Hi Frank:

I could take a guess, but there are so many different brands and sizes of air compressors out there, I'd almost certainly be wrong about the age and type.

As to the oil, visit your local compressor store and ask for a good quality compressor oil.

Or, why not visit the home page, click on the Speedaire button in the nav bar, and follow the guidelines on that page to get to your closest Speedaire sales and service depot? They'll certainly be able to help you with your questions.

Cheers,

Bill

Jeff, please visit the home page of this site, and in the third paragraph down from the top of the the page is a link to the page with the information you seek.

I can't make specific recommendations for a specific product, but the manufacturer sure can.

SPEEDAIRE AIR COMPRESSOR - how to regulate air pressure

how to regulate air pressure ON SPEEDAIRE AIR COMPRESSOR.

Howdy:

If you are talking about the air pressure inside the tank, that's handled by the pressure switch. That's the device that turns the compressor on and off depending on what pressure is in the air tank.

You regulate the air pressure on your Speedaire air compressor the same way you regulate it on any compressor.

Where the air discharges from the tank and to the coupler into which you plug your air line, there should be a regulator installed.

That regulator will regulate the downstream air pressure (the air after the regulator itself) to whatever pressure you have set it to.

Here's full information about regulators.

Cheers,

Bill
