Somewhere they have stuff-information on how to make a compressor from a VW air cooled engine. 1/2 if it is the compressor.

Also you might want to add a 2nd tank to this. I didn't see how big the tank was. On a cheap 110 volt compressor it seemed to be always running. I added a 2nd tank and it would last longer with the pressure I wanted, but it did take twice as long to get back up to pressure. So it is always a trade off.
