rubber plug over the hole between the fans is missing in mine.

That's where I ran the wire for the temperature gauge that's missing!   :P
These compressors donot have a temp gauge.

Quick question for the experts about the CS3 from Airgun & Archery:

Will the CS3 leak oil if stored on it's side?

I just used the compressor to fill my avenger from 3000-4000 psi and just noticed there's oil under the floor.

I opened the top cover and saw oil splashed all over the place but don't know where it's coming from.

When I got the CS3, I tested with the dead head and then stored it on it's side until the avenger came.

Could there be a leak / problem or does it not hold oil on it's side?

Originally, it came with half a bottle of oil so I just checked the fill oil and made sure it was topped up to ~1/4 under the hole as shown on the video posted previously...

Thanks,
Rob

YES oil will leak out the crank vent DO NOT store on its side. Watch the video and adjust the oil level again if needed.

Is that the orange plastic thing with the 2 holes on top???

I refilled oil and then ran it in a small burst with dead head and it's spurting out of this orange plastic thing.

Hopefully the 2 refills (with probably little oil) did not hurt it...

Thanks,
Rob

Yep that orange rod is the Breather for the crank case to keep any pressure from building up in the crank case, just like the Yong heng compressors. You'll need to run it for awhile and let it clean itself out. Good idea to put a filter on the fill whip too.
Now you know never leave it on its side 😁

Thanks guys!

I will run it in short spurts with pressure release valve open until it clears...

You think the oil might get into the compressed output?

And I just put it in it's permanent upright position too... bummer...

Good idea to run it awhile or in spurts like you say. Travis says it won't hurt anything if a bit of oil gets on the high pressure side. It has a very high flash point so it won't blow up or anything.

That video shows a full bottle of oil!  Did you get a full bottle of oil?  The bottle in mine was only half full!
The bottle has exactly 1.5 ounces which is the correct amount. I sent the first 10 out with full bottles (2OZ) and guess what they all over filled their compressors LOL.

But you said 1/4" below bottom of fill hole, or some instruction like that....
The half full bottle didn't even come close to your level....so do we add oil to the
1/4" below fill hole level ??
Clarification in this is needed.
It's not a laughing matter.

Who else has stripped screw heads on the case?

About half the screws were stripped on mine. One could not be removed, it just sits and spins!  Itís as if they were installed with a power screwdriver and over tightened to the point the holes were stripped. Not sure if this was done at the factory or during the conversion to oil.

I need to get more oil, if a full bottle isnít enough, then I definitely wonít have enough to even test it. Kinda disappointed in the whole experience at this point. Youíd expect a new compressor to come with the correct amount of oil, adequate instructions and not have half the screws on the case already stripped!

I agree paul, it took a full bottle to get it 1/4" below the fill hole like directed in video.

Or maybe the wrong size tool stripped the screw heads.

So, I ran it on/off for a few hours last night.  It's still seeping out of the breather.  Here's question for Wes, Travis or any other owners with experience:

I put a tissue paper over the breather holes and there's a very strong air pushing in/out with each stroke.

Could this mean my piston rings are bad or is this common/acceptable?

Thanks,
Rob

As it needs to. As the piston moves up the volume of the crank case increases. When the piston moves down the crank case volume decreases pushing the air drawn in back out the breather. Now if it were a parallel twin with the pistons 180 degrees out from each other you wouldn't have that blowing out sucking in air movement just out if the rings weren't sealing correctly.

Ok.  At least it's not squirting out like before.  Will keep an eye on it.  I did notice oil coming out of the clear vent tube everytime I release the presssure valve now...  Hope that clears up overtime too...

I always get a little very dark (almost black) oil out of the bleed tube after each use. I don't expect that to ever change. This is true even after an oil change. Good thing is that I don't get any showing up on the small final filter. So I assume that the water / oil separater is doing a good job.

I got some synthetic HPA Compressor oil today and filled the crankcase to the recommended ľ" below the fill hole.  I also ran it through the set-up sequence and all went well.  I then topped off my AEA Backpacker (480cc CF Tank) to 3400 psi.  It took a little over 5 minutes to fill and the temp gauge read 100.2F.  For comparison, my Benjamin Recharge would have filled that air rifle in a little less than half the time and the temp would have been around 55C-60C (131F - 140F), so it does run cooler than the high speed, water cooled compressors.

Travis says 1.5oz is the right amount. If you put more in you'll find it starts bleeding oil out when you bleed the compressor. Those bottles are 2oz bottles. It's not half full but just under 2/3 or so. I measure mine with a little glass measuring cup.
I was being a little too generous and putting a bit more than 1.5 Oz in the first few I sent, but I learned on my compressor that the extra you put in is going to come out, so better to stick to the bosses orders 😁.

Any coming from Canada have had the outer shell removed and put on with an old fashioned screwdriver. 😊
I did have one screw strip., but that's it.
There is moisture catching beads in the inline filter. If your compressor shipped with oil in it, you may want to change out the beads.
You can buy a pack of 4 bags of blue moisture indicating beads from Amazon here: they turn pink when wet, and can be baked dry and reused.

 I have been watching this compressor through its development, I am a happy shoe box owner, and have one of Wes Bobs Warrior compressors as a portable in my truck.
 I consider this new design as a self contained shoe box, the one thing Shoe Box did not offer.
 No it will not fill tanks, but weighs less than an aluminum scuba, and is easily portable.

A little off topic question, but are there any instructions as to how to pack the inline filter? I have a Hong Yeng look alike (another story) and it came with virtually no instructions. There is a pack of what looks like clothe packing material, but I'm just not sure how they are supposed to be installed. Seem like they will restrict airflow? Anyway, any help pointing me in the right direction appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Short answer: No!  There are instructions, but nothing that details any sort of maintenance or repair.  It does show where to add grease, but the one I got doesn't use the grease.  I had the cover off, but didn't see anything that resembled an inline filter and there's not one of the fill whip, so I'm also interested in hearing about that.  The only thing I saw that remotely resembled a filter was an aluminum tube on the intake that had a cotton tampon filter stuffed in it.
