You would be better of just piecing a kit together. There is not a lot to them.

Having installed a York OBA system years ago into my previous '97 TJ, there isn't much you need beyond the mounting bracket that you can't source at your local Home Depot or Lowes. A pressure switch to shut it off once the correct air pressure in the tank is about the only thing you won't likely find locally very easily, but you can get it and most any other OBA accessory from Brad Kilby at ::Kilby Enterprises::

Getting it working is pretty simple but there are things to consider such as how it will be driven... serpentine belt or fan belt. I went fan belt which was a lot simpler & less expensive.

One more suggestion, connect the York's air intake to the Jeep's OE air intake tube via a screw-in barbed hose fitting. That way the York gets its air through the Jeep engine's air filter which works very well.

I figured I could find all the stuff pretty easy local the only thing I think I'll have trouble finding is the pulley for the alternator that has a v belt. Cuz the York he is selling is v belt driven. Here is a pic of what he has

I'm not sure what that is to the right but he is asking 140 for what is pictured seem like a good price.?

Let me make sure I know everything I need
Block to seperate everything
Pressure gauge
Cut off valve
Tank
Air hose
Quick connect ends
Switch to turn it on and off
Is there anything else I'm missing

That link for Brad Kilby's website I gave above has a dual belt replacement pulley for the alternator. One is for the serpentine belt, the outer pulley is for a v-belt like for a fan belt.

You're also missing the manifolds that mount onto the York's head so the intake and output hoses can be connected. The flange style is best if you can find a York with that style manifold. The flange style manifold is held onto the head with two bolts.

I'm not sure what you're calling a cut-off valve but you'll need a safety blow-off valve for the tank, and a pressure switch. I never felt the need for a pressure gauge on the system itself, it shuts on & off when the pressure gets too low or high enough, there's no real need to monitor the tank's pressure with its own gauge.

Yea I saw that he sells the pulleys. And doesn't that York have the places on it to connect the hoses on the top? It has two tubes in the top that look like hoses connect to them. And would this kit have everything I need in it besides the tank and the pulley. http://www.kilbyenterprises.com/accessory-kit.htm

Yep that would be a good kit. So far as connecting the hoses to the fittings on top, those hose fittings on the York itself must be barbed hose fittings or the outupt hose can blow off. Just make sure you do whatever it takes to install that type of fitting.

Brad has fitting adapters for most styles of heads made by York.

A good closeup photo of the top of your York's head would be helpful to know what type of fittings it has/needs.

Here is the closest pic he sent me. Looks to be barbed fittings

You're good to go, that is the flange style manifold. Keep in mind the air temperature leaving the compressor is VERY hot and will soon melt conventional air hose. You'll either need to use high temperature hose like Goodyear makes or use a a copper air line formed into a coil shape to resist the heat & engine vibration. Personally, I used hi-temp Goodyear hose & it worked very well. Its exterior was reddish as below in this photo of my previous TJ's York OBA.

It appears to be what he was using as a pressure switchand block it has the pressure switch which looks like it's off of a shop air compressor, blow off valve, Gauge and an inlet an outlet. The only issue ic with it besides being used is that the switch lists the cut in pressure at 90 psi and the cut out pressure at 120 and items has a 135 psi blow off valve. Now I know that the Kilby kit uses a pressure switch rated at 120 on 150 off and a 165 psi valve. Now what kind of difference does that make as far as my system goes. I still plan in getting a coslescing filter, tank, and a oil return system but if I can use that piece I posted pics of that will save me around 75 bucks. Thanks for any help.
