    I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but when you're in Rome, you need to do as the Romans do. We don't use the metric system here, and this is a US based forum. Convert to psig and psid, and repost.

    YCAJ Oil

    YCAJ - Apple Jack

    What Style or Model Number or Serial.

    Oil pressure: Always know the condition of your Oil Filter.

    YCAJA - Large Recips - lots of trouble with oil pressure. Assure proper cc heater operation and amps. Keep the compressors warm or you'll be cooked. Also the oil pumps love to wear in and then wear out.

    Bon Chance,

    Just updated my profile. Tks.

    This compressor just have an oil screen/mesh on the sump. I΄ve already opened, it was ok. My next move will be open the compressor and try to search for a fault. That΄s why I asked for help here, it will be a lot easyer with a manual. Ill keep updating as soon as I find something.

    Thanks for your help.

    Do all your testing to eliminate everything that obvious but to be honest these compressor are known to have internal issues if they have excessive run hours JMHO.
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    I can fix broke but i can't fix stupid !

    Thanks Dweber101. Good info you send me but this compressor is a JH63 Style. It have some differences to the one you send me.
    Before servicing the compressor I would like to have the manual.

    Tks again.
