Well it seems the 130000 series 5HP Briggs just gave up on my air compressor.
I have another that might be a good candidate to take its place, and I know the dimensions of the crank PTO end on the potential replacement. (it's not attached to anything right now, out in the open where I can see it)
but w/o pulling the compressor apart I don't yet know what diam. crank the dead engine has.
(we are talking "dead" as in it just died/seized up tight on me, been "dying" a slow death for a while for numerous reasons)
Can I tell maybe by model and type number off the engine, what the dimensions of the crank would be on the engine that's on there now to see if what I have is gonna work?
I am hoping it's a "go" because one thing I know about the potential replacement, is that it has a ball bearing on the PTO end of the crank rather than a sleeve bearing. (both the dead motor and the potential replacement are 130000 series 5HP horizontal, do not have exact numbers from either in front of me at the moment)
