So he took it off today and gave it to me after work. I went home and started gutting it. I got it gutted, it wasn't exactly easy lol. It rubs a tuny bit, so i'll be taking a deburring tool to the back side of the housing in hopes of getting rid of the rubbing noise. I hope it will work.

I decided to go radical and build a replacement using an idler pulley out of a junkyard. I used a piece of 3" pipe and two pieces of 3/8" pipe. I built it to the dimensions of the air pump. Then welded a piece of flat plate to mount the pulley assembly. I have it installed but not running yet. It looks like it all lines up ok. It took me several tries to get the correct belt length. Currently trying a 1010K6.
