Re: Onboard air
IT can be made to work but like you said u need a seperate oiler. For the price of the oiler you could get a York with a clutch. The only thing i still have to do is make a filter for the intake and locate 3x3 angle iron for the brackets. I have a bunch of old brackets from the drivers side of the motor in my garage cause Rep-T and I just both converted to saginaw pumps so i can get the pattern from those but TRY finding 3x3 angle iron. I have a filter in mind for now , fuel filter clamped on the stock york feed line. It'll work for now. I also have a filter inline with the compressor before the pressure switch, check valve, gauge, and saftey valve. The whole system would have cost me about $100 if i didn't buy the clutch for the serp belt. The only problem i had was Grainger doesn't sell to the public and they require 2 forms of bussiness ID top buy their stuff. I had to make up a fake company and go the website and buy the stuff.

YOu need two fomrs of business id to buy from grainger. Never hassled me before but i have been ordering parts through my father who has had a business account with them for 20 years. Thats good to know though. They send me the catalog so its all good.

It's all good as long as they recognize you as a bussiness customer. There's a disclaimer on theier site somewhere that says just because you have the catalog doesn't mean you can buy from us.

Re: Onboard air
I got the check valve and the pressure switch. Neither of these are needed unless you are running a tank. I got a 5 gallon tank in the bed of the truck. If you plan on doing an OBA setup plan on running back and forth to a plumbing supply shop or Home Depot about 650 times. I bought a buttload of fittings, nipples, reducer couplings and reducer bushings on the first trip so i only went back a few times. I bought a pressure cut off switch with the unloader valve and the check valve with the unloader valve so the compressor starts easier. If you are only using the system to fill tires and are only using a hose you can get away REAL cheap. I got a filter from Sears on sale for $20 and 2 25' air hoses for $10 each. One runs between the manifold and the tank and on stays in a bag with my impact lug wrench. Once i get the brackets i'll post pics on my superford site(Oh yeah this means i'll have to figure that site out too [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) There were a few good links on the internet. I didn't save any of them though. Sorry
