Re: air compressor on 7.3 for onboard air.
I just fabbed a bracket & installed a York compressor on my second 99 in my sig about 2 weeks ago now. Mine is installed just to the drivers side of the alternator, so it is easy to get to. I had to reposition the battery and move the air intake around a little bit to get it to work perfectly. I mocked it up and adjusted the two idler pulleys I installed to get the setup to use the belt for a PSD with dual alternators, so it is a factory belt that can be easily found if there are problems, plus I keep the original single alt belt if the compressor or idlers lock up. I will try to snap some pics tomorrow when theres daylight and post them up.
So far, it worked great in test runs, I just am in the process now of setting up the bed and air tanks, lines, gauges, etc.
