husky 60 gal. dip stick pops out within 45 seconds

Husky 60 gallon has not been used for months. So I decided before starting it I put new oil in it. Turned it on and heard clicking sound and within 30 to 45 seconds it built up enough pressure that the dip stick popped out Turned off unit tried it again, no clicking sound however dip stick pops out due to pressure.

Compressor dip stick pops out

Check and make sure that the vent hole in the oil dip stick is clear.

If it is, and the dip stick pops out, you've got a significant blow by problem of the piston seals I would think.
