    Been so long, I forget who was the brother CK5er that purchased and shipped me the compressors. Thanks again, though!
    I finally decided to mount it instead of carrying it in my locker. Now, it's "plug 'n play!"

    Headlight relays, air horn compressor, 12VDC power receptacle in the cab and the OBA compressor. Fog/driving/rock lights later. And I have a 300 Watt A/C inverter I want to replace with a much larger one and hard wire it.

    I like the little "fuel-line-rubber-anti-vibration" footsies you put on it. :thumb: Turned out good. I'm still not sure if I want to hard mount mine, or keep it swapable between the other 4bys or not. Time will tell I guess.

    Whats that sensor for where the pressure gauge goes? and does it get too hot for the compressor sitting in the engine bay?

    Pressure switch.

    On at around 90psi, off at around 140psi. I ain't sure if I want to plumb it to my sliders/rear bumper. Y'all think it'll burn it up?

    I covered it with a ziplock baggie to keep it clean, it gets very hot under use, pumping up four tires. Don't think it'll be bothered by the under hood temps.

    I have 2 of those units. They are being plumbed to a 10 gal. tank to make airing up quick (39.5' aren't small :wink1: ), and allow short bursts of air tools. I know a lot of folks that use them on a regular basis. They seem to be holding up well.

    I think that was me. I'm pretty sure it was. I remember getting (2) for somebody from NC. I guess it has been a long time. :doah:

    Kool, thanks again Scott! I tried to get one or two several ways, and you came through. :bow: :bow: :bow:
    It works great, especially for the price. I'm keeping the other one as backup!

    I use mine quite a bit. Especially when B_to_C isn't around with his York for me to bum air off of.
