onboard air question

I know there have been a million threads on this but I was wondering if you can keep your factory a/c and have onboard air? If so how hard would it be?

Re: onboard air question

Yep you can keep what you have. Your Sanden will produce as much air as a York and it is far lighter and smaller. IMO, a York would be one of the least desirable compressors to use.

Email me if you want me to send you some info on using the Sanden compressor and how to plumb the hoses.

Re: onboard air question

sorry should have phrase that better....didnt have my coffee just yet. What I meant was can you have both onboard air and a/c or do I have to decide one or the other? It's hot as hell in Miami, Fl and living without a/c is tough...but having onboard air would be sweet. Thanx again!

Re: onboard air question

I believe that Brad Kilby makes a bracket which adds the York compressor right next to your existing compressor on the YJ. Makes it possible to have A/C and compressed air. Check http://www.onboardair.com for more info.

Re: onboard air question

why not just get an electric if you want to keep your a/c?

Re: onboard air question

with the electric compressors you get what you pay for. check the "ready air" compressors. from what i have read they make a good product.

Re: onboard air question

Yep, Brad Kilby makes brackets that will allow you to mount another compressor along with your AC.

Like someone else mentioned, he has brackets to mont Yorks but recently he was working on brackets that would allow you to mount a Sanden.

Re: onboard air question

Yep,the electric air compressors are slow, it takes me about 20 minutes air backup.

Happy Trails

Re: onboard air question

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] We have looked at this possibility over and over....having air conditioning AND on-board air on the same engine.....[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] The easiest way to do it would be set up the York on the engine for your On-Board Air, and then satellite-drive the Sanden off the second pulley of the York. The Sanden will cling to the side of the Yorkie real nice with some simple brackets. The York spins as an idler when you aren't pumping up those big tires for everybody, and a 10 cubic inch York will get some air out there if you flip your hi-idle solenoid on. I'm a real fan of Yorks, having used lots of them on equipment just for auxillary air.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] You can get a 10 inch York from Acemek right near you in NC.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]I'm pretty sure he had one left over from his latest Jeep project.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]You could have him send it to you FED EX, that way if it got stolen you would know who has it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
