So I found this used gas powered air compressor. This local company bought a service truck and wanted a on board air compressor so the seller threw this in to make it a better deal. well there mechanic said it was a POS and to off it. so i bought it for 50 bucks. (not to mention after talking with the owner for about an hour he insisted on me emailing him my resume)

But any way here it is, A Champion 4 cyl, two stage pump with a V twin gas powered engine. here is a link to the pump specs.

I know nothing about its condition or any specs on the engine I have only owned it for about 16 hours. all of which I have been at work.

I want to add my 100 gallon tank to this and build it on a trailer frame, something small that my GT can tow it around the property. Or for a bigger job throw it behind my truck and tow it to a job site. But for 50 bucks I couldnt pass it up.

Jonathon, I hope it works for you. For $50, you can't go too wrong. Plus, you might get a job out of the deal. Good luck with it all!

From the compressor specs, I'd say you are a bit over powered. Hope you can get the engine running without too much trouble. Should make a great compressor for your needs.

Well Got some time to Diag the no spark situation. Looked at how it had been wired up before they cut the wire harness. They had supplied the coild with 12V! They probably cut the wires when all the smoke started coming from the engine.

Tractor with rear PTO equals cheap power if you already have one.

Nothing with rear PTO, But I do have one with a front pto!?!?! Ordered two new coils today should see them in about a week. Which is just fine I have too much other stuff to do right now. Gonna pull the pump off and clean it all up make this thing look all pretty.
