    Anyone have their York not mounted exactly straight? How far in degrees is it off? I made a bracket, but I won't be able to make it straight up and down, the master cylinder is in the way. I'm worried about starving the bottom end from oil. Thoughts? Advice? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    <font color="green"> You can do it, it's fine all the way to horizontal according to the York manual. The oil level needs to be adjusted accordingly and the output needs to be on the low side. </font>

    If you lay it down sideways you need to do this .
    I did that to mine just about 20 minutes ago.
    If you're just a little off vertical I don't know if this applies.

    Thanks Gentlemen!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Evan, the oiling thing is just what I needed to know /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif, and Mofugly (nice user name ) That article rocks! Just as described... I pulled mine apart, and the suction side of the pump DOES pull oil, wow, I'd never have found that, except here /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif. The only other thing I can think of that the oil might be necessary for, other than the rest of an A/C system, would be the top rings of the compressor piston and or the piston wall. I'm not sure of the internal construction materials of the York, so I'm not sure if this mod will affect the life of the compressor.

    Found this in the junkyard on a K5 that wasn't originally equipped with A/C.
