Ok Guys, I almost have it done. Adding a York air compressor to my 84 CJ was a lot easier than I thought it would be. No custom brackets. On 82 to 86 CJ with the serpintine belt, the bracket is already there. Just take the idler pully and bracket off that is above the altinator and the York bolts right up. In my case, the York suction was on the left side, meaning I could not lay it on its side. However, because I have the larger spark plugs wires, I really did not have enough room...so its standing up...but I still have plenty of room.
The only hard part is finding a serpentine clutch and pully. The job was actually easy....I got it from Kilby Enterprises out of Burbank CA (www.onboardair.com
). Check out their web site...lots of good info. Ask for Brad, the guy is a straight talker...and willing to help. He plans to keep them in stock.
I made my air tanks out of schedule 40 pipe. I figure they can handle about 800 PSI or better....and still get bounced off rocks. If you look at the picture you can see that they are staggered just a little. There is lots of room between the transfer case and rear axle...but the stagger is in there to leave more room up front on the inside tank for the air fittings.
Speaking of air fittings...thats the last part...I am hopeing to do that this weekend before I have to fly off to Iuka MS for a few days. So far, Home Depot and Granger have been a great source of parts.
