Bill and Others…I have an old Ingersoll Rand G150 gas driven rotor vane compressor in good condition.

The equipment plate calls for “SAE 10W detergent-type heavy duty oil” to be used on the compressor side (5 gallons – MIL-L-2104B).

Can’t find straight 10W so what should I use? Thanks! Ted

SHELL ROTELLA® T1™ (for instance) meets the spec. Try a diesel truck stop type place, or order on-line
