piston size, stroke length and rpm

If you can get those 3 it'll be a cinch to figure out the displacement cfm. I suspect there are air flow gages out there if you need accurate readings at various pressures.

What would be usefull is the information on the motor such as hp, volts, rpm and amps.
Any numbers on the body of the compressor pump. There usually is a casting number or such to be able to identify the head.
Finally the outside diameter of the pulleys on the motor and compressor head.
