I bought a used Sears Craftsman compressor which has not been used for three months. Is there anything I need to check or change before I start it up for the first time?
3 months isn't a terribly long time. If it is oil filled, you might check/change the oil and filter if it has one. As mentioned, drain the tank and check the condition of it. Rusty tank is a primary concern, of mine anyway. :smile:

What kind of pump does it have, if it is oil lubricated check the oil level, otherwise you should be able to just start it up and run it. Once the tank is filled may be a good idea to open the drain and let any water out that has accumulated.
