York Install, on the 5.0 (pics)

Installed the York compressor on the Mustang mill today.
It was a very easy install. It basicly sits right where the stock rotary compressor is located. I needed to fabricate a bracket. I used 1/4" steel plate, and basicly fabricated a 6 1/2" tall x 6" long x 5" wide L bracket, then fabbed a bracket for the front of the mounts on the steering pump bracket, and a set of angled brackets for the rear. It sits about an inch higher than the stock compressor so I needed, a 6 rib serpentine belt about 3" longer than the stock belt (80 1/2" by-passing the thermactor(smog pump), it would be 96" with the pump hooked up).
I just need to get a pressure switch, and regulator tomorrow. I have already fabbed an aluminum manifold to feed the ARB, air tank, etc, and plan to use an aluminum 20 lb CO2 tank located under the bed at the rear compartment riser. I brased some 1/2" NPT fittings onto the standard, O ring compression fittings on top of the York.
Kenworth truck sales was a real help for anything I needed. They have boxes of York parts right there in stock. And they were fairly affordable(brand new 10" Yorks $175). I hooked up a hose and filled a 38.50 tire, and this thing really puts out some air at about 2000 RPMs,
Anyway, Here are a few pics.

Re: York Install, on the 5.0 (pics)

Hres a pic from the other side, everything fits like if it was ordered from the factory.
Ive been wanting to install this thing for months, since I aquired it from CJ Dave(thanks buddy), but didnt want to put the time and effort into the project untiill I had the 5.0 installed. It si sure worth it to have a continuouse supply of high volume air on hand whenever you need it (goodbye CO2 tank, Goodbye ARB compressor).

Nice job! I'm thinking of doing this myself. Where did you get the serpentine clutch assy., and where did you get the radiator over-flow can? I've been looking for one for my 5.0, but I've been using one of the cheap plastic kits in the meantime.

Looks like a factory install. And that picture! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Oh, the intimacy between man and his machine... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Btw, what did you paint the York with? Did you get the serpentine clutch from the Kenw. store? How much was it? Looks nice.
