Got this off our local Bushhacker list - http://www.justcompressor.com
i was going to post this as well
your typical sanden ac compressor is supposed to work real well
guy on POR said he has run one for years with no oiling
I am going to try that route
Do you have a link to a 'Sanden AC compressor'? I'm open to exploring all options before I go with something, but am I getting that right, it's 'AC' power?
ac = air conditioning
sanden is the common compact multi cylinder aluminum compressor
<a target="_blank" href=http://www.justaimlinks.com/compressor_belt_eng.htm>or even the one on the above listed site that he doesnt tell you its a sanden</a>
every junkyard will have tons of them as they are super common
You are correct, the Sanden type compressors work very well the only issue being oiling. I pour about 1 OZ every 3rd trip out to oil mine and I have been running it over a year now.
Check out my link with pictures of the compressor and setup in my fist gen blazer.

Now that's what I call a brainlock...........anyway, I'll keep my AC operational and add either a PowerTank or 12V high volume/high pressure.
This compressor is identical to mine except for the 'custom billet filter' and color.
Good pump but it really shakes the truck!
How do you have your's mounted............on the fenderwell or where? You got the same one (4CFM for $279 one)?
My standard AC still is operational, I added another compressor with a custom mount. I have two under the hood.
Thanks, I'll check out your webpage about that..............figured in AZ you wouldn't go without it............tho when I lived there, in the 8 years in the Valley, I had AC probably 2 years..............
I think the specs are the same.
Here is the mounting:
Used an old inner tube against the fenderwell and rubber washers between pump and bracket.
Here are the specs from my model and the company I ordered from:
Check these out. I saw them at an offroad event and they sweet(but expensive!).<a target="_blank" href=http://oasis-off-road.com/page4.html>http://oasis-off-road.com/page4.html</a>
I could be wrong actually, it was the GM a6 that i found on a pirate search.
