questions about on-board air

I just finnished converting my a.c. pump into on-board air, fun project. I have a air filter and an automatic oiler on the intake side of the pump, on the outtake I have nother but hose. My question is then, do I need to put an air regulator valve in the outtake side of the pump? Those hoses are rated pretty high put I would hate to have something explode. Also do you guys run an outtake filter to get rid of any oil that may come out of the pump? Thanks in advance.

p.s. I hopped the fence from the Toyota forum, I thought you guys would have a better handle on my questions.

Re: questions about on-board air

I would put a filter and regulator on the output side of the compressor. You should also be sure you have a safety valve located somewhere on the pressure side of the system. I have a tank and automatic pressure switch on my system. Let me know if you have any questions, I have links to several on-board air sites.

questions about on-board air

You weren't kidding when you said you had a lot of links to on-board air systems[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. So you do recommend having a safety valve on the outtake, never would have thought to have one but I've never done this before either. One last question do you have any idea as to the c.f.m. and the p.s.i for a rotary style a.c. pump? Thanks for the help, I read all the reports on your webpage.
