Looking for anything I could find on this vintage air compressor please.

I received this older compressor and was looking for anything I could find on it.

A manufacturer, model, re-build kit, old manual, anything I can get really.

It seems to work well, it’s just for tires around the house.

It fills the tank, slowly. I replaced the, heat damaged I believe, one way valve, which helped. The old one was stuck and would flow air both ways.

The line feeding the tank does gets pretty hot, although I haven’t measured it.


Looks like an old Champion pump.

Looks like an old Champion pump. Color and shape of crankcase along with fine pitch cooling fins are the clues.


Have one like it

I have one like it but it’s a three cylinder. No name or model number. It’s at a machine shop now getting bearings out.

Need help finding the smaller of the three piston and rod.

Not a champion. It is an E.L.SMITH who as far as I know is out of business. Used to see them with an air conditioner type clutch on it & mounted under the hood of tire repair trucks.
