I was searching the archives and I noticed the topic of oil blowing out of York compressors came up a number of times in the past few months with nobody mentioning how to stop it. I had to fix one, so I wrote up a tech note and pasted up a few pictures showing how to do it. I think that it is the same fix that Sabre Force does for $75 plus shipping.

Hey...good write up!

I have a York but have yet to need your "quick fix"...no probs yet (knock wood!)

If I ever need to stop my york from pukin' oil, I'll be sure to check the archives here for your write up!

Great write up. I will be doing this fix because even with an oil coalescing filter I still get quite a bit of oil puking out of mine. Thanks. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

While on the subject, and not wanting to start a new thread, I have an air conditioning compressor that I ripped out of my 89 Daytona. Can I use this compressor in an OBA setup, or do I have to use a York??? I know absolutely nothing about this, so any links steering me in the right direction would be great <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

why not use JB weld or something to that effect so you don't have to worry about metal shavings. Only reason I ask is I don't really understand how to get the paper towel out of the hole after you jammed it down there

I called Climate Control last winter and was able to talk to a tech person about the York. He told me that if you spin the pulley too fast oil will come out. Also it's like any other motor with oil, it needs a breather. I have it written down some where, but the York has two oil filler plugs, one on each side. Take the one that is not having oil splash on from the rotation of the crank and put a barb fitting on and run a hose with a filter.

Pressure will decrease inside and oil that does make it up the tube will flow back down.

J1220: Search the archives; there is a lot of info on using other compressors. They have the opposite problem: You have to keep feeding them oil through the suction to keep them running.
Arndog: You just blow the paper plug out with compressed air on the suction hose with your thumb over the discharge outlet. JB weld should work too.
pvstoy: Venting the crankcase works pretty well too. I had my first compressor vented, but it still splashed some oil out into the suction side. I also had a problem finding a barbed fitting that would work without retapping the hole. The hole is SAE threads and all the hose fittings are NPT. It is just a matter of what you think is easier. If you plug the internal oil hole, then you don't have to vent the crank case.
