    I got mine off of an 80s chevy van with the brackets to mount it above the water pump.

    The York will oil itself, the other type of compressors use the freon for lubrication.

    i can find plenty in line oilers so i can mount on on the inake side, use a standard 6.2 compressor, and then a oil water seperator on the other side....hmmm that may be the way to go. what the differance in airflow beetween a standard york and a stock type ac compressor? thanks agaian guys!:D

    Their are atleast 3 different york compressor displacements. Check out www.onboardair.com for how to tell the difference.
    You can run a standard oiless AC compressor with an inline oil source but they are not known to last as long as yorks. One of my clubmembers runs a Sanden with a inline oiler and has got 2 seasons out of it so far. Not bad considering they are easy to find and bolt right on. I think the most wear would come from start up when the oil has settled and their isn't any suction yet to oil it.

    As to finding the big 10cube York I have the easiest luck pulling them out of Jeep Grand Wagoneers. Every junkyard has a few waggys and they all seem to use the big York. Just make sure to get the first foot or so of line from it because they use a weird thread on the top. Easier to use the stock line and then convert to NPT then to find a fitting for it.
    Here is more info on identifying a York

    I know a guy that has a 350 vortec in his 4Runner. He is oiling the compressor then serperating on the back side. Works but alot of extra hasle.

    Hassle yes and no... easy to do, and is a direct bolt on, and is all factory parts... belt setup easy, as is plumbing (not saying a york isnt for plumbing) as for expense it looks like depends ing on where you get your pump its maybe a lil more expensive... I really want to compare cfm on a stock gm ac unit to a york. that will prolly be what my desicion is based off of. if they are close/ the same than ill prolly go with the gm unit.
