Today\'s harvest ! - fixed pics :)

Well, it seems I've saved at least $200 today. I found a set of Ford 8.8 calipers with pads, mounting pins, banjo bolts and a good passanger side hose for $70 total. Look at the pics and tell me if the pads look good enough to you. I've checked the pistons and they work fine. Now I only need one another pass. side hose and I'm done. Only the e-brake left to be figured out. Also I found a Sanden rotary comp with good suction and a good clutch for $40. It's not a bolt on but what is. I'll have to make some sort of bracket for it. Another reason to bring out the welder. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

The compressor. As you can see I have to fit the horizontal ear holes to the vertical holes my factory bracket has. Any ideas are welcome.

Re: Today\'s harvest ! - fixed pics :)

I'm not going to worry about it too much. I've talked to a guy who had his similar factory AC comp on a Cherokee converted and he only used the squirt and forget method a couple of times a year. He doesn't run air tools, only tire inflation and never had a problem. It has a little nipple on the intake side so I can just squirt something in there if I plan to run some tools. We'll see. My biggest problem now is to figure a way to mount it. Any ideas?

Re: Today\'s harvest ! - fixed pics :)

Forgive me for my lack of knowledge on the YJ but why aren`t you using a Yorkie setup ? Is that a 258 CI or a later 4.0 in your Jeep ? I`ve seen just dozens of Eagles etc.. with the whole York setup ready to go for a 258 .CHEAP !
I was at Wal-Mart yesterday and saw these 7 gal mobile air tanks for like cheap . I`ll be popping one of those in my setup for the reserve tank underneath , they were like
$ 30.00 and came with a hose , pressure guage and pop off valve and a handle if need be .

Re: Today\'s harvest ! - fixed pics :)

No prob. My YJ is the first year of the great 4.0L efi I-6 242 ci engino. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] It also has a single serpentine belt. I'm not ready to swap out ot the 258 yet just so I can put a York in. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I'll be putting in an air compressor AND a second alternator for a welder. I can run the comp off the serpentine and it already comes with the right serpentine pulley/clutch. Then I'll get a combo pulley for the stock alt and run the second alt with a v-belt. Makes sense? Plus, because of the I-6 I have less room in the engine compartment so this way everything will fit. (famous last words) [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I already dreamt the whole thing up but now I gotta make it too. If only one could sketch their dreams down while dreaming...

Re: Today\'s harvest ! - fixed pics :)

Hey, nobody responded on the brake pads. Do they look OK to you? I'm only putting maybe a 1000 miles a year on the jeep.

Re: Today\'s harvest ! - fixed pics :)

You know they look OK ( are they suppose to be chipped or worn on the corners like that ?) . For the sake of doing a refit like your doing , I would toss a new set on , they cant be that much and piece of mind bla bla bla .

The picture you show already has the right bracket on the rear of the compressor to attach to your mount. You just need to get a front bracket.
