Used a york compressor from ebay or Amazon as there weren't any available for easy pick up from local used parts yard. . There are a couple long threads on the York/OBA that has plenty to read Not all of it is specific to the York but there is enough there to get a good idea. Wits' End York On-Board-Air Schematic and Discussion and Bringing back the York OBA bracket and pulley kit!.

The install is prettty straight forward when using the kit from WitsEnd aka @NLXTACY. Before the manifold was shipped Joey even gave me a call to ask which electical connector was on my York pump and matched the conncector on his end to make it plug and play. That is service:clap:. In brief summary of the install, the bracke just bolts in place to the engine block, bolt in the york to the bracket, replace the fan belt pully with the provided pully which allows for an extra belt, re install the fan belts and the belt to the york, add the fittings to the compressor and if you go with the suggested air source being the pre-filtered air from the air cleaner than there are some holes to drill in the air filter box. The manifold installs with 2 existing bolts on the fender. Wire up the electrical and route your air lines and you've got air :cool:. Not sure the kits are still available but maybe they are or perhaps he'll do another run when enough interest builds again.

thanks for the feedback 👍🏻
and more kits available starting on Wed.

Replaced the channel runs and belt weatherstrip on the front doors. Bought some weathertech floor mats and put those in. Just ordered front and rear seat covers from Precisionfit. Waiting on the samples for the carpet from stock interiors next. Probably try to knock that all out over a weekend once it arrives.

I took all that plastidip stuff off my wheels and painted them bronze and, in person, they turned out better than I expected. Pics make them look a little gold but they aren't. And, I wouldn't say I half-assed it. More like 3/4 assed if that means I tried harder but still had a few runs/blemishes. 7 wheels total (2 for a trailer) and I got a little impatient at the end.
Also replaced that steering shaft grommet that was toast 10 years ago.
Did the egr test plug fix and changed the oil. Cleaned out the breather tubes on the axles. Put a little more grease in the balls.
Saw a few things under the Cruiser that will need addressing in the future probably but for now is ok.
A few months back, I installed a dual battery system. And somewhere along the way I put in a Delta shifter console.
That is about it I guess. We are headed to Big Bend in a few weeks.

Box Rocket, I thought I followed your suggestions on the paint. My memory may be off though. I used Rustoleum primer, gloss black, the bronze, then clear coat.
The bronze is Duplicolor HWP105 Bronze.
Amazon was the source.
Nice. So you sprayed them with a black base coat first, then the bronze over the top? I dig it.
