What type of oil for kilby oba

My jeep came with a kilby. I didnt get a reply from them (only sent one email in their defense) and I can't find anything online.

Can I just use regular compressor oil in the oiler? Going wheeling tomorrow and just looked and the oiler is almost out.

The chart published by York says to use PAG46 oil.

Awesome. Looks like something I can find at the parts store. Thanks man.


Here's a question too. How often do you guys open the valve to the oiler?

interesting info. kilby recommends 30 weight.

also, you need a special curved dipstick to check the oil.

in case anyone's interested

Download the york manual from the Kilby website and it shows how to make one of the dipsticks.

Yep 30 weight works fine in the York, that is all I ever used in mine.
