Looking for anything I could find on this vintage air compressor

I received this older compressor and was looking for anything I could find on it. A manufacturer, model, re-build kit, old manual, anything I can get really. It seems to work well, it's just for tires around the house. It fills the tank, slowly. I replaced the, heat damaged I believe, one way valve, which helped. The old one was stuck and would flow air both ways. The line feeding the tank does gets pretty hot, although I haven't measured it.

Looks like an old Champion pump.

Looks like an old Champion pump. Color and shape of crankcase along with fine pitch cooling fins are the clues.

Looks like an old Brunner pump. Out of business for 30+ years now. Parts are difficult but not impossible to find.
