I’m getting a used Ingersoll Rand 5hp compressor with vertical 60 gallon tank and need to remove the motor and pump to transport and it’s really heavy. It has the cast iron pump and I’m wondering how difficult it will be to remove and reinstall? Thanks

I’ve never removed the pump on a compressor, but I have removed a motor before. Neither should be difficult to remove. The motor is usually just mounted on a bracket welded to the tank. Take off the belt and the bolts holding the motor to the bracket. The pump should be mounted similarly and usually just have a tube connected to it that goes from the pump to the tank. That tube will have to be disconnected from either the pump or the tank.

I concerned about lowering the heavy pump and getting it back up on top of the tank, the motor isn’t very heavy.

Got an engine hoist? I used mine to lift & move my 60 gal comp, so lifting off the pump should be easy.

I don’t have engine puller. I’m wondering if it could be lifted by 2 people or in general will it be too heavy?

Moved it with pump installed but it was a job. At least it’s done
