how do i determine the pulley diameters?

What would the pulley diameters for a reciprocating compressor driven by a 28 kW two-cylinder diesel engine. The engine speed id 1500 rpm and the compressor speed id 950 rpm. The proposed distance between the engine and compressor shaft centres is approximately 1.5 m. The system is expected to be used for less than 10 hours per day.
Any help would be appreciated.

RE: how do i determine the pulley diameters?

Whattype of belt are you planning to use? Once you know what type of belt you are using, you can find lots of information in drive design manuals that are issued by the belt manufacturers
