John, with your capability to run an air compressor belt driven via the engine, then I would suggest that you look at setting up and using an ex-aircon compressor. You should be able to pick one up for next to nothing, so you'll save heaps of $'s.

Thanks Rod, but I don't think that I have the room to fit an air con compressor. It was my first choice. I am looking for smaller a/c compressors at the moment. Still interested in Magnum though.

Most a/c compressors are lubricated by the freon gas in the a/c system. by running one as a tyre compressor you risk siezing it unless you fit an inline lubrication and oil recycling system. Basically this injects lubricant into the air intake, and then filters it out of the air outlet before it reaches your tyres. It can be set up to recycle the oil, so you don't use too much, but unless you're running air tools or pumping up your tyres a hell of a lot, you shouldn't use much oil anyway. Cheers, Alex.

Matt. So what! If you've got $350 plus plus plus to waste then go for it. I've ran an aircon compressor as an air pump (into a tank to 140psi) for the last 6 years, its never been a problem. Every now and then I give the compressor a couple of drops of teflon (engine oil additive).

What are you driving. I have an NL Pajero and have very little space in the engine bay and also want to run A/C compressor, had a thought today of rigging up a duplex pulley system off the fan belt and then offsetting the compressor where there is space available. what do you think about that. regards Matt

Matt, haven't seen under a Pajero bonnet so don't have a clue. The info I have regards air con compressor is: Corona RT104, may be hard to find but is a twin piston pump with a sump so no problems with oil. Maybe easy to mount maybe not. Best of luck. John.
