I dont know if there's a way to keep the oil from leaking out. Everyone I've seen talk about them says they always have to add some oil periodically. I think the main thing is keeping that oil from getting into your valves so run all the necessary filters & stuff.

Alright i got tired of looking but just read.Mark did a hell of allot of homework when it comes to these YORKS.I learned a hell of allot from him.He used to have a hell of a nice REgal on bags that would get some air under the tires (on youtube btw)

I've never really brought this up just because almost everyone i've talked to that has done it still has blow by w/ the oil,so why bother.Just put in a coalescing filter or a small tank and filter to catch it.

To me why in the hell would you want to reclaim used up oil.You dont drain the oil in your car and put it back in the top so why the shit would you want to reclaim it.Shit just dont make since.

Really what's $4.00 on a bottle of 30 ND??? and taking 2 min to take the plug out and check the level no the compressor?

i never knew it would be bad for the durability.


but this keeps the oil inside, so no need to refill
Is this a pic of your compressor??Have you done this mod and been successful ??

To me it just seams like it would give you a false sense of security thinking that your always toped off w/ oil.Maybe it's just me i like to be able to actually SEE a oil level line either in the coalescing filter of manually check it.Then to me it would give me a better sense of how much oil it's used up and spit out
