    im running a 81 elky on straight nitro but its starting to get expensive. now ive heard some talk about engine driven comps but how do they work do you make them out of the ac comp or are they add ons. i dont want a regular old compressor mostly because of the noise and i really dont want to much clutter behind my seat

    i just trimed off the stock ends on my AC and braized on some air fitings. werks like a charm and fills 9 gallons in about 2 mins at low idle



    An intelligent person can take a dead language with no reference and find a way to read it. You on the other hand cant read shit in your own language if theres a letter or two out of place. Whats that make you??

    hardtops are NOT four doors. its more like a king size coupe.

    its better to look stupid asking, rather then standing there trying to look smart and remaining stupid.

    i dunno depends on your AC. theres a kat on here that used his stock frigidair on his caddy an i got the same one so i gave it a shot.

    what kinda ride you got? you could always try it and if it blows up two often or doesnt fill fast enough your no worse off. if ya thinkin of mounting an afterr market pump up anyways at least you tryed and all the plumbing would be there ready for the new pump.

    plumbing is easy
    line in from filter thru an oiler to the pump.
    line out from pump to a coelescing filter into the tank.

    i have my wiring on just a switch. its dangerous if ya forget to turn it off ya can over fill your tank in no time and then you have a bomb in your trunk.

    a pressure switch is more user friendly but mine seem unreliable as they kick off at varying pressures and then blow up and dont werk at all. hence my toggle switch.

    i ride an 81 el camino. i just got the bags in a few months ago and figured i would run straight nitrogen since i only planned on dropping the car when ever im out and about... BUT i c now that it can get a bit pricy. i heard from some dude at work i could use my ac but i have no clue. first of i need to see if the ac even works and what brand it is. ive had this car for about three years and its never worked so who knows. im hoping its just out of freon but then again i sure would like using that compressor for my air ride

    Quick question i know i could push high psi with my nito but how high can i go with an ac comp.

    Here you go for the info on the york ac pump.It also states the info on why you can't just use any compressor. http://www.offroaders.com/info/tech-corner...air-York-ID.htm

    What's up beto. I ride with a bottle of nitro, too. Its about 25.00 for the fill. I only use it when I go to shows and cruzes. So its not bad.. and I run a lil 9gallon tank with a compressor. Just to get me home. In case I run out..I think I only used 4 fills las year. Here are some pics of my ride. I need to take some of my setup to show you.

    I may not be right but this compressor has to be taken apart to service and add oil. The york models have a access hole on the side. Keep us updated!

    i just added an oiler on the intake side of my AC. then a coelescing filter to pull it out of the line before it went into my tank.

    seems to work and i run it preaty steady

    Inline oiler looks almost just like a water trap,or about the same size.Best bet is to do a little hunting around on ebay.Just make sure you dont get the tiny ones that go on the air tools them selfs

    A coalescing filter is a particulate filter.Traps well...particulates all the dirt an grime from.In this example---if any small particles of dirt get past your main intake filter an go thru the oiler an thru the compressor.The coalescing filter will catch not only the dirt but the oil that that compressor is gonna pump out (not much).It will keep all that crap outa your tank an valves

    alright finally got around to pluming every thing and it worked great. got it up to 230psi in about 5 minutes. i know it may be a bit slow compared to yorks and all but hell it works good enought for me. total cost about $70 bucks not bad at all. im happy. lets just hope it doesnt breakdown on me. i still plan to ride with my nitro tank as backup incase it does break but lets hope it dont
