Model 106.152540 Compressor locks up??

Sears / Craftsman 106.152540 compressor oil fill
5/09/2015 A Model 106.152540 100 psi single cylinder utility air compressor tipped over.
Since then, the electric motor runs great, but the compressor will only turn about half a revolution before pulling down the electric motor.
I opened the top of the compressor and can manually rotate the compressor and watch what I think is the piston, move up and down.
How do I free the compressor up??
