How many HP can my Dayton 2z157b safely handle?

I have a Dayton model #2z157b compressor on a older Honeywell tank about 20-30 gallons but the motor was replaced with what I believe to be a to small 1/3 HP motor. Can I upgrade to a larger motor and how big can I safely go with out destroying the pump?
