UNITED STATES AIR COMPRESSOR Co
This is a 1947 66 gal 7CFM 1 pump with a slow start 220+v motor Air Compressor. This was my dads old compressor and I'm in the process of restoring it. Mainly I want to know the technical name and information on the original motor and if I can alter somehow the motor I have to correctly run the compressor. The pictures show the information on the new motor we had operating the compressor but incorrectly. The old motor started out real slow then clicked and sped to full speed. The new motor nearly rips the belts off as it starts. Please help me with this information and possibly if you have a motor that will operate my pump a little more efficiently than the old one and would consider trading for my new motor. Unfortunately I can't upload any more pictures nor can I post a simple link from photobucket, everything has changed!!!
Need pressure switch for a United States Air Compressor of Clevlend

Diaphragm United States Air Compressor
Here are some pics of the pressure switch off my vintage compressor.
As you can see the diaphragm is coming out of the metal piece.
My question is, can I replace this diaphragm? If so how is it held in place? I cant seem to figure out how it is held in there and I don't want to just pry it all apart for fear of destroying it.
If the diaphragm can't be replaced, then I guess I need to replace the whole piece. If this is the case, does anyone have this piece? I can provide more info about the compressor.
