What motor specs are needed to convert IR T-30 to single phase?
I bought an IR T-30 with a bad motor. I need to convert it to single phase.
Here are the specs of the current motor:
Cat #: 37F360X532
Nom Eff: 87.5%
What specs would the single-phase motor need for this compressor?

My name is Terry and I recently acquired a T30 Ingersoll Rand two stage compressor that has a 7,5 HP Balder 3 phase electric motor 1725 RPM. My question is I would like to change the motor to a single phase 5HP motor, can you tell me if this will run my compressor ok?
IR Type 30 - we are not sure that the motor is turning correctly
we just bought a compressor with no fly wheel. We were able to get a new wheel but we are not sure that the motor is turning correctly. When looking at the motor does it turn clockwise or counter clockwise?
Brian, is there no plate on the motor?
According to this "The direction the shaft rotates can be changed on most motors by switching the right wires, there is usually a diagram on the motor.
The direction of rotation is usually determined by viewing the motor from the shaft end and is designated as CW (clockwise) or CCW (counter-clockwise). Note: Some manufactures may have a different method of determining shaft rotation but will usually make a note of it." from www.sawdustmaking.com.
I have looked at all the specs for the IR 30 compressor I could find, and it does not indicate the motor rotation, to help you orient the rotation of the flywheel.
If no one else can post this info for you, visit the local IR sales location, and observe the new ones. That's what I would do.
