What oil for 35yr old Sanborn 44A50-15 air compressor
(honeoye falls, ny)
manual says 10W oil. What do you recommed?
I recommend that you use what the manual recommends, Jon.
If someone hasn't got a manul for their air compressor, then the oil page on this site will tell you to visit the compressor store and purchase compressor lubricating oil. You likely cannot go wrong with that.
But, if you have the manual, how is it you would question the manufacturer's recommendation?
I were you, I'd use what the manual says to lube your compressor.
