Hey guys I picked up the compressor for free what is the best way to test to see if it's a usable pump? and how do I determine what motor I would need to run it?

Fixitguy,

You would need to figure out what the model number is and the running pump RPM range. There are no numbers anywhere? does the pump turn by hand 360 degrees? what is the diameter of the pump pulley?

it might be cheaper to just buy another pump...
unless you have lots of time!
if the bearings are damaged due to some one with a hammer smacking the drive pulley fan assy to get it in this state...

look at northern tool for a whole replacement..
also as others will chime in
the tank needs inspection..
think water over time rusting the inside of the tank.

most of the time you are looking at a 5 hp at 1800 rpm motor
rated for air compressor use.
you also will need a magnetic start box for safety.
northern also has those too.
