Refurbished an air compressor unit , got the Power Ho running well enough to run the compressor for a bit and pump it up. Blasted most of the compressor parts , apprentice got some window time, Pulled the head , cylinder looked good, Pulled the end plates, bearings were good, made some gaskets , slapped it together, primed and painted it, put a new pop off valve , air gauge , and fitting for the air chucking on it. Then had to find something to make it chug .... another story... if you look :) Hope to get after the Power Ho and freshen it up soon

Very nice! Was that the original pulley, have any green on it? It looks a little different from the others I've seen.

Thanks. I'm going to say it is, there was only one coat of paint on the unit including the pulley, it also looks to be a ringer for the one on yours and Doug's (LP Bolens) , best I can tell by your pics anyways, envious of what looks to be the original gauge on your one.

I am very fortunate to have the original pressure gauge on mine, too.
