here is my homemade CO2 setup. it uses a #10 CO2 tank (free from my uncle), The Source 150psi fixed regulator ($30), hose and connector kit ($15). I have not acquired a bracket to mount it in the jeep just yet, but so i have been just strapping it in there when i go wheeling.
For $45, plus the cost of filling the tank.....can get between 30 and 36 tire fillups per tank.....it's not such a bad setup.
The welding supply place i get it filled said they would swap my steel tank out for an aluminum tank, which i will then paint.
Waiting for some time to mail back the york flange fittings for some rotolock fittings as I ordered the wrong kind....I need to find them then hope I kept the return address email with the return code....then I clean and rebuild the york because it's in some shabby condition, get a free weekend to do some wrenching, and it's going in. No tank for now, spent that money on the BB, but it's coming. I have plans.*evil grin*
I'm about to put the Kilby set up in my TJ. The compressor is sitting in the garage and the bracket and clutch is sitting at home on the floor. I do need to order some more parts and such for the compressor kit like valves, tank, hose fittings... good luck with yours.
My club has a #10 CO2 tank. Costs 7.95 to fill it up at the local welders supply. some welding places will sell you a tank and when it's empty, you take it in, and they give you a new one. You supply the regulator.
the welding supply place i go swaps the tanks out. you bring them an empty one, they give you a full one and send the empty off to be refilled. if i had one that i didn't want to trade, they could send mine off to be refilled. but after i swap mine for an aluminum tank, i'm going to take it to a different welding supply place that refills the tanks onsite, so i don't have to worry about sending off my clean, painted one.
