building a gas powered air compressor

I would like to put an air compressor on my truck or trailer. It seems like every car I pickup now has locked up brakes or some other problem so they won't roll and they always have flat tires. Money is tight right now so this project has to be cheap. I have an air compressor pump I got free and an engine off a rototiller also free. I know I need an unloader valve and an air tank. This is the one i was thinking of. Is there anything else I need other than plumbing? I don't know much about the pump or motor I have so any help there would be appreciated. I also want to know if this will work and be safe.
Thanks for any help
