York mounting bracket

I have a 350 in my Jeep, and I have a York air-compressor sitting in my basement waiting for install.

My only problem is tryin' to figure out how I should mount the york to the engine, and what kind of belt-system I should use.

Does anyone have a dimension'd drawing of a mounting plate for the York .. and should I run the belt from the powersteering .. or should I put a 3-belt pully onto the crank and run the York on its own belt?

The info I find at OnBoardAir.com doesn't lead me to believe that Brad has a system for my 1970's 350ci block.

I mounted a York on my 350. I run a short water pump and have my alternator mounted on thd driver's side of the block (like the 60's style of mounting). Basically, I used a flat plate of 1/4"x4" steel plate. I drilled and elongated 4 mounting holes for the York. Then, I just kinda set it down in the engine compartment and moved it around until I got the pulley to line up. I blocked it up in place and welded up some brackets. If you like, I can take some pics tomorrow and post 'em up...

That would be awesome!!

I am thinking of mounting mine on the driver's side of my engine near my power-steering pump. That way I can have the air-intake for the York come through a filter on the inside of my firewall (I am not using the clutch hole anymore). The pressure side of the York would be using a 1/2" hose down to a 5-gallon air-tank and 1/2" lines to a manifold to split the air among four 3/8" lines going to each of my wheel-wells. A quick-coupler on the end would allow me to use a short-coil hose to fill my tires with air at the end of a trail.

I'll snap a few pics tomorrow. I just ran one quick disconnect to the front of the CJ and carry one of those cheap coily 25ft hoses. It reaches everything on the CJ.

Alright, no problem. Tomorrow I am spending time at work, so I'll check in here to see if the pics arrive.

I am designing new bumpers for a TJ tomorrow .. so we'll see how that turns out.

Cool.. I've been tinkering with bumpers lately myself. Plus, I just picked up a few new shop tools for the garage... a Procut25 Plasma Torch, a Lincoln Pro175 welder, a 1hp 16 speed drill press from Northern, and a "wetcut" metal cutting bandsaw from Northern. I've been making due with a chop saw, grinder, bench drill press, and stick welder for years... finally took the plunge and dished out money I didn't have. Next on the list... a tubing bender!! Man, is the wife gonna be pissed when the credit card bills come!!

Okay... snapped some pics. The one thing that I didn't catch in the photo is ths small tab that I welded on to the driver's side of the bracket. It bolts to the intake manifold just beside the thermostat housing (it's actually under that disconnected electrical connection in the pic) It keeps the bracket from vibrating. As you can see, the belt's not perfectly lined up but I haven't had any problems in the 2 years or so that I've been running it. In the last pic, you can see how I mounted the quick disconnect on the driver's side of the grill and on the passenger side is my winch remote connection.

Ahh .. perfect.

I think I know how I can do my brackets now. I have more room on the driver's side, my oil fill is on the passenger side .. so if the York is going to sit above my valve covers (even partially), I'll have to do it there.

Nice looking bumper .. but if I was your wife, I would complain more about having a piece of steel on the dining room floor

Now - how do you keep your engine bay looking so clean!?!?
