More updated pics....

added a Taurus fan... this required the moving forward of the radiator, and moving the tranny cooler to the front, I used to have a pusher fan...


On High this fan will suck a cat through the radiator... start up draw is in the vicinity of 60 amps (starting right into high speed) though so it required a heavy duty 75 amp relay... I have that protected with a 60 AMP fuse... I am hoping I wont be blowing that, the low speed is auto controlled with a manual override for high speed. I figure I can hold the start up amps down if I only flip on the move from low to high. All lower pics are prior to looming.










on the left is the 3 way in cab switch, on the right is the 75 AMP Bosch relay from a Freightliner

The relays mounted (the relay on the right is a 50 amp temperature controlled relay for low speed)


and while Adam 99grandTJ was wiring it I got busy with a spray can... my jeep wants to be a Renegade II





Just need to add the grates into the Snout holes...

get it wired, and get the belt and it is useable... though I dont have it plumbed to the front and back yet, just to the top of the tank with a QD

I also need to paint it yet

I should have got the separate oiler/filter ... I need the filter directly after the york to catch the oil before the tank... and The oiler needs to be after the tank.

I need to see if I can separate my set, by the book it looks like I can, I just don't know how I would mount them.

I ran it up to 125PSI working load last night, and ran an impact with NO trouble what-so-ever we re-plumbed some things as I needed to move the location of my oiler in the mix, added a check valve and a second filter. I need to change out some clamps though... the ones I bought at Harbor freight are cheap crap and won't tighten enough I blew 2 lines right off. here is the final deal (minus painting) and I need to run the electrical into the in cab toggle switch yet. I also need to get the intake filter/muffler on -- though it isn't loud at all








also put in my new steering wheel last night... a little ricer like but i REALLY like it...

here are some vids... (pressure switch is jumped to the battery, toggle switch isn't hooked up yet) this is very impressive, keeps up with my air chisel AND my Impact, if I turned it off idle I am sure the VERY minimal drop off I see would go away.

It works fine, I have a leak in the hose that leads from the compressor to the tank though, it is a result of using a PVC air hose intended for roofing nailers (the blue hose in the pics)-- I never knew the differences in air hose before, and it could not handle the high temps of the air coming out of this compressor. You cannot use a sub-par line here. Haven't been out on the trail to use it though, but I used it to change a motorhome tire with the impact, and I used the air ratchet to separate a tranny and t-case I gave to Renegade II, worked very well.
