      Camping coolers use the same method today, with a water absorbent material on the outside covered with perforated aluminum and plastic inside,

      Good for keeping your beer cool Bruce.

    Re: Grasso M-1 oil pressure

    Unfortunately oil pressure regulator not part of overhaul kit to my knowledge.
    Also need "0" rings for unloader block to replace pressure

    Also how many hours on compressor since major service

    Thanks for the replys and the information sent.

    I have 4.5 bar oil pressure which I thought was excessive if the oil pressure was just used

    Control oil pressure 6 bar (above discharge)

    Like Ranger - a couple of times I've replaced the Overflow valve (6 bar) underneath
