    Is the fill port for the oil on the side of the pump? Or actually there is a bolt on each side. Also what type oil should be in there.

    Thanks.

    Sandman, you running like a straight 30 weight?

    Here's a few progress pics.

    Got to make a stiffener bracket, belt tensioner and drill a hole for the service plug. Clean up and paint. Then on to mounting this.

    The one photo you can see the dual outputs. One will provide electrical for the jimmy while the other will be an output for the onboard welder. If I can manage to wire it all up. In theory it should work. By the way the paint can is there for size reference.

    You guys will have to excuse the blurry photos. Too much coffee this morning.

    Re: You guys with Yorks for on board air, question

    I'm glad to see there's someone else out there who has taken the initiative to install OBA on a 500 caddy. Although I had the pleasure /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif of figuring out the fabwork with the engine sitting between the fenders.

    Stupid question, but why did you tilt the york? It appears to have fit pretty well sitting strait up. Just curious?

    Re: You guys with Yorks for on board air, question

    I believe its just on a hinge so that he can put a tensioner on it and then the belt will stay tight all the time. You see it leaning all the wya because it has nothing to stop it from going that far... Thats my theory anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Rustbucket is on the money here. The tensioner will like a miniature tie rod with small heims on both ends. Instead of sticking a pry bar to tension it you just turn the sleeve and lock down the jam nuts when its tight. So when you tighten the belt it tilts over.

    BigBadCad, Did you put the york on that side of the motor?

    Re: You guys with Yorks for on board air, question

    Yes I installed the york on that side of the motor in almost the same location. My alternator is located directly below the York. You'll end up doing some trimming on the upper potion of the fan shroud to get the belts to clear (at least I had to). I fabricated a flat mounting plate with a 3/8th's milled slot for belt tensioning to allow the York to be mounted flat. I have pictures but I need to recover them from a corrupt hard drive and my truck is presently 1300 miles away (for another month).

    Are you planning on running with a serpentine belt?

    Re: You guys with Yorks for on board air, question

    Okay that makes sense. Are you planning to start selling some brackets for the cad swap? I am thinking of doing this swap and planning to have york, a/c, p/s, alt and was trying to figure out how to maount every thing.

    Never really thought about a production run on them. Probably not enough demand. Next summer I will be set up where I can make "one offs" for people without having the expense that I do now for smaller runs.

    [/ QUOTE ] No sweat. Here's a mod I recommend...(you'll still get some oil out of it, but not as much.) Oil fix

    Oil in the air is good for the air tools, which I need more often than straight air. I use a coalescent filter at the end of my air hose when I need to air up tires. HTH

    This oil fix is reported to be easier and works better:

    I still need to modify mine...

    I run straight 30W in mine.

    Yes, the oil fill ports are on each side. Just use standard 30W. I'm using 10w-30 cause thats what I run in my 350.
