A reed valve on the intake manifold would do it. Could salvage one from a cheap air compressor to test. I think new replacement reeds are pretty inexpensive from Granger. Stainless.

I don't know how much that reed box I've seen posted around retails for but I'm sure it could be built cheaply. Saw off most of the head of the compressor leaving the intake reed/s. Braze manifold connector tubing to both sides.

I wasn't born in Texas but I got
back here as soon as I could.
