Default Scrap Yard Saylor Beall Compressor

I have been looking for one of these for some time. It is a 705, the same one that powers my shop. Had I arrived at the scrap yard a bit earlier I would have avoided the carnage caused by the Volvo loader.

From what I can tell the flywheel, starter, air filter housing, pressure switch, belt guard and some plumbing was all destroyed. Still a good start for $80.

I was concerned about the conditions of the crankshaft so I checked for deformation. I discovered .016” at the end. I’m calling it tolerable.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

The 5HP 3PH motor works. I discovered a loose connecting rod Just like the one I currently run used to have.

I’m not sure what I will do here as I could go one of several ways:

1. Restore to original using same 3PH motor.

2. Restore with 1PH motor.

3. Separate assembly and store parts.

4. Mount pump and motor to a stand alone base and plumb into existing system.

I'd be most concerned about the interior condition of the tank(reciever)and rusting of the metal internally..is there a drain valve on the bottom of the tank? this would lead us to believe that it had regular attention to condensate drainoff..#1 reason for compressed air tank explosions..
