Sorry to dig up a old thread but this is the closest I have found to what we are working on, owner said his was a 1h, it looks almost identical to the one pictured in the beginning of this thread with the exception of the cable lift. His cable is overhead. Does anybody know how much lube the transmission & final drives hold? It has the dry clutch if that helps. This unit has been broke down for at least 11 years, so I asked him about it. Turns out lack of interest. We made a deal I helped him get it started track back on and blade put back on for the use of it if I supply the needed lube. Not a bad deal if you ask me considering it only took about half a day to get to this point!

I had 2 Gardner Denver compresers that had the D 8 engines when I was in the sand blasting business .

Update the final drives do hold right at 5 gallons each, as for the transmission it was running out the hole where you check it at about 7 gallons. Both were completely dry because the owner had drained them for repairs. I sure am glad it didn't hold 50 gallons like he thought!
