    Any advice on linking up a York compressor for onboard air, if all of the accesories are being used...P/S, smog pump, Alt, A/C. My blazer has the v-belt setup, and adding the york will be interesting, since all of the pulleys are in use. Has anyone done this while keeping all of the accessories in place....especially A/C?

    I just put onboard air on my 79. i love it. it was pretty easy to do. i got mine off of a ford bronco and took the mount along with it. i then drilled a hole and put it on the ps pump mount. then i welded a cheap lil plate thing that goes to the header bolt. email me and ill send ya pics.

    I'm trying to remember where I read it, but some one used a serp style alternator pulley on it. Not sure on your mounting options, but I have also seen people weld pulleys together to get the job accomplished. Check around on onboardair.com and rockcrawler.com cause I know I saw a couple articles when I was looking at york ideas. Wish I could be of more help.
