identifying this old air compressor
need help identifying this air compressor. Someone suggested that it might be a refrigeration compressor converted. bought this at an auction and it has a 3/4HP engine made by Teco (Eatons of Canada) dating to 1962 (maybe earlier).
Compressor pump has a cast a number stamped on the side 6B3C. bottom body has a casting number of F49520. There's 2 holes on the other side that look like that's where an ID plate should go.
there are no decals or ID plates on the tank or pump, just the motor.
my other question is do you think the pump could handle a 3 or 5HP motor??
