its in process right now(just finished plumbing) next week it should be in the shop getting setup for the 22's in the front

by the time i get it back my kp 6-link should be in and ready to install

on the ester oil i drained the oil and called jim at airlift and talked to him about some other stuff and he said they already switch the oil out when they ship now so i went and got some str8 30 w non deg oil and put it back in.

My first compressor with ester oil was very loud. My 2nd one I put 30w in, and it's very quiet. Fill up's are about every month. Yea, it will get very warm after a minute of use.

what's an easy way to fill them back up with out takeing them off?
can i just add oil from the discharge port since that's where it comes out

the drain port that was on the outside towards the fender was slighly stripped so i dont want to take it off and on alot and the other side is blocked by the bracket so i would have to pull it once a month to refill?

i use the hole on the side of the compressor. I dont think you could do it through the discharge port. It would all stay on top of the piston for a while. It may eventually drain, but I dont know how long that would take
