any simple and cheap onboard air systems out their for the expecting parent on a budget?
I was told about this one at Harbor Freight. You get what you pay for so be careful when asking about "cheap".
Use at own risk
I found this one for $10.00
Word of advice..Don't buy a VIAIR product.Mine never worked and still doesn't,they don't seem to want to do anything about it.
I'm alittle leary about VIAIR products Heard nothing but bad
Serpentine or v-belt? They can be done pretty cheap with a little ingenuity.
My thoughts, junkyard York, make a few drawings and have the templates CNC plasma'd and welded together, bolt it up, run another v-belt, and find fittings from there.
What was so bad about VIAIR? I've had it for a year and used it each time I wheeled. Aired down and aired back up my tires each time... I even used air tools several times...
I guess it's just too soon to have mine come up with any problems.
Pretty simple then, york, brackets, fittings, belt.
I'm not sure.I don't have a air compressor,but i've talked to some people and they all seemed to say its in the quality or lack there of.
Might wanna consider this...
Ive got one, still working out some bugs, but seems to be pretty decent for the price.
Ill be making a thread on the build once Im done (for the season at least)
what about the old school, ac pump??
That's been mentioned with "York."
The York works really well. If you can't cut your own brackets just buy them from Kilby Enterprises. They do some really neat receivers too plus you can get any fittings etc from them.
If you use their bracket when you have a/c on a serp. set up you need to extend the PS resevoir neck, but I'm not sure about V belt set ups.
Here is how I did it.
I'm doing a york setup personally... .have the compressor and the bracket about halfway built
Kilby only sells brackets for serpentine belt systems.
Muddytaz is the only person I've seen who sells brackets for v-belt setups.
The ones that Muddytazz sells look great. Much better than the one that I made for my setup.
Thanks guys, if anyone needs more info, just pm me
I am thinking about doing this soon, I'm glad it came up.
Great write up Chad
anyone used the original smog air pump bracket
from the serp setup to mount a york compressor?
it might fool the emission man too!
just a thought.
