Default Help with Curtis Two Stage Air Compressor

I have a Curtis air compressor that went down on me today. I cannot find any data plate that tells me a model or size. I need to measure the stroke and bore yet. Any advice would be aw some. Also all the part numbers that I find on this start with TF if that helps. Thanks

What "went down"? Did the motor die, or does it still pump, just not build pressure?
