Air Compressor help please
#11
  
So I have this Husky Pro air compressor I bought 7 or 8 years ago used from a friend who was moving to China

It has developed an oil leak -  it's always leaked at least some -  probably caused from when we moved it a half mile from his house to mine on a furniture dolly down the street a few blocks lol.  Well it now leaking bad and as far as I can tell its the sight glass.

Ive scoured the internet for the right part.  Problem is I can't find it on the schematic or anywhere on husky or HD.  I see I can buy them relatively cheap from amazon but I need to know the size.

Im going have to drain the oil when I pull the sight glass so I really would like to only do that once and not lose use of my compressor for a couple days while I wait for the part.  So any clue?  Am I just missing it somewhere?  Maybe my google fu is acting up

Thanks in advance

Robert

"Who makes Husky air compressors?

At the moment, the Husky brand owned by Homer TLC, Inc. (Home Depot). Hand tools for Husky brand manufactures Stanley Logistics, Inc. and air compressors produced by Nu Air Corp. and Campbell Hausfeld exclusively for them."

Possibly a call to the Customer Service Depts. of these tow companies will get you the answer you're looking for.

Can you drain the oil, remove that sight glass and put some teflon tape on the threads?

Worth a shot. And nearly free.

Can you tilt it away from the sight glass so the oil is below the opening?  Then pop it out, measure the OD of the threads (and count TPI while you're at it), put it back, and stand it back up.  Do the same when you get the new part.

The same question was posted in off topic and Stwood had the same answer.   Sounds like the best way to go about it.   Agree with both of you.   Roly

Thanks

Reality is there are many who never leave the basement and there is a good brain trust there. And there are many who don't venture to the basement. So I asked both place. So Sue me
