Not sure what the rear compressor pump port is for

The pulley is 10 1/8" and the compressor is about 15" tall.


It has two pistons and some numbers on the body shown in the attached pictures, but no company name that I could find.

It didn't have any oil in it when I found it, just a bunch of dried up clumps of dusty stuff.

I blew out as much of it as I could and put some 30 weight oil in for a test.

With a 1hp motor it was running and sounded fine, but not producing much air pressure (not pushing my thumb off the out port).

Any idea what the make and model of this compressor is? Also, do you think it works, and if it does what do I need to get it up and running again?
