OBA System?
 
I've been reading a lot about how to setup an On Board Air system. The kind ran off the serpentine belt. The jist of it is, you use an A/C compressor for your air compressor. I've heard that the York F210 is a very common unit. It's used because it holds its own oil and self lubes.

I was googling it, I was directed to Jeepforum.com. As I am not a member(WF!! it's a Coke vs. Pepsi thing). Anyway, there was a lot of links I could not access and a lot of "P.M. me for details". Needless to say I'm hoping maybe someone uses both sites and can grab some details.

I was wondering if anyone has taking on this mod? If so, maybe a few pointers? A couple pics would be great! I think what I would like the most, would be a list of vehicles you can get a York 210r from. Thanks to anyone that can shed some light.

Compressor front left of the motor. Tubing running down the bar and across to the driver side. Under the tubing is grey rubber the oil return line.

Rubber hose between compressor and tubing to allow movement when the engine twist with torque.

From tubing back to hose on driver side. Which helps make plumbing a little easier. The reason for coming to the driver side is to allow the air to cool as much as possible before hitting the filter. The cooler the air. The better the filter does at removing oil, water and any dirt. Will also make it last longer.

Going down the line in this picture.The rubber hose comes into the coalescing filter, into check valve (mounted on bracket), Into the manifold. On top of the manifold is the pop valve to insure the system never gets above 175 PSI, gauge, pressure switch (to kick the compressor on and off when needed) and outlet to the tank. Also on the manifold is a connector for the air hose.

Also have another mounted by the tail gate.

Under the jeep is a 1.75 gallon tank.
