That would make a nice little show piece to tow with a GT at shows :thumbs:  How may psi did something like that run ? That might be the only thing that would make me nervous if it was set higher then that tank/tubes was designed for . Really cool !!!

  Looks like a nice unit complete w/ unloader valve it appears. Is that a hole drilled in the air "tank" near the pump flywheel? Don't see a press gauge, so you need to find what it's running at. You could pull the pump head to get cyl dimensions and figure CFM at whatever the RPM is.

the hole at the rear near the pump flywwheel is threaded. there is no pressure guage,like you said mike i'll have to measure the piston and figure what the output of the pump is, because I have no idea.
