Yeah i considered the york, but this was cheaper and easier, since i already had the compressor mounted and, and i dont have much room for another compressor. The york is a great way to go though, espicially if you want to keep the A/C. Kilby does have a nice website and products, though there stuff i a bit pricey. Im real happy with their pressure switch though.
But I was talking about this thread to a mechanic buddy of mine. He says the Sanden is not a good compressor to use for OBA. He has seen people do this mod and have the compressor seize up on them. Something to do with the oiling system.
He has seen someone go through three Sandens, and they all seized up after a short period of time.
Hopefully, these are exceptions and not the rule. Let us know how your setup works out, RussoGuitar.
Ive been running the air system very hard lately and its been doing awsome. I couldnt be happier with it. The inline oiler seems to be doing its job because the recovery bottle filter has been collecting oil in it so i know the compressor is getting lubricated. Ill keep you guys updated though if any failures occur. And Ruffedup, just disconnect the wire going to the compressor clutch and run a small jumper wire from it to the battery. If the clutch engages then the clutch is good, youll here it click. YOu can do this with the engine running to make sure the comp isnt seized.
Well I was wondering if does that I know that my clutch works but I mean any quick ways to check and make sure the compressor actually compresses and isnt worn out
You could disconnect the A/C lines, and then you can either turn it over by hand, (which obviously youd have to take the belt off) or start it up and engage the clutch, and just check for good suction/output. Id do it by hand... And im not responsible if you hurt your self doing this Chances are its probably fine.
