Why is my compressor by passing oil
by Terry Benkis
(Port Augusta, South Australia)
old trailer type compressor
My old trailer type compressor has developed a oil leak around the drive shaft. I have pulled the seals out and they appear in good condition and they are still tight on the shaft.
When the unit is running it is fine for about 10-15 seconds then the oil comes out from around the drive shaft under pressure.
I have taken the compressor to many repair shops and no one is able to tell me what brand it is or able to fix the unit.
Any help identifying it and fixing it would be greatly appreciated.
