    I remember there was a guy on here who had built a bracket to hold a york compressor. I was wondering if he ever got around to getting any pics? I would like to see some. Thanks!

    I did one for mine too. just got my pics developed, so i'll scan it in. It's a very simple setup. It's a "T" made out of 3/8 slab, with tube spacers that mount on the 3 holes in fornt of the cylinder head.

    I like the bracket. Clean and simple.

    Is that a spring loaded tensioner? What did you get it off?

    pete,
    it's not a spring loaded tensioner, but it's a good idea. i am not sure what the tensioner bracket came out of, i think my dad fabed the tensioner about 15yrs ago. it's been laying around for a while. i just got a new bearing for it.

    restore69,
    i use the pvc cleaner as a filter, i drive through very dust roads. you can keep the A/C working but you will have to use 2 compressors and fab the brackets differently to accomodate both. i plan on makeing a bracket for a sanden compressor and mount it to the YORK. Sandens are smaller, lighter, and efficient. but they require lubing, YORKs have a separate resirvour.

    if you have anymore questions feel free to PM me.
