Austin... TX? Nope. Minnesota!
I have an Industrial Air 80 gallon 155 psi stationary vertical compressor with a 3 cylinder pump. http://www.industrialairusa.com/prod...A4708065&cat=3 A couple weeks ago, it began screeching at me in protest, and I shut it off. Today, I checked, and cylinder 3's piston is scored to hell around the rings (I think it was like that when I bought it last year, used, due to overwork, as it was undersized for their application).

Anyway, I looked into pricing for a new piston and new rings, along with the gaskets, and it will come close to $150 for the parts. Just for shits and giggles, I checked to see the price for the entire compressor head... And it under $300 + freight (another $70).

So who has the hookup on these parts? I need a Dayleap E106023. Industrial Air's part number is 040-0348 This is the one with metal fill, drain, and brass sight glass, not the cheaper plastic fill, drain, and sightglass versions out there.
 
Hard to believe a three cylinder is only 370 delivered. How are the other cylinders and valves?

Nope. It's actually $398 + tax and $70 freight. The $370 price is for a cheaper version with a plastic fill plug, plastic drain plug, and plastic sight glass.

The others look fine, but if I'm going into it for nearly half the price of total replacement, a complete new pump would bring peace of mind.

Still pretty cheap for a pump. What's the CFM?

I think you'd be right to go for a new pump instead of gambling that the other cyls are going to die or some other failure is around the corner. Might be able to pull the small, shippable parts off the old one and throw them on ebay and recoup some of the cost. Might be someone in your boat out there looking for them.
 
run it until it actually shits out
if it's already blowing all the oil out the crankcase seals then just bypass the bad cylinder (you say 3rd, so I assume HP) and back down the high pressure cutoff to where it doesn't draw more than the motor's FLA

I consider that, but I plan on painting a couple of high roof Sprinter vans this coming summer and I am not sure how well it would keep up with the spray rigs at 60% capacity.
 
bonus points to putting it off longer
big three phase motherfuckers come up for a couple hundred bucks pretty regularly, and oddly enough the tanks sell for more than the whole compressor

I don't have 3-ph power.

This. Nobody touches them at auctions and FB/CL because they don't have 3p. Especially the 5hp and smaller ones, you can get a brand new motor on ebay for $3-400 and have an industrial compressor for 1/2 of what a new shitty consumer grade one would cost.

I have a 4 cylinder Emglo that I bought on CL for under $200 many years ago. It had an undersides 3hp single phase motor on it that eventually let out the smoke. I bought the biggest 5hp Baldor I could find on ebay for around $350 and also spent a couple hundred bucks on new valves and gaskets for it. Basically $700 for a $2500 compressor that should outlive me.
 
OP spent 310 and in a couple of hours labor will have a working compressor with new pump. Seems a lot cheaper and easier than all the suggestions to buy unknown junk and cobble something together that than may need a rebuild bringing him back to square one

This.

And, my compressor's motor has already been upgraded in the past. Not by much, but it was a 4.7 from the factory, and it has a 5 or a 5.5 on there now (I don't remember which one). Due to the prior use and reason for selling (was purchased for a small fleet's heavy truck/trailer repair facility but found to be way undersized), I am sure the third cylinder was overheated many times due to poor airflow in that direction and it smoked the original motor. Now that it has the upgraded motor and will have a new pump, it will be a $1900 compressor that I will have a total of less than $1000 in that will likely outlast me and my uses in my home shop.
