Default Info on Schramm aircompressor

Bringing this Schramm aircompressor back to Sweden.
Would be nice to have some sales litterature and a correct colour code for it.
Its in pretty rough shape but all the important pieces seems to be there.

The ones we had, the engine and everything under the hood was gold. The tin was red.

As far as i know they are still in business building drill rigs. They were outside Philadelphia i think around Conshohocken

Might be under the name PeCo or PennCo something close to that.

The one i would like to have is the crawler dozer / aircompressor with a flathead ford motor

The tin on this one shows signs of blue...not sure how many coats been put on during the years though.
The place i bought this from still has the big brother in use...try that with a modern one...

They are in West Chester,Pa. Contact Richard Schramm he gave me a pile of
service and parts manuals 15 years ago. I took out a few I needed and sent the
rest to Chester County Historical Society in West Chester. A few years later
Richard didn't like the way they were handling inquireries and I think he has
them now. G.M.

If you PM me your info I can email you a pdf scan of an operator/parts manual. I have two of them. One was in the same enclosure the engine was gold. Tin work did seem to be red. Also have a floor mounted one that has no tin that was green.
