Bill, I may have a doozy for you. I have an early 1980's vintage Dayton Speedaire compressor that I am in need of indentifying. The model number tag is gone - but I do have engine info. It is a Dayton Speedaire, portable, twin torpedo tanks, V-4 cylinder 2-stage compressor, powered with an 8 HP Kohler gas engine. I need to obtain specifications on it because I am going to mount it on a 60 gal tank and convert it to a 220v electric motor. I also need the electric HP rating equivalent to the 8 HP gas engine. This unit's era was back in the day when Dayton owned Speedaire before Grainger bought them. Grainger is of no help with this one. Thanks for any help you can give, David.

I am curious to know what size electric motor you mated to your Dayton Speedaire. I would like to do the same thing but don't know the gas to electric horsepower equivalent. Do you know the voltage and horsepower rating of your motor? Thx.
