Oil in air tanks


Recommended Posts

Engine Oli is getting past the Cylinder rings on the Compressor piston..

Time to either rebuild the Compressor or get a New/Exchange one..

keep draing all the airtanks more often

let all the tanks drain ovrnight

fit taps to drain tanks

also aircleaner may need a clean

when the compressor cuts out @ 120psi

the compressor pistons Rfree wheelin & can suk the oil up past the piston rings n then it gets blown down into the tanks

the above can happen if the engine & compressor use the same aircleaner

When I first went to drain the air tanks on my 1975 R685 I found that the passenger side tank had a quick disconnect in the tank where the drain should have been. 
 

what a mess came out of the tanks on that truck. There was even oil behind the dash and above the headliner due to an air leak at the air horn valve.

I would check the air filter and drain the tanks daily to see if this is a real problem or something you can live with

does the truck have an air dryer on it?

Yup, the back of my dash was grimy with oil/dirt from the my air wiper switch.
