Parts for coleman are available at www.mastertoolrepair.com your compressor is listed as L0502710. If however you like to tinker, you can make a pretty good reed valve out of aluminum can material or other (any ideas?). It is fairly easy to cut, does not last as long as factory stainless steel, but for short term, why not? Good Luck

I can't blame you for askig, but here's my response. 5 HP is 3750 running watts. or about 35 amps at 110 volts and it would take somewhere around 50 amps to start it provided the motor could even be wired for 110 which I don't believe it can and for that exact reason. I'm sorry, but it's just not practical.

SOURCE: Electric Motor running slow
Century / Magnetek motors are used on many compressors but usually is an upgrade to have the option to easily switch from 110 to 220. Dewalt, Rol Air, Jenny, Emglo and others are considered high end compressors and come with switch for selecting voltage. One still must change the cord if selecting 220v setting. One thing in common is that 115v motors are never more than 2-3 HP because the amp draw for anything over 2hp is likely higher than 20 amps and would trip most common outlet breakers. You noted that your motor sticker lists 6.5 hp at 15 amp 220v so it could not work with 110v because it would draw over 30 amps and just not be practical. Magnetek motors are very good quality and most always state on sticker 110/220v and show wiring diagram for proper connection. Your compressor was most likely built to be stationary and be hardwired into an outlet/switchbox with heavy duty wiring or special cord to run such a high hp motor. You made a great buy however, because the motor alone lists for several hundered dollars alone. You could replace the motor with a 110v but you would loose the fast performance / recovery of that 6.5 hp motor. Like replacing a v8 engine with a 4 cyl. but expect to pull same load, not likely. Good luck with your purchase, and post again if you have other question.

Testimonial: "Thank you, I was starting to think so too.Just don't have the knowledge to say "your right".At this time it'd be easier to change motors. Thank you again. J"
