14M125 not building up air

by Dan
(Vancouver,WA USA)

I have 14M125 and it's not building up air, the temperature for the compressor pump gets very hot according to the gage, but engine temperature is normal.

Also would like to find out how to check oil level in the compressor pump.

Thank you.

14M125 overheating / oil
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

A bit of a guess, but if this is similar to the 16MS125, then there's an elbow on the fill port - you should see oil in the elbow. It's below the control panel near center of the control panel.

It holds 20 quarts, so it may take a bit to bring it up, if you don't see it.

Compressor oil Normal 160 - 225° F (72 -107°C).
