Identify This Older Compressor

I do not know very much about this older air compressor. My brother-in-law once used it in a body shop he operated but that was 25 years ago. My son inherited it about 10 years ago and used it after he did some modifications or fixed parts and he had the 220 line to operate it which I do not have. I am attaching some picture but I certainly can take more time to take better pictures if it would help identifying this unit.


Thanks,

Adding new pics to my post?

How do I add more pictures to my post?

(You already have four photos with the original. Start a new thread, call it the same as this one part two, and you can add four more. I'll merge the two.)

@ Doug in S.D. - thanks. I'm
Going to crawl all over the compressor this weekend and get more details as you suggested and post those details here. This absolutely needs 220V but was functioning in my sons garage for the past several years til he moved and left it with me. I don't have a 220 line wired up in my garage so I can't even test it

Unless you only have two wires coming into your electric service panel, you have 220 there.

I can't read the emglo sticker, but can you?

How about the motor? A make/model might matter, along with the HP rating.
