My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

I finished this a few days ago and must say I`m mighty impressed so far with the output of the system . I`m kind of posting these to get your opinions , good or bad . I believe it good to run these things buy a bunch of eyeballs[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] .
The pump is a 10" Stroke York and the Air tank is
from a Ford highway rig and came with the mounting
brackets . Everything else I got from a surplus place
in town . One airline goes to the front bumper , a spare
female on the manifold under hood and one also going to the rear bumper . I also have 3 additional outlets on the
air tank as of yet , un-used . The system shuts off at
120 PSI and has 20 PSI differential . Anything you see that dont look right or needs to be addressed ? Hope the pics are ok . The close up of the back of the manifold is to show how I built the brackets to hold the manifold in place . They bolt to the top of the York .

Re: My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

that engine compartment looks sweet!

has it ever even been cranked? hehe

I cant tell from teh photo and it may not be a problem for you, but ive heard runner hose at the output of a york has a hard time staying put it gets so hot, If youve already been running it its probably not an issue!

looks great, mine wont turn out near that well im sure!

Re: My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

Nice job, it looks good to me, really clean installation. Its a little hard to tell from the last pic, but will the tank be in harms way, might want to fab up a cheap 3/16" skid plate to protect it or something? But I think it looks good.

Re: My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

Wow, That looks great, does it run air tools well? Great job integrating, looks like a factory option!

Ozark
hehe [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I knew someone would say that ( ever been turned over ?) . Ya lots ( honest !) Now you have to remember I just finished the motor and refurbing the tub so she only has a couple thousand miles on it . I wheel it good but I also power wash it down after a good mud run . It just makes it so much easier to work on it if it`s all clean . Thats my story and I`m stickin to it [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

KerryP
I figure if I smash that tank there , my transfercase skid is a gonner too . Skidplate sits lower than the tank [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
That air tank is really heavy gauge .

CJ7JeepOffRoad
Yup ,it sure does run tools well , I havent been able to shut her down even with my air sander[yet] . Had Jeepie runnin about 1600 RPM or so and couldnt starve it . Really impressed so far .

Re: My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

actually Zilla,

if a rear U joint craps out on ya, your gonn ahurt that tank!

build a cover for it, 1/8 would even work, leave a little gap and shoot some expandable foam in there, then you can use it as a jacking point!

few thousand miles my arse! haha

Re: My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

I would tend to agree with Ozark on the tank. The other thing I would comment on is the position of the drain valve. It would be easy to find something snag on that and you'd be SOL on the trail.

I would also recommend some high-temp hose for that output. Maybe try some of that Earl's braided stainless stuff?

Re: My On Board Air Setup *PICS*

Looks great! What a clean motor, wow! I might be a little worried about that drain on the tank. You could make a skid plate for the tank or just weld up a little ramping system with a piece of pipe around the drain and a couple pieces of bar stock up and over the drain. Great job!
