Compressor question

I have an Ingersoll-Rand 175 cfm model P175CWD, it has a Deutz F4L1011E oil cooled motor.
I'm getting ready to change fluids and filters and wondered if anyone knows what type/weight of motor oil I should use.
It has around 1,600 on the hour meter and holds 13 qts because of the oil cooler. I'm thinking 15-40 Rotella but not sure.

Given the temps you are operating in, I would think 15-40 would be fine, but I am far from a skilled mechanic.

can try this and call and ask. They stock or can get parts for all older IR compressors. I got the # from calling IR .
