I have a 5hp Cambell Hausfeld 26 gal ASME tank, 6.5 scfm @40psi 5.1scfm @ 90 psi. Can I swap the pump out to get the cmf I need? Can the tank handle it? I'm asking this because it cost $400 less to purchase a new pump but I'm not sure if the compressor can handle it.

New pump?
by: Doug in s.d.ca

I don't think you need to worry about the tank - The issue is whether the motor is strong enough to run a bigger pump. Generally the answer will be no.

So if you can get the pump along with the motor to drive it, you'll be fine.
