York OBA compressor question

I have a line on an a/c compressor from a 1963 Galaxie with a 390. The guy claims it is a york. Casting # 63 E 27.

What is the difference between this compressor and the Yorks of the mid-70's vintage?

Re: York OBA compressor question

Cant really answer your question , but by the looks of the one in the picture , it may be the short stroke version . If your doing the OBA thing , try and get the 10" stroke version . I`ll post the specs and how to tell them apart if you need them , just buzz me dude . Bye !

Re: York OBA compressor question

JeepDaddy, I don't know what the differences are, if there are any. The only thing you really need to know is the output of the compressor. Actually you don't even need to know that. If the compressor and clutch is functional it will work for an onboard air pump. Assuming that is what you need it for.

The most desirable pump is the largest york. If all you have is a casting # that is not enough to tell exactly what size it is. You will need either the York model # or you will need to pull the clutch and look at the shaft. Ask Jeepzilla to send you the ID info or go here http://www.onboardair.com/

Yorks are not that difficult to find for most people. Usually they are reletively inexpensive also. I paid $30 for mine.

That looks alot like one I have on a shelf that says it was made by Eaton and has a FoMoCo tag on it. Any idea what I really have? I thought it was a York when I garbage picked it.

Re: York OBA compressor question

that looks like a compact YORK to me.


too small to be seen, and too big to control, and treated like a walking bomb...
