York Belt Driven

Kilby's got a whole kit or just necessary brackets, but they are closing their doors August 15. I am getting ready to pull the trigger on their bracket kit, and just find a junkyard York EF210R.

Nothing beats a belt driven air compressor for filling up tires and running air tools. All electrical ones need to take breaks and are slow. Even if you drop the coin on the nice Viair kits. It would be the same price for a pieced-together York system.

Here's some info:

Kilby is going out of business on August 15th so if you want to get something better do it fast.

A York is the way to go if you can swing the extra setup costs. I aired up everyone on one wheeling weekend. There are a lot of write ups on how to do it.

I just wish I had $1200. Looks like a bang up kit.

I installed a ViAir electric compressor with a 2.5 Gal tank .... a lot less money, but you trade off some airflow.

I installed the Heavy Duty kit from Viair and I air up all 4 of my 31s from 13 lbs to 27 lbs in about 5 min total time. Far better than the old 12 volt portable, likely slower than the York.

If you purchase a kit, you should plan another $30 or so in incidental expenses.

That's only if you buy his complete kit with a brand-new York compressor. You can save 2/3 of that by simply buying a used York F210 out of a junkyard like I did for only $35 and piecing the rest of it yourself with Brad's mounting bracket. My York-based OBA system ran me something just over $300 total installed including the compressor, Brad Kilby's mounting bracket, dual alternator pulley and manifolds, and fittings from Home Depot, 2.5 gallon air tank from Sun Performance, etc. It ran well for the ten years it was installed in my TJ and only needed a v-belt (between the compressor and alternator pulley) all that time. Refilled all four of my 35" tires from 7 psi to 26 psi in about five minutes total and ran air tools on the trail too.

I ran CO2 for a while, but a York is way better. I still have my CO2 set up for sale including tank straps.

Hard to believe Kilby is going under. They were awful proud of their stuff though. Wanted one for my Dodge. Could not justify the $$$.

i was wondering if you could provide me with links or more information regarding everything I would need.

I have a 2000 jeep wrangler with 35s. From what I understand york/belt driven compressors are the best way to go. But Im looking to talk with someone who actually has one. Thanks!
