Default Gilbert and Barker Compressor

Hi all.

i realize this is not a military item but Im hoping the collective knowledge here might be able to help.

Ive got an older 2 stage compressor in my shop. However its been making a knocking noise for a while. It still gets up to pressure of about 160-170 psi with out problems. Today I decided to take it apart and see what was making the noise.

I found that there was some end-play in the crankshaft, but the biggest issue was the connecting rod insert bearing on the crankshaft is shot. It should be easy enough to replace and fix however trying to find anything on these compressors is proving problematic.

The compressor is a Gilbert & Barker GPH B2 model, serial # 448.

Anyone have any ideas on how I could fix this old compressor up?
