I finally figured out why their was oil in my compressor tank.

While tinkering around with the original pump from the compressor i noticed why the it had not kept up with "the previous owner's needs". It had no oil. i had not expected this to come from a mechanic.

While thinking about it a minute ago, the oil must have come from the original pump. The viscosity of the oil must be to thick for it to easily come out of the drain cock of the tank.

Right now i am just hoping this is true, so that in case of another compressor breakdown i will have another pump. Please reply if you think that might be what was wrong.
