I have had this 4 cylinder in-line compressor for more than 10 years, its older than Moses himself and I am certain there aren't any parts left in the word.

 

All that being said I am throwing it out there for help in identifying it and seeing if there is the slightest chance someone might have a crankshaft.

 

It's super quiet and I used it cool a grinder I use for drill bit sharpening. 

 

If anyone can help me ID the unit and any possible parts it would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance

Looks like an old Sears unit built back around 1970 or so.  When I worked for the state they bought close to 100 of those units for use in the state parks.  3/4 hp electric motor mounted on a 10 gal tank with 2 wheels and handle for towing around.  Should be a felt strip under that screen on top.  Used a lot for painting and the filter would get plugged up with paint.  Haven't seen one around for a long time.

I kid you not, it is quiet and a quick pumper I love this little compressor.   But its time has come and gone and I am afraid it will go in the recycle bucket if i cannot find some parts

Chieffan, thank you. I went to the sears website and started from the oldest working backwards and I found the unit. Now that I know its a sears, all I need to do is determine the manufacturer and then start looking for specific parts.

 

This is the greatest place for help on the oddities we find in the old barns and shed.

Sears of course has no parts..............................

 

But, they did tell me it was a Campbell Hausfeld unit. Score one for the old man this morning

I got a complete unit in the garage, the electric motor is getting tired and the pulley on the compressor is a bit bent, but it works.
