Older Sears Craftsman receiver no components.

Receiver as I bought it
I ran across a 2 for 1 deal at a garage sale. First was the CH FL-3201 054; visible hole in the tank but 1/2 hp General Electric motor & 1cyl pump works great. I'd take any info on the GE motor and or 1cyl pump. I haven't been able to date the GE motor & haven't found any numbers on the pump. I'm going to grind off the mount on the CH and find a use for it...suggestions?
Second was the red Sears Craftsman receiver; which is my main reason for writing.
The tank did not have ANY components on it. The only identifying numbers are on the DeVilbiss tag. The tag states DeVilbiss Air Power Company, 150 psi @ 650 deg Farenheight 150 psi @ -20 deg Farenheight, MFGS No. 159122986. CAC-1091 is also stamped on the small 1" x 1 1/2 mounting bracket on the top of the receiver. The measures approx 27" weld to weld @ end caps adding an additional 3" each. Total length is approx 33" and approx 38" around. Other than that, I know NOTHING about it...what size in gal is it, capabilities, cfm etc etc etc. Tank was scoped. pressure tested and found to be solid. I had it blasted and powder coated with plans to purchase an appropriate motor/pump.
I would use this in the garage for the occasional air tool on my tractor (short term use on a bolt or two) blowing off the work bench & filling up tires (kids bikes, car, truck, tractor).
Great site & I appreciate the opportunity to seek some input.
