Is your compressor direct drive? Also known as an "oil-less" compressor.

Not sure it would apply to a direct drive, but my big ol' belt drive Quincy like to popped the breaker before the motor spun up enough to get off the start windings the other day. Compressor oil gets pretty thick when it's 10 out.

Fawteen, It is a direct drive, I guess you could call it a "modular" construction. The motor and compressor unit share the same framework. The shaft sticks out the back end with a fan on the end. The compressor unit is on the other end, BUT, it is not oiless. It has a regular piston and crankcase which requires oil as I mentioned. The unit had been sitting in an unheated storage area and had not been run in at least two months, and although we have only had two or three nights when the temps fell into the twenties, I guess the oil was just stiff, because once it got limbered up it ran fine. Sure do miss my old Craftsman.
