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
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.
