Re: What kind of PSI do u get with the zuk onboard

When i did mine several years ago, I had about a 2gal tank. good for airing up tires. The pressure switch was set to 100psi. The a/c can build the pressure but not the cfm. if you dont have a big enough tank, you can forget about running a impact. dont forget about an inline oiler on the inlet.

Re: What kind of PSI do u get with the zuk onboard air

My OBA trips the switch at 120#. I use a large tank, and can handle powertools quite easily. Never had a problem is I only air MY tires. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: What kind of PSI do u get with the zuk onboard air

my pump worked great but it would run SOOOOOO hot. I never ran air tools so I swapped from a 120psi to a 50 psi switch and the pump was much happier. I never aired up to 120psi so there was no need to put my pump through that

Re: What kind of PSI do u get with the zuk onboard air

I just bought a Max Air 4.0 , the whole kit w/3gal. tank was $400. Max pressure of 150psi and constant duty , fully rebuildable. There is an ExtremeAir Severe duty model that will go to 6cfm but it's around $550 . Just don't have the room on this engine for all that extra crap, so electric was the best way to go.

Ever thing of using K-Y Jelly when you pump? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Mine would boil water on it, but run is still did. I've got 3 more as back-ups, figuring I would change them like condoms, but alas, the original still works great. Just kept it well oiled. Still got the back-ups.

Re: What kind of PSI do u get with the zuk onboard

I used one of the inline oil dripper things. It looks kindof like a mini drier, but u put oil in it and there is a little glass bulb on top. There is a adjuster on top to control the oil drip speed. Mount it as close to the compressor as possible. Here is a pic of it and a vendor for you.
