    I think your best bet would be to dig through a junk-yard and find another York. I ended up getting one from a 73 chevy p/u with bracket (for a 350) and barb fittings on the hoses for almost $30. I also got one from a Volvo (also a 210 and $30 because I got the other one on a 1/2 off day) and found a dodge with the barb fittings on it (those were free[​IMG]).

    The clutch is around $150 new and a rebuilt compressor runs around 400.

    Or you could swap the parts around on the 2 you have and come up with 1 good York and junk the other.

    The difference in the med. and large in 9 CID vs. 10 CID. In other words your 209 will put out 90% of what a 210 will. I don't think either is enough to run air tools so you would have to run a tank no matter what.

    yeh thats what i was thinking. maybe i will just go get a few. i got the old style flange type. i am happy with that. now i can find any one that is good in a 210. and use the flange style top. if anybody needs a flange top i got one. you pay shipping and its yours.
