YORK Look in volvos, old AMC's, Fords, and look in early 4cyl mustangs for ones with serpentine belts if you need them.

York is best, but Sanden works ok too if you oil it every now and then. There are detaield info on both installations in the tech section of my siteShortWheelbase.com

Yorks are overrated.

Sandens will produce just as much air.

Some Sandens do produce almost as much air as a York but the York's bigger advantage is that it has an internal oil sump which means it doesn't need an external source of oil.

The largest air capacity York model that has the proper bolt-on suction and exhaust fittings has a flange-type head is the F210R or F210L. The 'R' and 'L' suffixes simply indicate which side, right or left, the suction is on. Depending on the junkyard, they can have shelves full of York compressor and an F210R can be priced anywhere from $20 to maybe $100 if they're ripping you off. I paid $40 for mine and it was in very good condition. They can be found on old Fords, Volvos, Mercurys, but often you don't even need to know since they'll just have them stored separately.

One can easily say the reverse... some Yorks produce almost as much air as a Sanden. There are various models of each compressor.

There are guys who have been running Sandens for years now with only a quick squirt of oil into the compressor after every few uses (if that).... no external oil source. The york's internal oil isnt much of an advantage.

The York is way bulky and heavy. It also generates a lot of heat. Im not saying it's a POS. Im just saying that there is no reason to justify the hype surrounding the York compressor.

If your running a GM motor, an A-6 is the way to go, seeing it came on the GMs, it's smaller then the most, has an oil sump, high psi and volume, and cheap. Been using them for years and they've always worked great.

The York is the way to go if you are into having a sump. Personally I think they are to much of a pain to mount because of their size and shape. Porshe and Vlks also use them in the '70s.

I plan to use a GM compressor for mine becaus eI already have the brakets and pulleys for it on the engine. I was going to plum the inlet of the pump to the breather system on the engine for oiling. This does several things, it oils the pump (I think it should be enough...any thoughts?), and it pulls a vacum on the crankcase. Belive it or not this will help performance and prevent the oil from becoming as airated. It is also suposed to be better on seals. Not to mention no more blow by or oil overboard. Race car guys have been doing this for a while now and like it.

All you need then is a drier to "de-oil" the air. Some guys will tell you about how great it is for oiling your toold but it will eventually fill your tank with oil. All the oil settles out of the air in the tank, Oilers only work on tools is if they are after the tank.

You can get your York from any Big Rig junk yard, also. They are still the compressor of choice on new kenworths, and other big rigs, due to there high performance abilities at low RPMs. The rotaries have the ability to make as much air as the York at higher RPMs, but the York produces more volume per revolution than even an A6(per the Climate Air literature), however a york maxes out at about 2000 rpms.
As far as the comment that you cant oil your tools with blow-by oil, well...think again. I have freinds who put there tool connection at the bottom of the tank, to draw off the pooling oil in the reservoir, and run their tire air up connection off of the top of the tank to reduce oil being introduced into the tires.
York or Rotary, theyre all good, but there are very few down sides to a York, if its bulky size is possible in your application,(it sure fits nicely onto a Mustang 5.0). And inflates a 36x12.50 SX tire from 6psi to 28 psi in under 90 seconds at 800 rpms.
