Re: engine driven air compressor / air ride ? need help bad !
I have seen plenty of items including complete kits for york set ups at Kilby enterprises. I have installed a york 210 in a full size GMC shortbed I had. I made the brakets for mounting with a plasma cutter and mig welder. Then went junk yard hopping for a pulley I could use to run v belt. I found one that fit on the front of my water pump that worked great. However the oiling is an issue. You must first do an oil mod to your york. Even after so there is alot of oil that still may pass through your system. So you must vent your crankcase, witch I did, and built a oil reservoir that would re-oil with oil that came out of crankcase from pressure build. Then I installed a oil and water seperator with check valve prior to tank. I also put in an adjustable pressure switch, and adjustable blow off valve. I would go from 0 lbs in 17 gallons to 250psi in under 2 minutes. My truck would leave the ground with all fours at 250psi. So I readjusted to 200 psi. I loved my set up, it was very dependable, and very fast, plus quiet. I am now developing a system to use any a/c to air pump with reliability. When I am done building and testing the unit, I am in hopes of mass production.
