    You have to make custom brackets, which is a PITA. I think the best place to put the york is where the stock air pump was and use the pulley off the engine that drove the air pump.

    I have been thinking about doing the same thing. Basically, I am going to try to run the york on the pass. side of the engine and mount it where my smog pump used to be. I'll see if I can modify my smog pump brackets to work. If not, At least I'll get measurements from them to fabricate some new ones. I have the option of doing that because I don't need to run emissions on my '74. It might not help you guys though. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gifIf you have to run a smog pump and want to keep your AC, you may be better off running a small heavy duty 12V compressor. You can mount them to the top of your inner fender under the hood, or, they make them small enough so that you could mount them just about anywhere under your truck tucked up inside the frame. I know they make some that are pretty heavy duty and will run air tools quite well. It might be worth some research.

    Depending on the year of your truck. The alternator has a ribbed pulley or a v-groove pulley. If it has the ribbed pulley OBA makes a replacement pulley that is a ribbed pulley with a v-groove to allow you to run a york from your alternator all you have to do is make brackets to mount the york beside the alternator.

    Yep! Looks similar to some I have found while researching this. I may go with one anyway. Much easier to run some wires and bolt the sucker down than fabbing up brackets and routing hoses around the engine. Not as cheap as a York setup, but really clean looking IMO /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just built my serpentine york bracket W/ a/c (that doesnt work). I'll get pics on saturday but my fabrication blows. Maybe the general idea will help you though. I kept the v-groove pulley on the york and am going to run a combo pulley off the alternator. Building the bracket wasnt that hard and I'm a wee-begginer fabber.
