Any thoughts on what works on a GQ 4.2 petrol. I have twin air lockers but the air compressor died. It was an electric one - not ARB. I have been told ARB ones do not last long when used consistantly. To my knowledge a belt driven one will not fit unless I get rid of the air con (as if). YOur suggestions would be well appreciated.

Thanks Red Rover

I thought about an endless air - but aparently the only place it can go is where the air con compressor goes - and I am not getting rid of that. I had a magnum which was great - but cant find anywhere to mount it - BUGGER because belt driven was definitely to go

Thanks Red Rover

Jump on the GQ list, and ask Nick Walker. He runs 4 truck air tanks on his GQ to run lockers, also has air outlets on each corner, can pump up 4 35's without starting compressor from FA to 37psi...

Red Rover,
I have an ARB compressor, I got this before the lockers arrived, I've used the compressor quite a bit and it is still in good condition. I have the compressor under the passengers seat, this may help the life expectancy. I contemplated the truck air tank but was advised against using in conjunction with the ARB compressor. This is where I'm at at the present. I would be more tempted to use a belt driven compressor and a truck air tank, this would fit beter together, my opinions as usual. Keep the shiny side up

My cheap 12v was solid mounted to the floor with a custom air tank. I wonder why they advised against the air tank, just out of interest
Thanks Red Rover

I have a 4.2 Patrol deasel
and mounted a new big red compressor
under the bonnet. I let the the tires down to about 15 lbs.
Then pumped all 4 up to 44lbs without stopping.
Compressor didn't get to hot so I was happy.
Then after a trip down the road for a few hours I
thought I should have a look at my work.
The compressor was almost to hot to touch.
The engine heat put more heat into it then
pumping up the tires.
How long do you thing my pump will last under the bonnet.
I mounted it near the coolent overflow containers.
