Everybody good day to you and welcome back. Glad you're here. We're gonna gonna have a departure from the normal operation and uh do something a little different shop's a little slow power this unit off. I'm gonna do a little bit of maintenance in the uh year or so.

That i've been here. I do not believe that these compressors have ever been serviced. So i think i'm gonna do that today this uh should end up being pretty straightforward. We drain the oil out put the oil in lubricate.

The places where we can lubricate and then we will repeat with a compressing unit. Number two first let's arrange this so the liquid flows downhill. I don't want to overflow my drain. There see i think that's 19 million meters.

Oh let's see what we got in here. Does it have oil. Nobody knows the shadow nose. That's still pretty good looking oil too how about that wonderful not bad for at least a year.

Let's angry fire this fill hole real quick reverse plate that was like the best one ever okay we'll let that drain. I suppose i can take this opportunity to lube the bearings on the motors and this one's also shut down so i can loop this one too. There's a front bearing and a rear bearing and they both have a grease fitting lubricated dangly. Bit a couple squeezes nothing overkill.

I'll do about four and two more on that machine over yonder taking precautions because this compressor is still live. I did not shut this one down. I don't think i can fit a drain pan into this area. Here.

So i may have to just vacuum this out or something like that not certain it says hand tied only hey what do you know it is let's see if there's oil in this one don't start. Oh yeah. She's full good click check it out. We're using straight 30 weight no detergents no additives 30 weight engine oil suitable for compressors and hydraulic systems there and because there's inevitably going to be spillage.

We'll just put that pan back to a rest said spillage. I've only got three quarts of this so i hope i have enough for both units whoa saved. It it's pretty thick oil how about that more we need more there's that mustang again riding around being a mustang. We're gonna be short.

I think i'm short on how much oil i have maybe oh it's gonna be. Close. Yeah i think i'm gonna come up a little short 15. Quarts.

Now the sticky note on the other drain plug said tight and hand tied only click okay serviced this one is complete powering back on okay let's get compressing unit number two powered down. I think i have an idea and my idea is to really change things up see you guys are very used to me doing long range pouring things. But i don't think we've ever done long range draining things let's try that we'll just let gravity do the work for us. So.

We don't have to hmm. This is going to work straight down means. It's going to land like right here. Oh that's like sketch that's not gonna work not at all.

But if i can support this bucket from three points that might work we're doing it it's gonna happen. It's either gonna work or it's not and we're way too invested. At this point to back away all right let. It ride.
No. Oh. No there oh beautiful long range draining things. That's first ever okie dokes intermission.

Time. It's hot in here. I'm going to let this thing do its job. Let gravity take over and i'll be back when this is done i decided to change that up a bit.

It was starting to run and curve backwards and it almost contacted. The tank. Which was going to spill on the floor that would be bad. So.

We did this should have thought of that the first time all right that was successful click you know that sounds so unnatural in english to pronounce the k in front of an n. Even though canipex says that it's comipex. Oh. That's troye tell me.

What's wrong with all right. Oh that unit works fire up this one next negative someone is in need of assistance. Thank you you're welcome. I better grab the right size stuff don't you call me a dog face pony soldier oh i grabbed the wrong socket i'm stupid i gotta do it again fail a lot of work.

I can't believe i couldn't see that it was a 13 ring okay let's do this again you're welcome sir good luck have fun see you later thank you all right fellas that's gonna be your wrap. I think i'm all done here bless you as always like thank you for watching hope you enjoyed this video. If you did you know the drill tap tap that like button drop. Me a comment or two.

And most importantly. Don't forget to have yourselves a great day see you guys later bye.

    Work is always better when it's done with Knipex!

    Hi Ray….Mr madaket is correct ! But you failed to change or at least blow out the air filter ! Highly recommended , the unit doesn't work so hard with a clean filter .
    It has to breathe thru valves just like an engine . Plus you must drain the tanks daily and that would have been a good time to do it . Nice to see you care for the equipment . Now get the ac machine fixed , haha . Good to see an honest mechanic and not just a parts replacer to figure out what is wrong . Love your channel .

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tunicaprinter says:

    A funnel and PVC pipe work well for long distance draining

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark K says:

    Come on Ray, you need to grow up. You act like a child have the time. Just complete the service like a grown ass adult. Your little games at times cost your company money that should be deducted from your pay cheque.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Hitchcock says:

    The drain fittings on the compressors are pipe thread. Why not extend it out past the tank and put a ball valve on it and a short nipple. Then stick a pipe cap in the end. They

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Gestier says:

    Those compressors have the world's beefiest fill plugs

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Johnson says:

    You, Sir, are EVIL!!! Had to replace a serpentine belt, tensioner, and idler pulley on my car. Every bolt I tightened/loosened was followed by a "CLICK" or "UNCLICK"! Every dropped tool was followed by "gravity, rachet handle", etc . My wife is thinking about prohibiting me using the computer! !!!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars OURv says:

    Air compressors use special oil. 10W or is it 20W
    non detergent. Thats why year old oil looks clean.

