Help with oil for old compressor
by Greg DeWald
(Wadsworth, IL, USA)
My parents bought a 5 HP, 60 gal Sanborn Magna Force Air Compressor in 1991 and it still works great. However, my husband went to change the oil and could not find the type of oil that is listed in the manual: SAE 40 non-detergent oil only
Does anyone know if we can just use the Compressor Oil sold at Ace Hardware? We live in Lake County IL and are unable to find Non-Detergent SAE 40 Oil.
