Oil-less compressor racket...any fixes??

Moving tons of stuff to the new place and my old piston compressor got tipped over and bent the crank...so we dusted off the old (but barely used) Sears 33 gal oil-less.

This thing is unbearable. No resale value, so I wonder if anyone has got some ideas to make it quiet(er)

When I shut it off, you can hear the big tank "chime" as the motor stops. So I think the tank is resonating like a huge bell.

This tank sits on real tires with valve stems, and I tried putting a soft foam under the front metal stand...no difference.

Has anyone tried mounting the pump/motor unit, remotely off of the tank? Is it worth a try?
