Hi Jim,

   I used one that came off our power lines back in the 70's when they were
updating the grid. 
   The oil was for heat transfer. 

   I pulled it from the oil and let it dry out for a few months.  
   It never really drys but the weeping eventually stopped.

   Mine ran a pair of 3-1000Z.  2400 VAC on the secondary.  
   It loafed along at legal limit.
   I think I paid all of $25 for it.  

   Never had an issue with insulation breakdown.
