Tag on tank

Does your tank have a tag welded on? It should have the year of manufacture on that tag.

Nelson, I seem to be getting a ton of these inquiries of late, so I will be putting up a page about identifying older air compressors soon.

Watch for it, and more importantly, when you post there I hope you can add a few photos as folks will need to see it to help.

Cheers,

Bill

Model number of older Champion?

by Tom

Can't find a model # on pump. I only have the pump, bought at auction. Pump is only stamped in two places. Crankcase is stamped NR-9A. Head is stamped NR-14-6A. I am really only looking for model because it leaks oil everywhere, other than that runs great.

Happy to post this for you, Tom. It would be beneficial if you had uploaded some photos too.
