Well that's a bummer, because I assure you they are identical. I pulled the pump off my 5 hp HF compressor immediately after I bought it, and it's stamped Made In Italy. T29S, which is the same ones Belaire use. The 7.5 pump was the same as well from all my research, I just can't remember the IMC pump number (B2000? Something like that). Unfortunately I believe HF stopped selling the 7.5.
