Question York OBA (very specific questions)

Sorry for another York OBA thread, but I promise I have specific questions that I've not found answers to after searching this forum and others.

First, I have a 92 YJ Islander 4.0 w/o factory AC and I'm looking to add a York 210 compressor setup for on board air. I've got some specific questions about the compressor heads, successes/failures in buying remanufactured units from parts stores, mounting hardware (plates), and one particular pre-made kit available online....

1) Compressor head.... There are three heads. Flange style, Tube o-ring, and Rotolock. I'm looking for opinions on which style is the easiest to make connections to and which offers the best hood clearance if the compressor is mounted vertically. Also, more on this below...

2) Has anyone ordered reman Yorks from local/national parts stores or from Rock Auto and received anything other than a nice, rebuilt 210? Most I see listed say "209-210", which has me worried (if I go this route).

3) As mentioned, I have a YJ 4.0 w/o factory AC, so what should the mounting plate look like if mounting vertically? Pictures would be helpful.

4) I found this kit by Collins Bro's, which includes some mounting plates, hardware, flange style fittings, a pulley, v-belt, etc. YJ/TJ York Onboard Air Kit – CBJeep. I called them today to ask some questions about this kit like if it's for vertical or slanted/horizontal mounting, why they chose to include flange fittings, etc., but they couldn't answer a single question. I'm asking YOU guys if this is the kit I need or not OR if anyone has experience with it?

Thanks and I'll patiently await your replies.

3 day old post with no responses. Looks like you're going to have to be the guinea pig on this one Tits. Do an install thread with pictures so others will know what to expect if they install it.

Congratulations and we appreciate you volunteering for this mission!
