gtx468, You are having trouble identifying your unit because Devilbiss in their infinite wisdom decided to issue a different compressor number for every different setup that they had. Your setup is clearly the PL-501, however your compressor is not a PL-501. It looks like a model 220 or 230 compressor to me, which is a single stage compressor, 100 to 120psi maximum pressure, 300 to 900rpm operating range.

I finally found a true expert on all things air compressors. His name is Troy Cross. He is rebuilding a DeVilbiss 432 for me. You may contact him at Compressor Parts & Equipment, in Oklahoma City. His business number is 405 635 1814. An absolute wealth of information and knows where to find parts for the old stuff, like all my stuff... King of Obsolete.
