Need help in repairing a diesel engine (V8 71) 1979 GM

Hi, We need to find either an air compressor or a kit to rebuild one for our 1979 GM V8 71 diesel engine.  Also we need a rebuild kit or another alternator for this motor.  Do any of you have an idea of who we could contact about these?  Sure would appreciate your help.  Thanks and God Bless, Larry & Gaylo Howard

Thanks, Dave, but we are not in Ohio.  I am a Buckeye, but we now live in Hillsboro, New Mexico.  Only get back to Ohio for family visits now and then.  Appreciate the reply, God Bless, Larry & Gaylo Howard

Thanks, Jimco.  Not sure when we will be in Ohio again but will check them out online.  By the way I am a Buckeye myself!  Born and raised outside Kenton Ohio.  Appreciate the info.  Take care and God Bless!

HELP!  We received an email from someone here on goodolervs and have 'lost' the email!  He wanted a picture of the air compressor we need and I wanted to answer him, but do not know who it was.  Sorry.  If you read this, please email us again. 

I am enclosing the picture of the air compressor (and one of the alternator).  The air compressor numbers are: (TF600) 290609  M8 01  and here are the pictures:
