On Board Air

Hey so im working on my A/C to OBA set up and im having troubles finding a AC compressor, I was just wondering what other AC compressors can I use? Making my own mount wont be hard.

Re: On Board Air

If your making your own mount then you could use just about anything you want!
Having said that I do recommend an "oil" type compressor.

Re: On Board Air

So I could run any A/C Compressor that works with our serpentine belt? But is there any other stock Compressors that work better then others? I was also planning on running a Tool Oiler on the intake line and a water / oil separator on the out put line to the tank.

If you go with a York compressor you will not need an inline oiler and if you make your own brackets it will be fairly easy. You can get a pulley for the alternator that has serpentine to drive the alternator and a v-groove for a belt to drive the compressor. That way you save money on an expensive serpentine drive clutch for the York. The pulley can be bought from Kilby Enterprises.

Re: On Board Air

Sorry for the high jack but was wondering what you guys would think is the best viair compresser for a tank just under 3 gallons the 400C with 2.54 cfm flow vs the 450C at 1.66 cfm. I would like to be able to run an impact gun thanks.

Re: On Board Air

If you want to run an impact i would go CO2, My 10 gallon Ultimate Air with high flow reg. does just fine but your hands will get cold.
