OBA with York - NOT engine driven...

Yet another superduty on board air project. EXCEPT I'm not hooking mine up to the serpentine drive. Instead its mated to a 12v winch motor. I'm putting this short thread together not as a write up, but to give people more ideas since OBA questions constantly come up.

Little parts list I have
*York and winch motor - Check!
*Air tanks - Two 3gallon tanks from ebay
*Winch solenoid - Ford brand from autozone
*120psi pressure switch - 90 on 120 off...Check
*water oil seperator - 3/8" inline...Check
*Check valve with unloader - Local truck parts place
*Various lines and fittings - Lowes is real close



I will be mounting everything on the outside of the frame rail. I have a long bed so LOTS of room

I'm not sure on the duty cycle, but here is a link to pretty much the same winch that I used the motor off of.

I decided to mounth the tanks underneather the bed in between the outside of the frame and fender well, right in front of the passenger rear tire...



I used 1/2" heater hose from napa that goes straight from the compressor, to my check valve with unloader, then into the tank. A lot of people say to use steel braided line or copper tubing since rubber hose will melt, but the hose has handled it so far.

Originally I had a 145psi pressure switch I was gonna use, but do to a wiring malfunction, I fried it a long with my toggle Another change I made was the warn solenoid I planned on using. The Warn solenoids are setup to use 2 solenoids for power, so instead I went to autozone and got a standard ford solenoid. Now I run a 120psi pressure switch with it.

My outputs on the tanks are 3/8", so I went and ebay and bought a "3/8 12v solenoid" for $30 and mounted it to one output and ran an air line to the exact opposite side, which is where my horn was mounted.


So far everything works great. I hit 120 psi from Zero in MAYBE a minute, probably more like 50sec.

It's been a few months, I know but do you hear the motor kick in and how did you mate the shafts up? I have a york long stroke and was figuring on mounting in the engine bay....Trying to figure the best way to mount this up is a little bit of a PITA.

It works awesome. Only problem is, that I never use it for what it was initially intended for. All I do is blast the horn!. I put air fittings and it airs up tires very very easily. I have 44" swampers on my Jeep and it airs them up no problem.
