How much air does a York 6cuin compressor put out?

I got the compressor for free, but it's the smallest of the three displacements. I'm in the middle of doing the OBA install (whew, found all the factory brackets!), anyone else use this smaller compressor and if so what kind of volume did it put out?

Get it on and running. It will not be that bad. Most compressors (A/C) don't put out more than that and alot of people use them. You can always upgrade later when you find the "big boy".
It will work just fine.
(BTW most people really don't know what CFM they really have and are just happy having OBA. It will still kick the crap out of most other types and the electrical ones) [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

IM not good at math, but its probably 6 Cubic inches or air per revolution of the compressor right?

the spec might be found at onboardair.com

they have the downloadable manuals and stuff including specs, RPM maximums and such.

it will be plenty though!

Re: How much air does a York 6cuin compressor put out?

I run a 10 ci and it puts out plenty of air. I suppect a 6 ci would put out about 70 to 80 % of the aie a 10 ci will. This is because they all use the same valves. So the valves will be more effective leading to greater volumetric eff. of the unit. As allready said go ahead and install it, changeing these is easy once the initial install is done.

If you are going to be using a tank with your OBA set up then I bet you won't even notice. That York will put out some serious air. couple it with a hand throttle and you will be loving life. Even the smalles york will kick other compressors out of the water. Go to www.onboardair.com there is lots of info there.
