Need help finding Manufacturer of old compressor

by C. Bassett
(Frankford, WV, US)


The unit uses a V-six block (looks like Buick V-6 block) with one cylindar bank serving as the compressor side and the other as the gas engine with carb driving it. Originally it was painted yellow. The unit weighs 500-600 lbs and seems to have lost it's ID tag. We are looking for any info we can find to bring it back into occasional service. any help will be sincerely appreciated!

That's an old farmers trick for making an air compressor - use half of an engine & let the remaining half provide the power. you can still buy one made from a VW air cooled flat 4.
