Re: on board air how big a tank

as big as possible... i was looking around under my truck and there's room for 2 pretty good sized tanks on either side of the driveshaft. a heavy truck wrecking yard would have lots of different sized tanks that they'd probably let go cheap.

Re: on board air how big a tank

a 2.5 to 3 gallon is a nice size to fit, and fill tires decent, i know a york can keep up with a 3 gallon tank filling tires.....

Re: on board air how big a tank

I have 2 tanks under my tool box. They fit perfectly. They are about 2.5 feet long and about 7 inches tall. I think that total it is about 12 gallons. My York does fine and I can use an impact wrench with ease. You may want to look into getting a hand throttle to boost the air output if you have a York.

3 Gal or so.

Might want to check out ebay. I plan on using an old diving tank (aluminum) roughly 2' x 7". They have been going for 30-60 dollars used. Will handle way more pressure than you could ever put into it.
