Hi, it’s a Worthington 160, (821) year unk. 4 cal gas, according to the compressor manual it says IHC 200. But there is no info on the engine in the compressor manual.

Call Roger at Worthington: 800-892-6189. Give him your air compressor model, type, and serial number if you have it.

Worthington sold their air compressor division in 1981 to Atlas-Copco but still have some access to older manuals and a few repair parts. I have a 250cfm unit with a B-427 Continental gasoline engine I use often and he was a great help to me upon startup by furnishing a manual.

Here is mine. I call him "Junior":

Thanks for all the replies, I did talk to Roger and he sent me copies of the manuals. Devons Tractor parts was able to give me NAPA numbers so was able to get tune up parts. Also found the Delco Remy numbers on the distributor. 

Thanks again

Don G.
