I have acquired an air compressor from Planters Peanuts, I believe it was made i the late 70's

It had a 3 ph 5 hp motor on it below are the specs.

HP 5                     Ph 3                       Hz 60Frame 184T           Volts 230/460          Amps 14.8/7.4
TypeL
Design B               Code MSF 1.0
Cont Rating           75 deg C rise          RPM 1730




My replacement motor specifications:

My questions are:

1. Is the Baldor motor a sufficient replacement?
2. Will I need a magnetic starter for the single phase motor?
3. I am thinking that 10 gauge power wire will be sufficient, (the compressor is only 10 feet from the breaker box)
4. I need some diagrams on how to wire the magnetic starter and the pressure switch together.
5. Can I use the double 30 amp breaker as an on/off switch for the compressor?
6. Is a double 30 amp breaker too big? (the reason I ask is because thats what I had the old compressor in the garage hooked to, I would just unplug the compressor and plug in my 220 volt 170 amp welder to the double 30 amp breaker)
