I was at a garage sale and picked up a 2 stage air compressor pump for $35. It says Chinook and Made in italy on it. Image search looks like it's a K30 series. It's missing the air filter and possibly other things. Where would the model number be? I don't see it on covers on either end of the crankshaft. Any thoughts on where else to look?
The seller said that he got it from a local distillery that had worn it out, reconditioned it, and never reinstalled it. He tried to sell me a half hp electric motor to power it.

A 1/2HP motor to drive a 2 stage pump?

He didn't understand what a 2 stage pump was until I explained it to him.

According to the crankcase, it's K22-K28. I suppose depending on the jug that gets bolted on.
