4B247 swapped out with 2Z499 - Effect on CFM?
I'm somewhat new to the world of air compressors so I did what research I could and selected a compressor off of Craigslist that had a reasonable CFM rating.
Only when I got home I realized that it looks like both the motor and the compressor have been replaced at some point in their lives.
The compressor is marked up as a Speedaire 4B228B.
Its listed as having a Speedaire 4B247 compressor head but the reality is that it has a Speedaire 2Z499 compressor.
The motor is 240v 15amp listed at 2.96kw (4hp).
The original specs for this compressor was 10.8 SCFM @ 90PSI - I'm trying to figure out the effect on this having had the compressor head changed.
Any information greatly appreciated
GETTING A NEW COMPRESSOR HEAD

I HAVE A MODEL 5Z185A SPEEDAIRE COMPRESSOR. THE COMPRESSOR HEAD HAS GOTTEN TO THE POINT WHERE I CAN'T EVEN BE IN THE SHOP WHILE IT RUNS. EXTREMELY LOAD! THE NUMBER PRINTED ON THE COMPRESSOR HEAD IS 2Z630C.... CAN I STILL GET A REPLACEMENT?
Howdy Ben. I'd love to say yes, but I don't supply anything but information about using compressed air. The only way you'll know for sure is to contact Speedaire directly.
Go to the Speedaire page linked from the Nav bar on about-air-compressors.com , and follow the guidelines for locating your nearest Speedaire / Grainger dealer.
I'm sure you can contact them on line as well.
Cheers and good luck.