    Are you not going to fix that Mustang that just rolled in ? Ha.

    Donald Knuth is the author of The Art of Programming. I found out that you pronounce his last name as "knuth" and not "nuth". His name is German. I guess Knipex is a German company?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars larry munday says:

    Drain the water out of the tanks in case the auto drains are plugged

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brain Tumor says:

    yea, you dont really change compressor oil like that, only time ive seen it changed is if testing lab says to

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Derrickson says:

    I would have hung the bucket off the fill cap

    Ok….game on to post stupid Camaro and corvette drivers. You asked for it. Lol.

    Next episode: Ray cleans the floor.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike marshall says:

    ray, from the look of the rear units oil stained tank, I'd say previous compressor technicians didn't even use a bucket.😆

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darwin Long says:

    the reason oil in cars turns black is because of the burning carbon fuel. With only clean air going inot the compressor, the oil never gets contaminated so it doesn't necessarily go bad.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dj RD says:

    What else can you expect from a mustang ? Lol

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ctiley2212 says:

    Although the oil bottle claimed it was suited to certain situations, it looked like it was Crudoline which is totally unsuited for anything.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Audley Racing says:

    Had Ro to like this, line a car dropped off (tow in) line b multi point inspection. Engine was seized and starter was melted

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheHoneyBadger says:

    How often is the condensation drained out of the air tanks? And how about changing the air intake filters.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars smadas4192 says:

    I guess that's the condition of ships? Messy!

    Even the smartest of human units don't always see the oblivious… Oops, I mean obvious! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars smadas4192 says:

    Ohhhh noooooooooo
    Ray, it was just replaced last week! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Porrelli says:

    When servicing a compressor, you also need to check and blow clean/replace the air filters, adjust the belt/s tension and check the unloader system is working correctly as well as check the cut out pressure (125psi/880kpa) and how long it takes to cycle(top itself back off without anyone using air). Drain the reciever and check the safety valves operation.

    What exactly IS a "dog faced pony soldier"?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars oldhp mopar says:

    Gunna check the air filters???

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed P says:

    Ray ,Air compressors are an often overlooked item in most shops until…… Don't forget the air filter and tank drain and belt tension and a tag with date of service and sump capacity for the next time.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Homer Simpson says:

    Hey what gives no brake cleaner again, I cannot make any money if you don;t start using my product, Ray! only kidding!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dm7097 says:

    I liked seeing the nether regions of the shop. 😁

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Voelker says:

    Ray got a drain plug out cleanly, I'm very proud.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darren says:

    Ray, you could sweep the shop and share your stories and it would be a great video!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Nagy says:

    My damn 96 mustang GT lost the transmission seal down in longboat key last week…. Forgot your shop was that close by before I had it trailered back to Orlando

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars L.A. Commander says:

    Gosh Ray, that old oil that came out of the compressor looked almost new! It seemed like almost a waste of time to change that oil. Perhaps some other flunkey changed it last month and nobody bothered to document it.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zack Langley says:

    On the Knipex YouTube channel, the American/English speaking representatives usually pronounce it “nip-ex” and the Germans call it “K-nīp-ex”, but it’s a German company so it’s proper to pronounce it the “weird sounding” way

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1957Free says:

    Thanks Ray

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars watchingitallhere says:

    If you ain't spilling oil everywhere you doing it wrong, pour faster. 👍

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Ershler says:

    I am very disappointed that you didn’t use up several cans of brake cleaner so that the compressors would be nice and shiny ✨ 😜

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tony longbard says:

    You shouda used an adjustable socket! just sayin!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stealth G35 Infiniti says:

    Ray, by chance did you check the drain in the tank to remove any water?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Outlet says:

    I also use a 5gal. plastic container to catch my old oil, but with a twist. I heat the top of the container with a heat gun until it is pliable. Then I press it against the tank until it curves around the tank. Oil goes into the tub and not on the floor.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nevile Dawes says:

    Knipex for a kinetic advantage 😂

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck R says:

    Oil gravity 😁

    You pronounce it Kneep-ex 🙂

    Wow, we have been admitted into the shop's Inner Sanctum Sanctorum. I played Strauss's "Also sprach Zarathustra / Dudamel" while I watched this.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Massey says:

    You should have serviced or replaced the air filters.
