@kaylaindy, I’ll bet that the hydraulic fluid that you used in the Yong Heng is turning black very quickly. The hydraulic fluid that you used is more like brake fluid in a car, and not more like lubricating oil. Additionally, its best to use 100% synthetic oil for your HPAC (high pressure air compressor). How do I know this, you may ask? A while back I was naïve enough to use the #46 hydraulic fluid in a small Yong Heng clone. And it ate itself in a very short amount of time. My recommendation is to use high pressure air compressor oil, like the Royal Purple Synfilm compressor oil. Trust me, you’ll thank me later on… I think there must be a Chinese to English translate problem when it comes to the correct oil to use for the small HPACs. FYI, ISO 100 oil is equivalent in viscosity to 30 weight motor oil.
