Re: Amazing oil leak!

Original poster: David Speck <dave@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>


Best I could suggest is to replace the wire which passes under the oil level with solid bare wire, and solder on your stranded wire above the oil level. That should fix any wicking problems. It will be a pain to drag the transformers out of the oil bath, but that should fix your troubles.

  Any proven ideas on an additive that will
let gravity prevail and keep the oil from escaping, but not compromise its
insulative qualities?
