Ingersoll Rand Compressor question....

Tonight I was able to pick up an older Ingersoll Rand Model 242 type-30 horizontal tank compressor on the cheap, like $100 cheap.

I have to clean it up and give it a shot of paint, but it has a rebuilt pump and the tank is solid. My problem is it was missing the motor(which I couldn't have used anyways seeing it was a 3 phase motor). But here's my quandary, I found a 6 HP motor that I could use(single phase) but it is rated at 3450 rpm and the compressor originally had a 1750.

The last thing I want to do is run that pump at twice the original RPM, so does anyone know where I could pick up a double V pulley to correct my rpm to the pump?

Well, I guess had I done a little more research I would have found this super nice Baldor motor that is pretty much a direct replacement for what I need.

You select the size pulleys to marry the compressor and motor speeds, ie. get them at their design operating speed. Usually done with the motor pulley.
