Would like help with OBA using A/C compressor...

Is there anyone currently on this board that lives in the NY,NJ,CT & PA area? I really want to turn my A/C compressor into an OBA set-up...

I consider myself a "ham-n-eggers" type mechanic, but this looks like a job I would need some help with... Does anybody that has done this conversion live near enough to Congers NY 10920 that can help me? I'd gladly pay for your time and travel... I've seen the very detailed "how-to" threads, I'd just feel more comfortable having some help walk me through this...

I'm in NJ, converted my YJ A/C to OBA, works great. Picked up a regulator/hose kit with preasure gauge and switch,
The fittings on the copmressot was the hardest part. also picked up a kenwoth air brake tank, 150 psi rated.

Just Added To Your Cart:


Viair Corporation 20055 - VIAIR Onboard Air Hookup Kits$79.95

This is the regulator kit I used, The fittings for the back of the unit were harder to find, my unit had one of the threaded nipples broken.
I used common copper pipr fittings, I will see if I cab find out which ones.
