Big air compressor info...

I was hoping maybe OldRed or somebody else with experience on big compressors could answer some questions for me.

I finally got my dream compressor! $280 for a 10 horse 120gal beast.
I don't know much about these and I have not been able to find much info on this brand. Any help from you guys is always greatly appreciated.

Its working fine, but I would like to know a few things.

Its three phase and it does not have any indication of direction.. Does it mater which way it turns?

What kind of oil do you use in these big boys? I would like to change it ASAP.

There is a weird air line going to the crank shaft cover.. What the heck is this? It has a little leak, but I am very curious of this anyway.

Here are some pictures.. Of the air line and crank cover. Also one of the compressor in the back of my buddys S-10. I love that one!

Thanks for any info you can give fellas.
