Default Ingersoll-Rand Spot Air 3-R-36

Looking for information on Ingersoll-Rand Spot Air 3-R-36 air compressor. My buddy Ray just got one in good shape he is trying to get running with 2 jackhammers and a grinder. Serial number 3R 4696. ID tag EL-2162. Ray is interested in spare parts, history, age, basically any knowledge or information. He spent a day on the phone and finally found someone at IR who had heard of it and who knew somebody who knew a retired IR employee. The great news is he now has an owners manual with maintenance schedule and everything. I am including a link to a U-Tube video of a 3-R-36 running (not Rays - yet) that you can copy and paste into your browser. ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyBf4PaZ6Mc
It is really cool. Thanks in advance for any help, Al.
