INGERSOLL RAND 185 is overheating

I HAVE A 1989 INGERSOLL RAND P185 COMPRESSOR AND THE COMPRESSOR IS OVERHEATING. WE JUST CHANGED THE SEPERATOR FILTER AND HYDRAULIC OIL FILTER AND THE OIL ITSELF. THEN ALL THE LINES TO COMPRESSOR STARTED LEAKING SO WE FIXED THEM. NOW WHEN YOU RUN THE COMPRESSOR AND ENGAGE IT THE COMPRESSOR ITSELF STARTS SMOKING AND GETS EXTREMELY HOT BUT WONT SHUT OFF. ANY IDEAS?

overpressure?
by: Doug in s.d.ca

The leaks and heat suggest lube problems.

Maybe something is blocking one of those lines that was leaking, preventing lube getting to the compressor screws.

Another possibility: are you certain the oil you used is the right stuff?

I'd be inclined tom double-check and/or redo the maintenance work.

It started right after the maintenance, and pressure build up is normal?

overheating

Was the maintenance mentioned "because" of the overheating, or did the heating start afterward?

Is it building pressure? Going over cutoff pressure? or is it supposed to be "on-demand"?
