Hi everyone

My dad has had this compressor laying around in the garage and me being into painting and bodywork on cars im wanting to use it.
I just don't know much about it.

Im hoping someone here will help me in identifying this compressor.

My dad says his uncle got it from a auto-body company that went out of business and that it can take a 7.5 hp motor. Im trying to find out how much cfm and stuff it has.

Anyone know where I can go to identify a compressor.

Here are some pics.







In that pic the numbers are 0460





That one says 3 F



Then the last one says 7-92 G.

Does anyone have a rough idea of where I can go to find the specifics on this baby?
Im sorry if this is stupid to post on this forum but it never hurts to ask.

I can't give you any specific details but, with that large drive pulley/fan, it looks to be an industrial grade unit. If your dad was right about 7 HP, it would likely be in the neighborhood of 20 CFM
and would last a long time. My best guess would be that it would run at least one DA all day long.
