Yea York compressors are great pumps, can be cheap and maybe free. Then you have to buy or scrounge a pulley for fit multi-rib apps since almost all of them are v-belt. The brackets can be made or bought but you still need space to mount or delete and reroute other accessories for room, not impossible but a PITA for sure. Plumbing and wiring would be about the same for any of the setups but maybe a little more difficult and expensive for a/c comp OBA's. A/C compressors always need to be regulated since most of them should have no problem producing pressures over 300 PSI.
There are many electric compressors with high and even 100% duty cycles. I know the one I got can air up 4 - 33's even 35's from 5-10 psi to 30 psi without cycling and that's with a 5 gal storage tank. It can run a 1/2" impact to remove 8 lug nuts, I never really tested it to see how many more things it can remove before the air supply is depleted. This is not a nascar pitstop haha. Both systems would benefit from a storage tank, tanks can be made to fit all for all different configurations or sizes. A belt driven OBA requires it to be mounted under the hood and the engine needs to be running. Elec compressors can be mounted anywhere and can very easily be made portable, used on/for multiple vehicles and even away from vehicles if needed.
I guess if your electric compressor choices are the cheaper models or ones from HF and Wally then they probably aren't up to task. A tip I found that makes a difference is having good quality air tools. The cheaper air tools or worn ones tend to use more air and their power ratings are usually less.
