After all this time and my Mom passed away, my siblings decided to give it to me. I knew the belt had come off, but after taking off the cover, to my amazement, I found out what all the knocking was about, the shaft end where the pulley rides, must have cracked or something, and twisted off.

I am wondering now if I can come up with another shaft to replace that one with? Otherwise it turns over just fine.

A few insignificant details may be helpful..... make, model, size, type, oil-free, electric, ??????

Just take it to the local scrap yard and put the money from the scrap towards a good pancake unit. You can get the Porter Cable Pancake from Lowe's, for $100.00.

If the pulley wheel shaft snapped off of the compressor--the head needs a new crank shaft---and bearings for the piston(s)--

I think it's junk---pull off the motor and scrap the rest.

Sorry - unless you got a boatload of sentimental value in it, monetarily it doesn't make much sense to try and fix. Crankshaft is no longer available according to this:

That compressor does not have a pressure unloader system, so it's either geared down pretty good (slow fill up), or the pressure can't go very high.

Not withstanding, compressors are pretty cheap these days. might be able to get 20 or 30 bucks at a garage sale for it.
