Source for Air compressor pulleys

So the motor on my dad's air compressor went out after 40 something odd years. I can get a good Baldor motor cheap but it runs at 2X the RPM of the old motor. Where can someone get a dual belt pulley.

I got one at a local Grainger, but most hardware stores or farm supply stores should have them.

What brand of compressor,look for a motor that spins at 17xx RPMS not the 3475 RPM. There are a lot of new motors out there. Any pictures? Shawn

Yea I found a slower motor. This compressor is Older than dirt bought by my uncle surplus from a Filling station and inherited by my dad. It's a 1940's era GE 2HP electric motor and it's almost as big as the tank.

Amazing that it's ran for 60 years.

If it is the original tank I would strongly suggest you think seriously, very seriously, about retiring that thing. A tank that old is an accident just waiting for the right time and the consequences of taking a chance with it could be catastrophic!

A lot of A.C. motors are re-connectible to different speeds and also to different voltages. There should be a diagram under the electrical box cover on the motor if that is the case.

OldRed is right. That tank is dangerous after all these years. Your best bet is to retire it and start over.
