Do you think there would be any issue with keeping the bolt in the same place? Could a hold be drilled through the new notch and bolted in the same location and use a shorter bolt? Would there be room to fit bolt head between the frame and the shock?

Here is a pic that shows where the hole would have been on mine.

Until I went out and looked, I couldn't remember why I did it this way. I think that is the best way to go about it. Let me know if you come up with something different.

I've had a york compressor sitting on the shelf for about 2 years now. It's finally time to start piecing together my OBA system. I've been reading tons of threads on OBA systems. One in particular that I came across mentioned installing a "tool oiler". I do plan on running air tools. Do I need this?

I've decided to go with the Kilby combo pulley and a fan belt to run the compressor. I think this will make my future install of A/C a little more manageable.

I'm in the process of collecting all the parts. So far I ordered/have:

Compressor
25' of Air Hose
5-port Manifold
Pressure Gauge
Air Filter
Kilby Combo Pulley
Kilby Pressure Switch
Kilby Pop Valve

Once I have the combo pulley and belt I can start this project by fabbing a bracket for the compressor. I'm excited to finally start this project. Any input is welcome, and appreciated!

My Build!

I installed the Compressor yesterday. I decided to go with a combo pulley for the alternator, and run a separate fan belt. The. bracket I made is pretty funny, but works great! It is mounted to the engine block, under the alternator.

Got the OBA 90% done. I still have to route the York intake to the engine intake, and a few other minor things.

I took mrblaine's advice and I'm not gonna mount a tank...yet. I have a 10 gallon tank to keep in the garage/campsite for running tools. I have 2 quick couplers, one under each side of the dash, next to the doors. I also put the air pressure gauge in front of the TC shift lever.

Looking good Hoover! Your going to love having OBA!! I will be curious to see how much faster the York is compared to my Sanden set up. You will probably still beat me filling up those 40's while I am filling up 35's.

Thanks Drew, I'm pretty stoked

I plumbed the air lines so I can fill two tires at a time. Theoretically this will equalize the pressure in each tire, and I can watch the pressure from inside the cab. I might add a second, low pressure gauge specifically for that purpose.

I'd like to route a line from the York to the ARB's, and use the ARB compressor as a back-up for the lockers.

I haven't been wheeling with all this snow we've been having so I haven't had the chance to air up from 8psi. I did go from around 12psi to 20 in about a minute. Much faster than those cheesy gas station compressors.

Nice vintage plate!
