Hot spot on top of low pressure cylinder

by Albert
(Waterbury CT)

Noticed hot smell during fairly continuous run.


Hot spot on top of low pressure cylinder near output read 367 on IF thermometer.

Elsewhere normal warm 170 or so.

Oil is full, read 113 degrees.

Intake filter a little dusty but not bad.

Oil circulation problem?

How long was the run?

What compressor?

Duty cycle exceeded, perhaps?
