View Full Version : OBA questions
05-07-2003, 07:13 AM
I'm setting up my GW with on board air, can anybody point me out to a usefull thread or website for info on converting a Sanden? The main problem I'm having right now is finding info on inline oilers, also will a portable tank rated @ 125 PSI work for this aplication? Looks like one will fir perfectly where the spare tire was.

check this out:
don't have OBA yet, so can't help you with the specifics, but this site is pretty good.

125 psi tank should be fine, that's what mine is. Just set your pressure switch at 115or so, otherwise the release valve will go off in the tank before the compressor shuts off. The above link is very good and probably includes the sanden.
One more question...what size air tank is recommended for using a York to run power tools. Obviously, bigger si better, but what is the minimum. Also, what psi-range do air tools function in best?

Depends on the power tool. An impact wrench will use more than a air rachet. There was a great thread about this a while ago.
Where can I get a good solinoid to operate my shocks and hopefully one day operate my ARB.

see ebay item # 2402670744 . its the tank I bought. It may be overdoing it - rated at 500psi - but I take comfort in in that kinda thing. The seller said he had a few more (2 months ago). I put mine in the spare tire spot underneath. It fits ok in my opinion, I can measure it out if ya like. I am lifted 4" in the back though. Compared to th 2.5gal tanks on oba.com its a pretty good deal and at that psi rating its not your ordinary tin can. I believe these tanks are used for your funky hydraulics on lowriders. Additionally they come from a US manufacturer which makes me feel little better as well.
Thanks loborph....I saw that ebay item B4.....they look high quality...500psi oughta be enough for air tools eh? ;)
