    I picked up a free york compressor 2 days ago when I got my Dana 60. It was just sitting there so I asked the guy if he wanted it and he said just take it so I did. Well I get it home take it aprat and it's in perfect condition, clutch works and everything. Only problem is that it's a medium stroke and not a long stroke. How many CFM is the difference? Also can you convert it to a long stroke and what is the cost/parts needed? But mainy what I was curoius on was what the difference in air displacement was. Thanks for your time. Later

    A medium stroke is 9CFM, a long stroke is 10CFM. Just run the medium, it was free so you have nothing to lose. Rebuilding it to be a long stroke would likely cost more than the $30 it would cost to get a long stroke from the junkyard.

    Alright yeah I dont really care about a 1 CFM difference especially since I will be running a tank anyway. The other question I had for ya is you said it is 9 CFM but at what PSI? Alright Thanks

    I thought the 09 or 10 was the displacement (10 cubic inches) not the flow rate?

    I think I have heard the 210 will flow about 4cfm at 90psi at about 2000rpm.
