York Air...Buy it?

After looking at H8's setup, I started looking for a compressor for the heck of it. Then I found this:

What do you guys think.
...Now I just need a 5.0 and a SOA setup and a mean-looking face.

....I wanna be like H8!

Look at the shaft. I do believe it is a 10. No clutch though.

Re: York Air...Buy it?

I would, sure buy it at that price.
Like BigHG stated, the output shaft sure looks like the high output, 210 model (10 cubic inch).
You would still need to get a clutch, but you can find them at any and all comercial truck supplies. The Kenworth dealer hadjust about every type clutch you could ask for (V belt, double V belt, 6, 8 , & 10 rib serpentine, and different diameter pulleys) they run anywhere between $60 and $100 depending on the model and the parts guy's mood.
Its such a great addition to your rig. I just picked up a 6 gallon compressor tank from Grainger yesterday,(it will fit perfectly under the tub, right at the rear seat riser), and plumbed in the air lines, safty valve, & drain last night. With any luck it will be out of the way of the upcomming 32 gallon aluminum fuel cell install also.
I plan to fab an air manifold this morning, to accomodate the pressure switch, ARB solonoid,2 regulators, Filter/oil seperator???, gauge and air chucks.
I would buy the York even if you dont start the install right away. Atleast youll have the main component, and with it constantly staring at you, it wont be long before it gets the call to action.
Then you can be just like me
Whats with the mean face comment??? That was my happy face. I can feel a scowl brewing just thinking about that.

Re: York Air...Buy it?

It`s hard to tell from the pic what the end of the shaft looks like , did you ask if it is the high CFM one ?
