AC compressor to air compressor...?

Not sure if this is the right section to post this, but....I'm interested in turning my stock AC compressor into an air compressor. I know the clutch is good, but I have no idea about the rest of the system; IE: does the system have freon, is the compressor still good etc...I guess I'l get to that point...I've got a pretty good idea how turning an AC compressor into an air compressor works. What I'm mainly looking for is mounting ideas, 'cause the compressor needs to be rotated so the head faces up....

This has been done numerous times. Have you searched the site? There's lots of good info to be found.

I did the Sanden on my XJ as per the article in JP a couple of years ago. Has worked out just fine for what I need.

Sounds like you are using a York. Are you also keeping the a/c system? There are pictures of brackets for dual compressors around here. If you are only running one York, you can use the stock mount, pull off the clutch, unbolt the compressor from the mount rotate it and bolt it back up to the stock mount. I used fittings to go to npt from kilby. Nice but expensive. I also used an air compressor filter on the intake. Plumbed it all with hydraulic hose. It works really good.
