Hotrod series compressor will not start

by Dave
(Iroquois falls on.)

I have a Hotrod series compressor.


It was my dads and he is 83 with dementia.

He says he never took it apart but it looks to me like something is missing.

The switch is working properly and have power to the motor.

I also have power coming out of the motor but the wires coming out of the motor were taped up with packing tape.

There are 2 threaded holes on the side of the cylinder head.

I'm thinking something is missing like maybe a starter switch or some thing.

Was wondering if you may have a diagram you could send me. It's a Hotrod series 5 gal 3hp.

Thank you
