Thanks, Rick and Peter.
Just got done watching Bob’s videos on resealing. Looks pretty straightforward
and not difficult at all. I ordered a resealing kit with the shaft protector
on eBay for about $23 just now, so I’ll probably take this on next week.
Any reason why one couldn’t use compressor oil rather than mineral oil for
Also, I assume there are charts somewhere that will give the amount of oil to
fill the compressor with before reinstalling it? I’ll do some Googling….
