As you can see in the pictures the tank which is about 20 gallons says Huskee farm equipment on it. There is no identifying stamp on the pump except the number 1393. It all ran fine when I tested it . The air intake is just a screen with some filter material behind it. Its there something missing from the intake? What do I put inside for filter material.

I will just buy a cheap foam filter like the ring they sell that goes around car air filters and put it in there. It seems like all the pictures I see of compressor have a fancy filters hanging from them.
Thanks for your help

It's there to keep relatively big stuff out - think lawnmower - oiled soft foam.

The key is getting porous enough to not restrict flow too much while catching most of what floats around in the air.
