on-board air compressor question

I have access to the various write-ups for this project, but none for on a '98 TJ 2.5L with NO A/C. If anyone has a writeup specificly for that type of jeep, please post it. Once I get a york air compressor, will I be able to just bolt it onto the alternator (there are mounting holes there where the air conditioning compressor would be if I had one) or do I need a braket from www.onboardair.com to make it fit?


Jeepless...for now...

You need a bracket so that the york will mount to the ac holes. The holes are diffrent.

I love this crap!!

just get a stock ac unit for your jeep. with the stock mounts. an ac is pretty much the same thing as a air compresser. the ac will do the job of a air compressor very well.

I have to agree with V8 Wrangler. I went to the junk yard and picked up a $75.00 stock compressor. It bolts right on and you can find the longer replacement belt at your local parts store.

If you want pics send me a email.

I believe the stock pump is a sanden compressor , which will make air , but is in no comparison to the cfm a york puts out . if your just gonna pump up tires go to the junkyard and get the pump and bracket out of a similar jeep , don't forget to get the belt and idler pulley if it is equipped .

Actually the sanden compressor is very close to capacity of the York - not as powerfull, but close. Downfall is that you need to lube it as air passes through the compressor, with the york you dont. WIth that said, I went with sanden because it was easy - here's my writeup: http://4x4tj.dyndns.org:81/articles.php?id=6 and http://4x4tj.dyndns.org:81/articles.php?id=7 Since then I've replaced the filter with a coalescing type so all oil is removed.

I have seen many people use the PVC line or the breather off the valve cover as an oiling source , a fine mist of oil is all that is really needed for the Sanden .
