Do your best to inspect the inside of the tank for rust. Don't want to launch your compressor though the roof. Double check how the motor is wired, 240 v 120. Might put a new belt on the list. Make sure the cut off switch cuts it off.

Excellent find. Kelloggs are beasts. Slow and quiet. I regret selling my last one. A new pressure relief valve is also a good idea.

Yup ... I've got an old 1956 Kellogg compressor in my garage. It has a 1725 RPM motor so it runs at about half the speed of many other compressors that have 3450 RPM motors. Mine has been very reliable and trouble free although I did have to put some new valves in the head about 15 years ago. If I remember correctly, I purchased the head overhaul kit from http://www.aircompeq.com/kakits.html
