88 YJ OBA from stock compressor

Is there any reason why I couldn't use my stock a/c compressor for an OBA set-up?

Do I have to use a York?


Has anyone done this?

Finally a non-bashing statement to me from Dave!

No but really I have no idea where to start with this project.

What type of fittings,switches,valves and what not would I need?

BTW, hows your Redhead build going Dave?

i don't think i've bashed anyone, at least not on purpose , was it about the lift and tires?

anywho, i know it was pretty easy to get all the info you need to build it by searching the web, i searched it out a while ago.

i'm making slow but steady progress on the redhead, thanks for asking. i got a family style roll bar out of a pick n pull today for it. speaking of oba i also picked up an air pressure gauge at a swap meet for it also. i'm focusing on putting the d44 w/lockrite in the black one now.

only thing that i know of about doing OBA is you have to have one that is oiled separately from the air side of the compressor, yorks are very popular for this application... i only have heat and fresh air so i dont have a compressor on mine

Shoot me a pm and I can help you design and plan out an oba set up depending on what youd like to do with it. I have put a crap ton of research into this topic lately because Im getting ready to do it to an XJ. Its actually fairly simple but some pre project planning is deff. important for a project like this.
