Air compressor pulley
Older air compressor pump

Hi, I bought this compressor several years ago from a pawn shop and would really like to know more about it

This pump measures roughly 12"H X 8"D X 4"W. The flywheel measures 10".

It's driven by a 3HP, 3465rpm Weg compressor duty motor.

The pulley on the motor measures about 2-1/8".

The only marking I can find is "this side out" on the flywheel, although I haven't looked on the bottom.

The thermal reset has started tripping on the motor at about 50 psi. I've always thought the pump an motor were mismatched and when the thermal started kicking I figured I'd better find out what kind of pump i have and what kind of rpm it should be running.

thanks in advance for any help,
