paid 19.99 for it at the junkyard plus the 5.00 warranty. i cleaned it all up and took the clutch off and found out its the middle one in terms of output, puts out 8.69 CI, im guessin cubic inches per rotation? www.onboardair.com

now i just need to collect the bags, valves and a tank and ill be set, might as well start with the compressor and work my way from there.

how do you know what kind of York will fit your ride, do you just guess or ask the guy at the junk yard?

you'll be addign oil to it regularly if you do that, they pass way more oil on their side then they do vertically

... and the best place to find the high output ones are in volvo station wagons.... they are the high output kind with the low profile intake and discharge fittings

from the factory Yorks were designed to leak a little oil past the seals. The one I got was moutned that way too and when I cut the lines to pull it out a lot of oil came out. when you use them for an air compressor its best to have them vertical because then the oil has a lot harder time of escaping. you need to run an oil/water seperator before the tank as well as a check valve. With the york you need to check the regularly to maintain 12 oz of oil in them. you can either make your oil dipstick or get one for $5.00.

I just used a prtable jumper pack, but you can use a car battery and jumper cables. just put the ground clamp somewhere on the compressor and then the positive goes to the little wire attached to the clutch. if the clutch sucks in then it works! :biggrin:

spin the outer hub of the pulley, it should free spin when no voltage is applied.. then put 12 volts to it, and spin it, you should see the center portion spin also now, as well as hear some air being pumped...

how would you guys compare one from a volvo wagon to one from onboard air? would i have better luck going to the local jeep only junkyard? and finding an aftermarket.?
