I have a compressor with the following specs:
"Compressor, Air, 4 Stage
Hydraulic Motor Driven
Pressure – 3000psi
Capacity – 2.4 SCFM
P/N 891406Hydraulic Motor Requirements
Pressure – 2500 PSI
Flow – 1.6 GPM
Serial No. 811011
Walter Kidde & Co., Inc.
The setup was mounted as seen in this pic: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/TriggaNometry/IMGP0282.jpg
It appears that the compressor should have been driven by a hydraulic motor rather than a pulley and turned by the gas engine.
The spline on the compressor shaft (that has a pulley on it) has completely worn and now looks like this: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/TriggaNometry/MVC-009F.jpg
Anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do? Should I just get a new shaft/spline made? Should I attach it as it was or now use a hydraulic motor to drive it while also using the gas engine? I have no idea what to do because I am not trained in any of this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
