    A york is a brand of AC compressor that people use for an onboard air compressor since it is a self contained unit meaning it has a crankcase of oil and has an inlet and outlet for making air.

    Wait, why couldnt you get like a 6 hp lawn mower motor and hook it up? with just a stand alone tank? you could have your own gas powered compressor? anyone recomend better compressors for this?

    This is for On-Board Air. I suppose u could lock the clutch in somehow and run a belt drive from an engine and have a shop compressor if you wanted.

    These compressors are driven by the engine for air tires, running air tools and other trail needs for air.

    Somewhere I saw someone elses oil mod where they pulled the head and put a screw in the upper end of that oil passage. Supposedly a lot easier and he got the tip from someone at Kilby Enterprises so I would think the advice should be good. I haven't checked into this myself, does anyone know why it wouldn't work?
    Edit: found the link

    Because it would be more difficult to fit under the hood and take out on the trail. :D Look here to get an idea of what we are talking about.
