A friend gave me this old compressor about 20 years ago. It sat for about 15 years and I finally changed the oil, cleaned the valve discs, and replaced the electrical plug. Amazingly, it fired up and seems to run great.


The tank has a plate indicating it was made by W. H. Anderson in Detroit. The pump case has Air-Flo cast into it.

I'd also like to know what the grease fittings on the valve bodies are for. Are these for oiling?

I'd like to know what kind of compressor it is and what it's rated for. I have attached some pictures.
