Default American Jenbach Diesel Compressor

I don't know if this is the proper place but here goes. We aquired this compressor to sandblast our toys but it needs some help before we get going. Tried to look on the internet for information but apparently this company is no longer. We need a starter and operating manual.
Anyone have any knowledge about this unit? Or know where I can obtain information?

Thanks
Dave

I have been using one of these wonderful compressors, a water-cooled JW-78, for the last 25 years after completely rebuilding it. I have both the operating and service manuals (partly in German) and can possibly help you. The electric starter is a standard Bosch unit. The hand crank would be easy to make. They were last imported into the U.S. in 1978, ceasing when the OSHA (?) reduced noise regulations went into effect.

Is yours an air-cooled or a water-cooled model? Single or twin-cylinder? Does it have a "Burco" (Burlinton Equipment Co.) tag on it?

Email me.

Saw one of these in the sale area at Portland on our 2003 trip:

I managed to start my jenbach.
The hammer and drill work perfectly
but the electric system does not work . I have to jumpstart and that is a bit clumsy. see foto .
still working on it to clean and ill give it a nice yellow paint .
the tag shows it is made for the italian market .
it must have been a beautifull tool in the sixties .
I really can help some advice to rebuild the electric system.
perhaps someone has a workshopmanual i can copy ?
does anyone know how much air it produces?
gr willem.

Found the problem . it was the solenoid that did not make contakt
it was not easy but now all functions.
I just have to pull the button and the beast comes to live.
My jenbach ofcourse is not an american jenbach the type number is nearly the same .
