Thanks brokenujoint!

I have spent some time on google looking at all the other builds. I was lucky enough to have the bracket for the York. My wife added power steering but in the early 90s. When they did that, they added the bracket and the serpentine belt. So I'll have to change out the pulley and clutch. I plan on having the option for power tools so I'll need a tank. I heard you can get one cheep at Harbor Freight.

I plan on doing the oil mod and maybe the dipstick add.

If you don't mind, could you send me a picture of your copper heat sink?

Thanks

Chappy

Long time no post, been really saving to upgrade the jeep and that time has finally come!
Installing my HP 30 (finally!) Took a few hours to remove the LP30 and install the new one (all not finished yet but should be almost done by tomorrow. Air locker, 4.56, sand blasted, painted, JJ conversion, Sway bar flip (MrBlaine's), new ball joints and bearings, along with the 17" Vanco Brake kit. BTW, Cycling the suspension sucks by yourself!

Also got some Savvy Under Armor installed! Just have to set my rear pinion angle, and install PSC steering box and then ready for JV! and/or anywhere I can get ride of this rattle!

Just a quick pic of no front axle

And that word comes with an increase in $. Looking at the pic you'll most likely just an alternator pulley from onboardair.. The pulley on your york looks pretty beat up though. Either clean it up enough that it wont eat up a belt or source another from the yard. The york and the tank are the cheap parts of the system yet the heart of it. All the money comes in from the fittings, bracket, check valves. etc. Kilby has a good 2.5 gal tank but you'll only get about 5 seconds before your tank is depleted and your york kicks in again. IMO if your not running an arb or plan to use air tools, and only plan to use it for tire filling, dont bother with a tank.
Dont bother with a rebuild kit. They are cheap enough that if it dies on you in the future, so what, get another. If you have an air tight bumper, you can tap that and use it as a tank as well. Also the york gets hot with continuous use. In only a few minutes its to hot to touch. I ran 3/8 copper tubing off the york and wrapped it several times to act as a heat sink. Works well...
As mentioned do a google image search on york oba diagrams. Some people have put up some good schematics of how it should be done. It's what I followed 10 yrs ago and the same set up is working great for me.
There is also a tap and plug mod that keeps oil from blowing into your lines. Google that as well. Easy mod.
You can get the compressor clutch pretty cheap if you shop it. It's a very interchangable part that goes under numerous part numbers for cars, heavy trucks and industrial applications.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/York-Freight...sories&vxp=mtr

Pressure switches and fittings and other parts are pretty cheap here.

I had a little trouble finding fittings that would directly thread on to the compressor in and output. But, I eventually found another compressor in the junkyard that had the same type fittings but with a hose barb connector. Kilby sells those for big $$.

The remove the clutch you just need to remove the bolt, then thread a 5/8 bolt into the pully. It will force the clutch right off slick.

Gotta give props to Discount tire at both Mission Gorge Santee and Mission Gorge Clairmont. Had a mediocre sidewall cut on a brand new KM2 (purchased 5 against my better judgement). It was about 2/3 of the way to hitting cord or closer. Took it in and they squabled about it not being deep enough. I said, " so should I just wait until it blows out when I'm going 70 down the highway? Then my insurance co will cover it because my jeep will be wasted." They then said ok its cool, we'll cover it. While inside I got to thinking. Why not swap it/try to swap it, for a Kevlar.. I asked.. The guy said Sure, as long as you cover any possible price differences. Fine. 48.00 for a new roadhazard and -2.00 returned for the price difference. Ok cool. Then I got to thinking. I had a 5th tire in the garage never mounted while waiting to get beadlocks. Can you guys swap my 5th for a kevlar? Still have the sticker on it. Never used. Sure... Cool. Two out of 4 traded.. So, how many more Kevlars do you have? Two... cool. I'll buy em. 850.00 out the door for 2 tires. YIKES.. That's ok. Now I got 3 new tires to sell and I've got WAY more peace of mind knowing I'm sporting a MUCH better tire. Went down to the Clairmont store for the installs. They apparently have been getting a lot of MTR's in if your shopping for them. They are usually VERY hard to source, esp in a 17" rim.
