Default Re: New project, it's gonna get strange

automan, you can use the air compressor from the v-12. you need several things in order to use it. First, you need the bracket the compressor mounts on. Second, you must fabricate an oil pressure line to the back of the compressor to furnish lubrication, and a drain line to return oil back into the crankcase of the engine. Third, you will need a compressor discharge line( a steel braided teflon line with the right fittings fixed to the ends) an air govenor (D-2 type), and a air resavoir from a big truck. plumb the lines to the appropriate ports, run the engine and the govenor will activate the unloaders in the compressor at 120-125psi. I would be happy to help with a general line diagram when you get the system installed.
