Was able to take the filter/coalescer apart today. Kinda interesting:

Looks like a fridge water filter

True. But I think it's going to be easier to keep it and work around it than to return it and pay more for a smaller one. Just gives everyone another thing to make fun of me for

Tonight I hit a big milestone in this project. I got the inlet side of the compressor all plumbed up and ready to go. Got a coat of flat black on the bracket (yes I painted it while it was snowing - I hid under a juniper bush ) and when it was dry to the touch I bolted it on. It has a little bit of flex, which I was worried about, but I can stiffen it up if need be, and when I put the hose on the filter it's actually pretty stiff and helped hold the filter up a bit. I should probably get a rubber washer or something to put under the filter so it sits on the bracket square and tight, but at least it's secured on something for now. I'm kinda getting tired of this project, tired of working for an hour at a time after work, outside, in the cold, after dark, so I am just trying to get this thing done.

So the inlet air filter is 1/2" MNPT. I have a 1/2" FNPT to 5/8" barb fitting under it, then a 5/8" hose to the fittings on the compressor. I hope the 5/8" hose is stiff enough that it won't collapse under vacuum. We'll see.

Oh and BTW, this thing barely clears the hood. I measured as best I could, but in the end I think I just got lucky.

I also am going to take a whack at the support for my outlet filter/coalescer and air manifold. We'll see how this turns out. For the outlet filter/coalescer, I'm going to have this c-channel that I made out of the remainder of the 22ga. that I bought run down to the angled part of the fender, and run a couple bolts through it. It will support a pipe nipple on the inlet side of the filter, as close as I can get to the filter.

For the air manifold, I need to raise it about 1 1/2" off the fender, so I made up a couple other little brackets for that. I made some webs on them to stiffen them up as well, and that should end up being pretty rigid when it's all bolted up. Then I need to get a couple more fittings and all I'll have left is a little more wiring and then I'll be done.

Looking good Matt!

Your fab skills with a lack of tools is impressive. I don't know if my brackets would look that good even with the fab tools in the shop.

whatever Dan. You did a frame-off with a custom under-bed storage box that looked (and looks) totally awesome. If you were to look close at what I have here you'd probably lose your lunch.

But thanks for the compliment

I'm just trying to get something thrown together. Something you don't see in the pictures is that after I had my bracket all painted nice and shiny black, I realized it was hitting another bracket on the air cleaner housing due to dropping the elevation of where the inlet filter sits. If it had stayed high like I originally intended it would not have been a problem, but I didn't go re-measure after I made some changes and it bit me. So I just took my snips and made a little adustment. I'll probably be tweaking the bracket anyway, so it didn't break my heart too much.

I also would have like to use a heavier gauge steel than 22 ga., but Ace didn't have 18 ga. and they didn't have snips strong enough to cut 16 ga. Not sure I would have wanted to try and work with 16 or 18 ga. with the limited resources I have right now anyway. A welder, as usual, would be nice to fill in the seams of these brackets and add to their rigidity, but we'll see how they do without it.

I though there was supposed to be a drip oiler on the suction side?

Maybe someday I'll do that, but right now I'm just going to use the fill plug on the compressor to add a little oil periodically (like after every trail run). That's one of the differences between the Sanden and the Aisin, the Sanden has a fill plug and the Aisin does not.
