    Ok I have a old cambel and hausfield 5 air compresser...Maybe 15 gallon or so..
    I pluged it in and after about 10 seconds it started flowing oil out of what looks to be a beather on the pump itself right on the lower area of the main pump..Not the elct motor..I took the gaurd off the pulley and there is a little pipe on the side and that is where the oil is coming out... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    Any ideas...

    A picture is worth a 1000 words.
    If you could snap a pic of what you mean it would help.
