Hi Bill,

I've had this old compressor for 30 years and got it used from my brother. The name plate says General Electrical Equipment Co, Newark NJ and has a number stamped on the crank case (2MD-01-8). It is starting to blow a little oil when it hits high pressure and the relief valve pops. I want to try to repair or if I can. It also has a sight glass, but the oil filler hole is really high and I don't know how to maintain the oil
