Has anybody seen this one?
Older air compressor plate
I don't know exactly why, but I just had to have this. I can't find anything about it or even the company that made it so I am hoping someone out there has.
I haven't had it running yet because the motor capacitor needs replacing and the old capacitor has no markings on it. I contacted the motor manufacturer (Century) with the model number and they don't even have a reference for that number.
If anyone has an old 3/4 hp Century motor with a single start capacitor, I certainly would appreciate getting the number or the microfarad rating so I could gen a new one.
Anyway, here are a few pictures of what I have and I hope someone can tell me more about it.
Thanks and your website is great.

Older air compressor long view
I think this is from the late 1970s or early 80s but not sure it did not come with a belt guard it is light blue and had stickers on both sides but one is missing I have included the safety related one
The motor is an Emerson 2hp
It was my dads and I am going to restore it in his memory he converted it to a storage tank about the time his mind slipped away.

Identify Mid-80s to Early 90s Air Compressor?
Mid-80s to Early 90s Air Compressor
Thank you for this site Bill!
I bought this compressor not long ago, and it works great. The previous owner said he bought it used in the early 90s. I'd like to overhaul the engine, but want to make sure I know exactly what it is before I order parts. Below are all the specs and numbers I have or could find for the compressor:
Specs: 5HP, 60 gallon, 125PSI, CCW rotation
Number on Tank: HTA 31303 and 3111 ('3111' is located directly above the pressure gauge fitting, and the 'HTA' # is located just above that)
Number on Engine: 03E (located on the front of engine in the lower right corner)
Number on inside of air intake filter housing 70123-66011, which cross-ref'd to a Curtis 70123-66140 filter
Belt #: A57
Thanks in advance for your help.
You are welcome, Mike. I hope someone adds information about your compressor as a comment here.
