i had heard of a conversion to turn your a/c unit into an OBA system. was wondering if anyone new anything about it(how, how much,psi?). only thing is i dont have my a/c anymore at all i replaced it with a home made bracket and idler pulley.

ive got a currie 9" with an arb should i do the above or would it be cheaper/better to just by a pump

98 XJ cylinder 5 speed

thanks for your input

I did a write up when I did mine but I dont know where it is.

However I have a Vi-air 325 compressor that I am thinking of selling. It worked fine for my OBA with a scuba tank for storage..

I couldnt run air tools but It would air up tires and I actually ran a air impact off of it to change a tire once..

Oh FYI the compressor will work wonderfully as an OBA but you will need to keep the pre oiler full and check it every time you use the compressor..

i know often times a compressor will have a shaft seal go bad, allowing the gas to leak out over time. Would a compressor with a bad seal work? I am sure you could find one at a junk yard for cheap, and it can take months for a seal leak to leak out the gas, so would it work for air? Just an idea to cheapen the project.
