    Recieved a call from Joe,this evening,and the Great White tank,and F8 SB compressor are shipping tomorrow!Very Happy How long should I let the compressor (SB) run,at first? I think it will take a long time to fill the 97cu ft tank from zero pressure?:lol:Should I run it for a couple hours,drain the first stage compressor tank,and let it cool down for a while,since it's new,or run it a full four hours,stop,relube the pistons, let it cool down then go again? Also should I remove the front cover,and use a extra fan? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Ron

    Sounds like you've got a good handle on it, RKS. I judge by how hot the cylinders feel to the touch.
