If you have no luck getting a manual, post back here if you need to obtain any specific info - special oil *is* required, I got mine from someone supplying ABAC compressors, and is ABAC branded with the name ISO VG 100. I think Simair supply their own type as well.
There is a sight glass in the motor unit to show oil level. You should open the Air tank drain cock after each use to release any moisture build-up. If I remember rightly the air regulator was fairly straight-forward to set up.
It's a nice compressor by the way - smooth and quiet. Bit heavy though.
In the meantime, I'll check my files as to the possible presence of a manual - I'm now getting a vague memory of having read it before.
