I want to know the size of the compressor

.To give you a rough idea.
Each one horsepower of motor, will give about 4 cubic feet per minute.
Without the make & model of your compressor or motor type & size I can't be more spacific I'm afraid.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

Installed new breaker just for the compressor and it still only runs for a second or two and kicks breaker

You need to find out how much amperage the compressor pulls and make sure the wiring and breaker are sized correctly.
If they are sized correctly then you likely have an issue with the motor or the compressor itself causing the breaker to operate.

I believe that the motor starter circuit on my Ingersoll Rand 2475 5 hp 80 gallon compressor is incorrect. It's a 30 amp single phase compressor

You should not be pulling over 30 amps. If you are you may have low voltage, incorrect wire size or to long of a run for wire size. I would use a hand held meter and check the amps at full load.

Connecting the compressor to a tank

You left that question rather vague. Are you asking what material? or What size? I normally would run one size larger pipe size than the outlet on the tank, unless the distance is great. You would connect to the tank outlet which is usually 1/2 way up the side of the tank. Use only black iron or copper pipe, plastic pipe is not strong enough for compressed air. There is some plasic tubing rated for air, but that looks sloppy and isn't inexpensive eitehr. Also put a "FRL" between the compressor and piping (FRL=filter regulator lubricator).

Wire size

I used to know all this stuff, the hardware store has a gauge guide to show you the correct size, i would guess that 8 would be ok, 10 would probably do it, hope this is right.

Having changed motors on this compressor, I think we have the sheave size incorrect. Can you tell me what the origial motor sheave size was

What model and size is the compressor, one thing to check that is easily overlooked when changing the motor is check the rpm of the old motor and the new one, they should be the same! I have seen people replace a 1800 rpm motor with a 3600 rpm motor and not catch it when they made the change, in that application the motor would overload as it is trying to do twice the work with the same size sheave.
