Also, which companies sell them? web sites and pictures would be great.

I made a mount for mine which worked alright, but there wasnt enough adjustment in it.

Sorry, just another request.

I'd like info on a York mount (fab ideas/pics) for a 87 and newer SBC.

I can't help ya with the york brackets, but, I wonder why you wouldn't use a harris compressor on a gm engine, it would bolt on with factory brackets, they are fairly light and alot less bulky.

Harris Comp? What kind of volume are we talking about? Where can we look up specs for it? I am eventually going to add on board air on a '87 TPI 350 and I was wondering where to get a serpentine clutch and pulley for a york.

You can get the serpentine clutch and pulley from any Kenworth dealer. They are about $65 new. They carry many different rib sizes and pulley diameters. They also carry new Yorks.

H8,

Checked out my local Freightliner dealer, they wanted $100 for a serp.belt York clutch.

I wish they were only $65.

I'm still looking for one of the elusive early 80s 4banger Mustangs that had them.

There are several different sizes, they are the units that comes with a GM factory A/C system... I don't have any specs. , but I've used them for years. You need to add a seperate oiler plumbed into the intake side.

Try searching on ColoradoK5, somebody posted a pic of one they made there recently.

I'm running the original '83 long GM pump on mine, output is good, but I plan to switch to a York at some point to get around the oiling thing. I would like to see a volume comparison though, if its better I may just add an oiler to what I've got.

Here is the pic. The problem it that the pivot point is to close to the pully so there is little or no adjustment in it. I did have the Toyota P/S pump located in front of the thermostat housing and use that to adjust the belt. I have decided to find a chevy p/s pump to use in the stock location, so this leaves me without a way to tension the belt. Does anyone know of any tensioners that would work?

I made the mound from the stock Volvo mount. just cut and welded.

Edit: Forgot to post the pic. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I have made a bracket for a York on a SBC. It is adjustable using a turnbuckle and set up of be mounted on the driver side - above the PS pump.

After searching for a company that made them, I found most people said they made their own and a pre-fab unit would probably sell. So, I have 10 of them being made at a local fabricator. I'll try to get a picture posted later today of my "proto-type" which is on my Chevy powered FJ40.

Anyone interested in buying one? I'm thinking $150 - with all parts and hardware (bracket, braces, and turnbuckle w/hiem joints at the ends).

Later......Bruce in Redding, CA

I found one, and the SBC serpentine belt is too wide for the mustang york clutch. pissed me off to say the least... I really wanted a york, but I use my Harris / GM R4 compressor. check out my writeup at http://s10-4x4.com/OnBoardAir/

There was an add in one of the recent rags (Peterson's maybe) for a York OBA system for a SBC. Might be worth looking at.

Try the tensioner for a mid-70's Ford a/c belt. They bolt to a flat plate (which you can weld onto your York bracket at a 90 degree angle) and just have one bolt. The pulley is offset and the adjustment is made by camming the tensioner out against the belt with an end wrench, then tighteneng that one bolt. Simple and effective, looks like a good bet for your setup.
