Default Parts for CH 2610 Compressor unavailable

Hi all,
Am refurbishing the above captioned Campbell Hausfeld compressor. Unfortunately the compressor fell off the dolly while I was moving it and some plastic parts are broken, namely the shroud cover and the blower wheel. These parts are listed as "No Longer Available" Whats a guy to do? Shame to throw away a perfectly fine compressor for the sake of a few plastic parts. Are similar brand parts interchangeable, or does someone know of a source for "no longer available" parts?
The part numbers are BG 2073 and BG 207200AV.
The main problem tho is the blower fan shattered, and there is no identification on the broken parts except "TecAir". I can manage without the guards, but need a new fan wheel. I have included photos of the damaged parts, and would appreciate any help.
Thanks.

Its hard to tell I would consider mounting the rest of the fan to an aluminum plate, also try to balance it.

Looks a lot like the squirrel cage fan from a automotive heater

Maybe here after a little measuring. Some are dirt cheap some are pricey. I suspect that one will be a cheap one. https://www.zoro.com/kbmt/blower-wheels-by-size/

Thanks whitetrash,
I'm almost pulling my hair out with this....I can't believe in this day and age a $2000 compressor is useless because of a $10 part, even if it is 20 years old......and not even available from CHINA!!!!!
I've messaged them....we'll see!!!
Thanks

Welcome Trooper,

I am not able to find an overall view of this compressor. Is it belt drive from motor to compressor or one of the oilless ones? No matter really, the fan just moves air across the pump to help cool it off.

You could use a muffin fan from a computer type of thing or most anything to move air across the unit while running.

Here is a video from Mr Carlson's lab about how he handled his air compressor needing some attention.

Here is a link to our picture posting if you have not seen it.

Glad you stopped in and please enjoy your visits.

Scott

Hi Scott,
It's belt drive....here's the compressor schematic. Just found some partial numbers on the parts of the blower, and have contacted the manufacturer to see if they can source the specs from their files. They make automotive blower wheels that look very similar, just don't know how to work out the required CFM of air movement that the pump needs to stay cool and thereby choose the right one.
Thanks

PS. Part is #35 in diagram
