Just brought home a used Ingersoll Rand Model RA5E6VA 60 gallon, 5 horse, 220 volt, single phase, vertical air compressor. Was given to me by a friend of a friend. Built in 1987. Is missing the pulley that fits on the motor and the belt, along with the front half of the plastic guard that fits over the belt. Is on very nice shape. Did not get home in time to see if the parts are available at Ingersoll Rand. Will try and call them on Monday.
If the parts are not available was wondering if anyone has one of these and knows the part numbers of the motor pulley, belt and the front of the belt guard. If not does anyone know the size of the motor pulley and the belt?
Anything that I need to know and/or do before I get it running. It's been 3 years since it was used. I noticed it has a oil dip stick tube....have not pulled it out yet. What type of maintaince does this kind of a compressor need to keep running right? Sorry for all the questions but want to make sure I lean everything I need to know before I use it.

Thanks

Hello!
Would definately check/change the oil.
Lube motor if possible.
Make sure your pressure relief valve works.
Sounds like you've got a nice machine. Just got an old 3HP horizontal from the 50's. Sweet.

I did get a hold of a tech at the Ingersoll Rand Air Support Center and he e-mailed me a diagram and parts list of the system. All I need now is try and get a copy of the owners manual...........to find out the do's & don'ts of owning and using a large air compressor.......well large to me anyway.........LOL

Some time ago I needed my air compressor and then I saw that it was not working any more. A friend of mine told me I should use a power rental service. So I decided to rent one because I really needed it and did not have enough money to buy a new one. This was great because it was cheap and worked perfectly. I can really recommend such services.

It's good, that you get something good.
Before purchasing first decide what all tools you are planing to use, what sorts of power or you can say electrical power do you have in your shop, and the important thing is that why you need or taking this used one......

Greg,

Did you find the drive pulley? if you know the pump model you can get the RPM for the pump [email protected] HP of motor and with the electric motor HP and speed it is easy to calculate the drive size sheave, I can help if you need it.

rod bushing

timithme,

Go to a motor rebuilder and ask them give you the name of the rod rebuilder that they use or look on the internet, replacing a rod sleave bushing is very common in the engine rebuild business

Hi, were you able to find the connecting rod you were looking for, i am in the same position, i got a rand4000 60gal 5hp i think from 1989 in really good shape but one the piston connecting rod is broken and can't find it anywhere.
I went to ingersoll rand and they don't have replacement parts.
Thanks
