Man, that's so clean. Cool switch panel on the dash!

So what's the belt problem?

That looks great but the unlabeled switches would drive me nuts.

Thanks. Ryan Hartman (Dave's son) did the work. He used to work at High Country 4x4.

The belt is narrower than stock. It's only running the alternator and the compressor Not sure if there is a wider pulley for the York.

Nice clean install but way less than ideal belt contact on the compressor! Rule of thumb is you want at the absolute minimum 1/3 of the pulley to be in contact with the belt!

It's Mudrak's bracket. Not mine. :D I'm probably more worried I'm driving the alternator OK. That's why I was wondering if there is a wider groove pulley for the York. :confused:

Green is for Aux lights, Red is the compressor, the first Blue is front, second is rear locker. I may see if I can find some letters I can stick on there.

What kind of air hose are you running beneath that loom?

Looks good Chris. :thumb: I had issues with low quality air hose kept getting hot and rupturing near the connection to the compressor. Not saying you used cheap air hose just pointing out what I discovered on my install

I'll take a picture of the hose later.

Looks AWESOME Chris. Very nice switch panel, and really cool ARB set up. Gotta love the engine driven compressor.

Sweet action man!

Jim Sanville found a pulley from a Volvo with a wider groove when he upgraded my PS pump. Don't know if this would work.

An adjustable idler would work well on that set up to get more belt wrap and good auto electric shops can machine or even source a narrower alt pulley.

all a good shop will need to know is that it's a york style compressor, how many grooves you need and how many wires (one or two wire) from there, they should be able to show you the selection of clutches available for it. clutches are pricey though

Wait, you need a clutch? I must have 2 or 3 of them sitting around..


and x2 on what Dan said about cheap hose, I thought the stuff from Lowes was going to cut it but I was only able to air up once before it got too hot & expanded. In fact, a year later and I'm still in the same boat...:rolleyes:

Can you eleborate on the little ashtray panel?

Really cool looking.

measure the hose, take the ends down to e & g terminal, have them make you a good quality crimped line. interstate turbo can also build lines.

As promised, more pics. Here's the hose I'm using, the check valve and coalescing filter, the storage tank, the rear air chuck and the front chuck.

Oh yeah, while I was under there tonight replacing the speedo gear housing with a double seal version from Mudrak I took a picture of the cool skid plate Jim at SROR built for me. :D

Thanks Drew. It's custom. I figured I'd just flick my cigar ash over the side. :D Ryan cut the plate to fit. The switches light up when they are on. I'll see if I can find the receipt and let you know where he got them.

Between the compressor and the storage tank, I'm set. Ryan tested locking and un-locking the diffs 40 times with the storage tank full and the compressor never kicked in. After bleeding the tank a little with a nozzle it only took under a minute to pump the tank back up. I'm stoked.

Real nice stuff, Chris, looks great.
