I pulled both of my YORKs from volvos. Look for the OLD (78 or so) volvo wagons.

You want a compressor with 10R or 10L in the part #. Late 70s to early 80s Volvos have them and they have the double pulley which is versatile. If space is tight, try the York compact model 9L found on VW rabbits. It is a good idea to plug the oil passage that bleeds oil into the intake port so that it doesn't spit out so much oil. http://members.home.net/cglabe1/Air/OilFix.html

If space is tight, you can mount them on either side. It is BS that they have to be mounted upright. If you plug the oil hole they would spit out so much oil.

so when you are looking at the hole is it actually angled up out of that hole so the plug goes in straight, or is it going to end up somewhat cockeyed?
and also, depending on what they look like in real life i may end up looked at the compact model 9 as apposed to the 10, but will have to go see whats available first
they fit tens in toys so that is where i will probably be.

My York came from an early 80's Volkswagen, sorry not sure what model as it was already picked off the wreck when I got to the yard.

Yes, the hole is angled, so that the drill and tap can go straight in. The compact York on VW Rabbits is nice and is a lot lower than the full size model. Down load the service manual from the link I provided to get the actual dimensions. I think that a Rabbit York is a poifect combo for a wascally Mud Bunny.

After reading PinHead's write up on how to plug the oil passage I went to the bone yard and yanked one that looked newly rebuilt on a 77 Thunderbird... It's the big one, don't get one from a ford truck, they are the smaller ones..
I followed the driections on pinhead's write up and installed it on my truck after pulling the A-6 I had, and it works great..
BTW: Thanks for the article Pinhead, it's going to be nice not having to oil the thing everytime I want air.... <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">

I can't find my info that tells me the flow, SCFM @ 90psi. for the average York. Compairing it to my shop air compressure.

They don't have this info in the manual, but you can calculate it: The 10R or large York is 10 cubic inches in displacement. So it makes 10 cu in/rev. Divide by 1728 cu in/cu ft = 173 rev per Cu ft. At idle speed of 520 RPM, you will get 3 cu ft/min at zero pressure. Since atmospheric pressure is approx 15 PSI, you compress the volume 6-fold to get to 90 PSI. Output at 90 PSI would then be 0.5 cu/ft / min at idle. Rev it up to 3100 RPM and you get 3.0 cu ft/min at 90PSI. It is about like a good medium-sized home shop compressor. Good enough for pneumatic tools but not continuously.

i pulled a mini (SC209 model) from a VW cabriolet about '80 model, the thing fits perfectly horizotally across the top of a 2.5L TJ. not quite as much displacement as the 210 but it should be enough for me and blows away any 12V pump.
