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... :rock:

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...

Any updates on that OBA system?

Is it still working?
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.
