yes, absolutely everything including clamps and he even gives you a coiled airhose with an air chuck, all the fittings and plugs for the open holes in the manifold

This is a great write up. Could you include what needs to be done to the AC pump for controling it. Also what kind of hose and parts are needed to hook up to the pump?

For Project Blu (didn't oringally have AC and is a 85 truck), we got a AC switch from the wrecking yard and plug it into the factory harness. Then we had to jumper one wire behind the dash since the "AC contorl" was not there and then you just plug the AC compressor into the factory harness under the hood. your you could just wiring in a 12V+ fused toggle switch to the magnetic clutch.

As for adapting the AC Pump for barb fittings, I just weld a steel fitting to the AC Pump hose adapter plate/bracket, thus turning it into say 3/8 npt and then I just screw in barb fittings and your set to go.

I use Parker Push Lock hose. The hose has this printed on it: PARKER PUSH-LOK 801-6 WP 1.7 MPa (250 PSI) - 10mm (3/8) X 1F 83QO2. The cost on it is around $1.14/ft thru my work so retail its probably a bit more since they buy it in bulk from a hose supplier. Basically its industrial hose and Pete and I have had NO problems with it, so thats why I'm using it.

For the hose.......... just take it to a hydro shop that can make hoses and have them cut the condenser fitting off and crimp a 1/2 npt fitting on it. Way better than hose clamps :)


wow, this is an old post...... I now have the same filter, my dust mask one broke

Ok went looking for the stuff last night with out much luck. (home depot sucks for this stuff) So my next closest are Grainger or Lowe's I have never been into either store (sheltered life) my question is at Grainger can you buy things single if you go in or do you still have to buy packages of 10? Anyone been into Lowe's do they have a good selection of brass fittings so I can do this with one stop?

did you look in the plumbing section of home depot? i was just in my local HD yesterday and bought a lot of 1/4 and 1/8 fittings to plumb my OBA. Even my local OSH has a large selection. you wont find push fittings but all the normal npt stuff will be there. THen for the regulator, filters or couplers you will need to go to the tool section.

If you use the stock A/C button on the dash, you need to put in a jumper wire on the "Low pressure A/C switch". This switch stops the A/C pump from functioning in the event there is no freon in the system. The jumper wire bypasses that process. The connector to this switch is found behind the glove box. See Pic. So that is all you need to do for the factory A/C button to work for the on board air. Also be sure to turn the fan to the on position just like you would if you were using the A/C.

Next, you unplug the the A/C pump clutch power wire and wire the Regulator in between the two wires. I went to the recking yard and got the same connectors of another toy so I didn't have to cut the wires. I just ran the wires and plug them into my connectors that were already there.

Clutch Power wire ------- pressure regulator --------- wire to the A/C clutch.

The hoses are stock A/C hoses with the ends cut off. I picked up some A/C hoses so I woundn't have to cut mine.

You have to disconnect the plug and insert the jumper wire. The green wire with the yellow tape on it in the pic above is your jumper wire. It is just wire with two male wire connectors on it. Let me know if you have any other questions. You can also get fittings here http://www.onboardair.com, however I did get mine at a local air compressor store.

Ok here is my newbie ??, I'm kinda new to the Yota world, I have a 94' yota w/o a/c what exactly do I need to put OBA on it besides- a/c comp, brackets, and basically everything included in Front Range Offroads kit. Also can I just run a switched/fused hot wire to the compressor for power or do I need somethin else to power it.

Rollin33s - read this site over and it should answer all your questions. http://www.onboardair.com and the TOY FAQ. After that then you know the terminology for searching.... try that some and then if you can't find your answer, try posting a specific question......

For that I would go with the york or something similiar to that. I am using the stock AC pump because I have it and havent used AC in years so I know I wont miss it.

Thanks for supplying the missing info.


Rick glad to see you put this into the Toy Faq.

My setup is somewhat similar, but to eliminate the heat problem I simply used the output line from the condensing coil instead of coming directly from the compressor and the air arrives at my coalescing filter (that separates the oil from the air) nice and cool...

Then (at least supposedly) the oil drips down to the bottom of the bowl on the filter where there is a schrader valve that, shall we say, leaks just slightly and allows the oil to go back into the intake line for the compressor.

dave'z kit is legit, I've got it, and it comes with all the goods needed to make a working system, give Dave a call to get all the answers you want.

the only stuff you'll need to pick up is some heater hose, and extra fittings to suit your installation. you T in to the engine air intake as to basically piggyback on the engine air filter, the in-line oiler goes in before the compressor, i slipped 3/8" hose in to 5/8" to make a reducer for the inline oiler. i'll get you a picture tomorrow.

connections to the a/c compressor are by the stock hoses, you have to cut the aluminum collar the holds the hose on to the metric connection (there's a name for it but i can't recall), then you just slip either the rubber heater hose (intake) or the 3/8" air line (discharge) and use a hose clamp to make the connection.

discharge goes to the tank under the bed, i put the pressure switch back there. then made some simple brackets to put the air chucks where i wanted.

wiring is extremely simple. fused power to a switch in the cab, then to the pressure switch, then to the a/c clutch and ground.

i'll get some pictures tomorrow evening if you'd like.
