    Has anyone ever used a Sanden SD5 or SD7 as an air compressor? I don't have room for a york and the Sanden is almost a bolt in. I know that I will need an in line oiler but it shouldn't be anymore of a pain to fill the oiler vs the York pump. Also, has anyone heard of extremeoutback? They modify a Sanden SD5 to use grease instead of oil for lubrication. Seems like a great idea on one hand but grease in a oil application just doesn't seem right. Any ideas on this??

    Thanks,
    Mike

    These are small compact units with a lot of mounting options and good air output. They will almost bolt in place of the factory air pump and run off of a dual altenator pully. Sanden also has a good reputation for a quality product when it is used as an AC compressor. I've not heard anything bad about them when used as an air pump if they get oil but I am curious if the grease option really works.

    Thanks for the links! There is a lot of good info there.

    I'm still wondering about the grease option though. Maybe, it should just be avoided as the oiler seems to work.
