York Compressor

I'm tired of refilling the CO2 tank and going the on board air route with a York. For all you York experts out there, is there a specific model or year compressor that I should target or avoid? Thanks for the help.

Contact Jerry. I seem to remember him talking about York compressors on this forum a while back. Or, you could use the search function, type in *YORK compressors*, and find out that way.

Ya jerry used to run a york on his stolen jeep. If you want a complete set up, you could look into Kilby. They sell a full blown kit, but it is kind of spendy...I dunno how much you plan on spending on it but it includes everything to set you up.

What you want is an F210 model York compressor which is one of the most common a/c compressors you'll find in auto wrecking yards. That's what I used in my York system and it worked great, never a hiccup. The F210 is a ten cubic inch compressor and it can crank out 6-9 CFI with the engine just up off idle.

I paid $35 for mine from a local junkyard. They had 6-8 to choose from so I picked the best one by connecting one of the junkyard's old batteries to its solenoid wire, spinning it with my hand, and picking the one with the most suction and output.

I would contact Brad Kilby at ::Kilby Enterprises:: POSTE HASTE to get this mounting bracket because he is shutting that part of his business down. That mounting bracket is the key to turning this into a fairly simple project.

One more thing, look for a York where the two top manifolds are held on with two small bolts each. Some are, others make it nearly impossible to attach the in and out airhoses to. Brad has a bolt-on connector to replace the two ports (suction and output) that replaces both of them which makes connecting the hoses up easy.

Here are a few good links for you...

Thanks Jerry. Yeah, I saw that Kilby is shutting down. I ordered their bracket and pully kit and got it in yesterday. I didn't realize that he sold a fitting kit also. I'll have to go back and check it out before he closes the doors for good. Thanks again for the help.

The last I heard, Brad Kilby's OBA business was still in operation. He announced he was shutting down a couple years ago but soon after decided to keep the OBA business going.

To buy from Kilby online you have to go to their online store which is a different site.

kilbystore.com

It's an easy mistake to make; I made the same one and contacted Kilby at which point I was rudely told of my error. Good luck with Kilby, it's unfortunate they're not the company they used to be.

None because you will only turn the compressor on when you're stopped & in need of air for your tires, air tools, etc..
