Compressor engine won't start.

Compressor would not start, until we noticed there was a little oil not showing in the sightglass on the compressor side. The compressor fired up right after putting fresh oil in and bring it up to the site glass. Trying to understand the logic behind that since there is no electronic connection between the motor and the compressor side of the unit

Could have been simple drag from the pump, or maybe some mechanical low oil sensing gizmo.

Make / model?

Stationary or towable?
