Changing Jun-Air oil to DCI SJ-27F synthetic oil
Older Jun-Air compressor
Old like new JUN-AIR COMPRESSORS. 20 & 23yr old silent oil lubricated JUN-AIR compressor. I've recently decided to start back painting after a long hiatus. Inspired by my eldest artist/son I'm dusting off the ole equipment, airbrush equipment.
I own from new 2 JUN-AIR compressors. The 6-25/Maxi and the 12-50 JUN-AIR. I've only had to top off the oil on the most used 6-25 JUN-AIR and make a few minor minor maintenance repairs to the NON-RETURN VALVE. Replacing twice the spring and o-rings and the unloader valve.
Whats needed now is oil changes to both compressor units, Causing me to research my SJ-27F synthetic oil options as this a senseless expensive maintenance requirement that is largely over due largely because of duration time 20+yrs.
The dilemma discussed on many JUN-AIR enthusiast threads like this is using the JUN-AIR OEM SJ-27F synthetic oil or finding another like SJ-27F brand.
The JUN-AIR is sold in many places over the MSRP actually cost $50.00 for 16oz direct from JUN-AIR.
My issue is I would need 5 16oz bottles $250.00 worth of before shipping cost.
I searched online and came across some other brand options on Amazon.com.
I ended up calling one of the sellers Dental Planet.COM spoke with helpful parts & service support rep who has assured me that the alternate DCI SJ-27F synthetic oil brand type was the most commonly sold brand and also comes in 24oz bottles and sells for $45.00 a bottle. So I have opted to purchase 3 bottles and I am awaiting my delivery.
I have including some pics of my units for viewing, enjoy. I will be back with my results and more pictures. Thanx for listening.
