i think you d need to be able to mount a pulley onto the motor shaft somehow. i think you could get a pulley with a set screw in it. iirc, compressor pumps have specific rpm s they have to run so youd have to match up the pulleys to achieve that rpm. you might need to buy a motor,too.if that motor is run on 110 its not 6 hp.

No it’s definitely not 6HP. I don’t think that I ever said it was, but I believe that it is 3HP, maybe smaller.

Do you know how i could go about determining the correct pully size for the motor pully? If the shaft doesn’t have a spot for a key, would a simple pully with a set screw be enough to hold it down?
