    Cool deal! I'm trying to do te same thing, but keep getting bogged down with repairs...

    These guys cater to Jeeps, but info is info when building this stuff: http://www.homestead.com/vj40yorkonboardair/index.html

    Shoot, I know there's a guy that did a real useful write-up somewhere on the net on a 350sb with a York for on-board air in a K5 or K10/20/30, but the link is on my work computer (and wife just got home, so time to sign off...).

    Keep us updated, and good luck!!!

    bandit,

    you may want to search for some early chevy vans. they also used the york compressor. i was going to go that way but the accessories in post1stgen blazers are different. also the water pump is longer in post1stgen blazers. I just fabed my own. it's basicly "T" built from a 3/8 slab of metal. It bolts to the front of the cyl head on the passanger side. I'll post some pics later.

    I also added a 3gal airtank in front of the gastank, above and a tad in front of the pumpkin. i had to(excuses, excuses) install a 2" body lift to fit it in. I am running stock suspension with a 2.5" block on rear.

    I just finished my setup this weekend. I aired up my 33s in no time.

    ARQ.

    ya. fabbing up the bracket wasnt to hard. give it a try. that the only way you'll learn. its start to get fun after a while. good luck. its worth it.

    No an air pump wont work they dont build enuff pressure. They do make a great crank case evacuation pump tho!!
