Compressor pump sheave
I have just aquired this pump it has C1208 on it. It supposedly came off of a Sears model 106175541. From what I was able to gather that was a 1 to 1 1/2 HP air compressor, but, some had a 5 Hp motor. I cross referenced the pump and it also can be used with up to a 5 HP motor. I would really like to put a 3 to 5 HP motor on it if possible. I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
