I was wondering if anybody has installed or had experience with "Endless Air" which uses an air-conditioning style compressor. In theory it sounds pretty good runs off the engine uses very little battery power and apparently supplies much more volume then any of the electric type of compressors currently available.

Do they work?
Are they hard to install?
Can they run lockers?
Are there any drawbacks?

Cheers
Jeff

Wolfie I agree, but I don't think that what he meant.

Yes. They are bloody magnificent compared to any of the 12 volt stuff. I didn't use endless air, but a second hand air conditioner unit. Took two of us 2 days to fit, alot of stuffing around with the brackets and lining up pulleys etc. Probably spent 1 day just planning the setup. Once working, it's terrific. Pumps up a 16" tyre to 40 psi in a minute. All 4 tyres in 5. A few tips though. The A/C pump requires lubrication, so a grease nipple has to be fitted. Endless Air have modified theirs to run dry bearings. A/C pumps are designed to run at upto 3000 psi and generate high and temperatures so high pressure hoses and fittings are needed. We kept blowing normal air hoses and ended up using A/C hosing and decent air tanks to dissipate the heat. It took a while to sort out the bugs, but the unit does a magnificent job. I have used it to pump up truck and tractor tyres - no worries. You can even spray paint with it if you wish. The whole exercise wasn't cheap, but well worthwhile. A word of caution. The Endless Air job is only half the solution. You still need brackets, belt, a tank, pressure switch and fittings. If you want to know more, leave your email address, and I can send a heap of photos.

Most compressor specialst retailers can fit you out with all the fittings you need. But be warned. Most new cars do not have the room for an extra air compressor, and if they do, finding somewhere to run another fan belt is impossible.

A mate of mine had one on an FJ60. It worked MINT.

Rod W's got an old air con compressor on his Troopy, runs brilliantly. If you fit an air tank you can deffinatally run lockers.
