Where Can I Get These Fittings? Help

Hey Guys,

I am getting ready to mount my York and i am looking for fitting similar to the ones shown at: http://users.supernet.com/luv2jeep/on-board.html(the orange ones on top of the compressor) Anyone have any idea where to get there?? The email address on the page does not work.

Thanks For Any Help

Re: Where Can I Get These Fittings? Help

I'm not sure where those fittings came from. If you have the factory hoses, you can cut off the hose and use a 1/2" compression fitting over the metal part of the hose. For my setup I used brass fittings with Teflon tape on the compression ferrules. You can see pics on my website:

I also have links to some other York installs.

those orange fittings and bracket came in a kit that used to be sold for cj and yj's.. i dont believe the guy makes them anymore..
Therold Enterprises i think was the name of the company.

those type brackets also came on some aftermarket AC conversion kits from the early 70s and up.

I beleive they require the appropriate compressor head, since ive got 2 complete compressors side by side, one with those fittings and one with normal FSJ fittings, the mounting point is different.

Those fittings, and the entire kit for that matter, can be had at www.onboardair.com. Brad Kilby bought out Therold and is continuing to produce.

Re: Where Can I Get These Fittings? Help

I wouldn't advise it b/c that compressor should pull massive amounts of air. It would rob your engine of air when you used the compressor. I have my BIG York on order and I can not help much other than this. But I would think that the compressor and the engine fighting for the same amount of air would be performance inhibiting.
Good Luck, I will probably have a similar York related post by next Fri.
