what old compressor I have

I picked up this compressor recently and cannot find much info about it. I am looking for info because I am trying to troubleshoot why the engine just cuts out at pressure instead of kicking down to idle. Can anyone help so I know what parts I can order for it?

It is an ABAC 6000

The pump is an ABAC 6000. If the compressor is not dumping air from the pump to atmosphere when it throttles down, the load from the compressor will stall the motor.
