All i need is a 124" serpintine belt and ill be pumping air

The install was not that hard but more time consuming than anything. I decided to put a York model 210 A/C compressor where the second alternator goes. I have not installed a tank at this time as I'm getting ready to paint it. The pictures are horrible I know. Sorry, cheap camera.



The brackets​


I forgot to take pictures while I was making the brackets but here is a before and an install. The bracket I used was out of an 78 Ford if I remember correctly. I cut the entire left side of the bracket off. I used the right side to mount the compressor. I welder a piece of angle iron to the original bracket and mounted it to the two holes on the Duramax A/C compressor. I did it this way so the York would be high enough that i could still get to my power steering reservoir.



Removing the Ground Plate for install.



Mounting the compressor was a little harder. I had to remove the bracket that has the ground plate and the terminal block on it(top picture). I totally took it off. The terminal block just has a little tab you push in to release it from this bracket. I tucked the terminal block under the compressor(bottom picture). I also took of the radiator hose and ran the battery cable under it.



Mounting the Compressor.


Thats the easy part. Just bolt it up. I looked at the belt line up from the top and both sides to be sure it was lined up.






Installed the pressure switch and air/oil separator.


Heres a side view. It doesn't really matter were you mount them. I bolted the pressure switch to the top of the compressor. I zip tied the separator to the brake reservoir. I will mount them a little different later. All of this stuff will come apart in the spring to be painted.

Looks good, I didn't see it because you have it in the LLY section. Thought about going with an EDC myself. How many rpms do you need with that compressor to get decent CFM? I found a pump but it required 3000 rpms for 9.1 CFM. What will you be using the air for? Mine will be for air bags, shocks, train horns, and then I will have hookups on both sides of the truck for an air hose.

Can't help you with the belt though, sorry.

1200 RPMs for 8 CFM if IIRC. I had it on my old truck. I painted the truck using its own compressor. With the truck at idle it keep up with the paint sprayer.

Cool, this is what i've been wanting to see. Couple questions though..What vehicle did that bracket come out of? I know you said '78 Ford, but was it a car, truck, V8? And where did you pick up the serpentine pully?

Thanks. :D

I think it came of a 78 ford truck. dont know much other than that. You could easyily make a braket out of a piece of plate and a piece of angle. You can get the pully from onboardair.com $115 A peterbuilt dealer $85 + $10 core or you could make on like I did. I took the dual v belt pully off the compressor and mounted it to a lathe. I just took the Center rib off the pully.
