I have a montgomery wards XER6518 Compressor What is the HP for it


I saw just the compressor sitting in the Wards in baltimore for $20
in their bargain room 25 years ago. It is just the compressor no tank or motor it was new. It sat in my barn and I came across a craftsman 20 gallon tank that the one piece motor and compressor were burn't up so I welded a bracket and mounted the compressor on the tank and put a one and a half hp motor on it but the motor stalls at about 40 lb How big of a motor does it take ?

Probably 3-5HP.

But then, the ratio of the drive may just need adjustment - what is the pump speed with what you have now?
