I filled the compressor with oil today and fired it up. It's a lot better than the Sears Companion 2hp, 8 gallon oilless compressor that I was using ( my dads ).. that thing got real hot quick and generated a lot of water ( water seperators were working overtime ).. this new 1 does not get even close to the same temp on the cyl head, recovers preassure much quicker, and it's a little quieter. I don't know what the harbor freight workers were saying about the cylinder head, it's working fine, and looking at the parts breakdown, there is no mention of the cylinder head being liquid filled.
