Not sure that 2 HP would be enough. It's a preety good sized compressor. Not set up for 3 phase anyway. Thanks.

If you could get something in the 3 to 5 horse single phase range, that would be great. It has a chineese 3 HP motor on it now and it works preety hard when it gets up to preasure and even harder in the winter.

Whats the RPM? Can you change the size of the pulley? I take it it's a belt drive.

There should be a frame number on the nameplate, too. I take it it's 110v or is it 220V? I may have something kicking around in the motor lab, but I want be able to look for at least a week when I get back to work.
