GAR37 screw compressor leaking oil

We have a GAR37 unit in our locomotive and the unit is leaking oil out into the compressor bay.


We don't seem to have any kind of leak into the system.

This past weekend we went thru more than a gallon of oil and it is only getting worse.

Any Suggestions would be great.

We have ordered a replacement compressor, but at $37,000 and a 4 to 6 week delivery window, I am worried what we have won't last.
