Default A little help from the gurus please

Just getting started with the vintage engines so my knowledge is still limited. That is why I am asking for help. I know this site is normally reserved for the gas/steam powered engines. But, I came acrossed a 1910 Bury air compressor that I can pick up for $150. It is all there and everything works. It is a dual flywheel piece and is ran by an engine via a belt. No engine included. It needs cleaned up and painted but I do not want to lay down the money as I am just getting started and have no engine yet. I would rather save the money for my first running engine, but I do not want to pass up a deal either. This thing has about 2.5 foot fly wheels so it is not a tiny piece. I was told it weighs about 1500lbs. Thanks for a great site full of expertise and I am looking forward to learning as much as I can.

Based on your location, you may also want to put a post on the Oilfield Engine forum. As others have said, if the price is right it could be good trading stock. At 1500 lbs., $150 is virtually scrap value.
