Need info

Okay so I have been doing research on changing my A/C pump into on board air. I am still unsure of doing this mod or not my A/C works great however in the PNW probably will not get used as much as California so leaning towards on board air. Just hope my sisy dogs can handel the heat.
I need to know where I can shop for all the parts I will need. things like an oil mister, convelesing oil seperator and pressure switch to name a few.

Thanks for info Jason

Re: Need info

I dont know what kind of places you guys have over there but any type of air compressor shop should have everything you need. Just use the auto oiler for an pneumatic nail gun.

Re: Need info

Responded to your PM.

OBA is probably one of the best things I've done to my Jeep. However, if I had working AC beforehand I'd think twice about deleting it. Have you thought about building a CO2 setup? Cost would be pretty close to OBA.

Just another option to look at. If your set on OBA, there's plenty of us in the PDX area who can help.

Re: Need info

Thank you kind sir. I figured I would ask the masses for a bigger reponse. I will need OBA at some point to run my ARB. I do not like the fact that I will lose my A/C however as time goes by my Jeep becomes less street worthy and more offroad worthy. I also would like to pull the other useless crap out that goes along with A/C like the big condensor that blocks the air flow threw my radiator. I may even pull my cruize control as it has stopped working recently I may have to fix that one though I like having that option.

I got everything for my system from lowes and grainger. You could shop for the componants on ebay and maybe get them in a couple of days after ordering. Depending on the system you want to get a pressures switch that turns the compressor on about 20psi under the max psi for your system (if you run a tank.) And off at your max psi. I got mine from Grainger Industrial on swan island. You can use brass or galvanized. I used brass for its ability to disapate the heat better.
Anyways..... you can go to either a specialty supply shop, home depot, lowes, ace, or local hardware and plumbing store. The pressure swith will be more difficult. You can get them on ebay or online or get them here in town from Grainger. When your ready to do the install call me up and I'll give you a hand. Heck I'll even go with you to get the parts. You got my number. Give me a call

Re: Need info

Is anyone using there OBA for an ARB locker. I talked to a guy at Portland Comppressor and the guy told me for a convelesing water seperator to work properly it needs to be installed 25' down line from the pump otherwise it will not do its job. UH yeah thats not going to happen. I am concerned about putting moister into my front diff especialy since it will house a 900.00 dollar locker.

Thank you everyone for your rapid response and thanks Mojo for the links

Re: Need info

I got everything I needed at Home Depot except for the pressure switch that I ordered online and the air tank that I got from my local 4x4 shop. AC is more of a luxury than a necessity here in WA and wheeling rigs typically aren't known for luxury. I only used my AC for a couple months out of the year, but my windows roll down just fine and I use my OBA every time I go wheeling.

Dude, don't do it. Trust me, the a/c is worth it. Come summertime, all those muddy trails are DUSTY trails.

Up at TSF in August, this was me

And this was everybody else.

Re: Need info

I would just use my existing pump. I need to make sure that I can pull all the water out of this setup before I get crazy. I called Portland comppressor today and the guy told me I would need to install my convelesing water filter 25' from the pump. That is the only way it would work properly. I may have to do an ARB or VIA air.

Re: Need info

Well I can't seem to find the write up that I have seen in the past. If your interested in building a bracket that you can keep your A/C and have OBA then this might help. http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthrea...oard+air+a%2Fc
There is a really good write up on some were about this same set up but has allot more to it. This is what I'm going to do in the near future because I wan to keep my a/c for when I do go out when it's hot and dusty. Good luck man I hope this helps.
