Where is a good location to mount a Vair air compressor under the hood?
Where is a good location to mount a Vair air compressor under the hood? I had it mounted on a tray under the master brake cylinder on my TJ but there is no tray there on the JK. Not sure if I like where the ARB air compressor bracket puts it and how a Vair air compressor would mount to the ARB bracket.
I got the Viair 20001 200 psi kit from Woods.
I thought about using his under hood kit but the 2˝ gal tank won't fit behind the radiator because the overflow jug is in the way.
My plan now is to relocate the muffler and enlarge the the rear storage thing to house the whole system.
This will probably happen in a few weeks. I'll post when it's done
On the tire fill testing the compressor filled four 37" tires from 9 PSI to 27 PSI in 16 minutes.
What have we learned from all this? First of all, we know that this is only a 33% duty cycle compressor. But two and a half hours at 30 PSI, that's friggin great. For filling tires, the 400C and 400H represent what I believe is by far the best value for compressor based onboard air systems.
Tested fitted my Vair 400H and it seems to be a tight fit so buying the bracket is much easier than having to make it. Was going to get the tank brackets but the Vair 2.5 gallon air tank will not fit from what I have found out.
