Thanks guys. The gauge on the rear is there to show tank pressure. It's meant to be an "at a glance" way of seeing what the pressure in the tank is. The alternative would be to put something in the cab, but this just seemed simpler.

Thanks Jeff, I'll stop by Tipco and grab a few of those covers

I'm going to try and find a 45 degree 1/4" NPT fitting to point the universal coupler away from the tub

Yes, I am definitely going to need a new fitting for the outlet side of the compressor to run 3/8" hose.

Charles, I am definitely looking forward to using it on the trail at Rausch! You'll be able to see what I mean by belt flapping.

I'm also tempted to bring along a small sandblasting gun and do impromptu rust removal for people

Ed, mine flaps around like a wet noodle as well. It only does it at idle but once you bring the RPM's up it looks tight and right. I talked to John B about this and his does the same. I've yet to do it but John made a little protection wrap for the lower radiator hose that sits right below your York unit on the off chance the belt hits it. I believe he's been running his for a couple of years with no issues.

An idler/tensioner on the non tensioned side would be the best solution. I only use my when filling tires or running air tools. If you leave it on all the time for lockers or something, it might be a good idea to have the idler. When the compressor is off, it is fine. The stock AC does have an idler that mounts from the timing pin access plate that might work. They are probably hard to find though...

Ahh, thanks red! That's the term I was looking for. idler pulleys are much cheaper than looking for tensioner pulleys.

Thanks Chris, it's good to know that others are suffering from the same issue. As you say it doesn't seem to be a problem other than being visually disconcerting. I don't plan to run the compressor continuously unless the vehicle is stopped and tires are being inflated/tools are being used/things are being painted.

I'm almost tempted to make an ABEC5 skatewheel tensioner like I did on a minibike I built years ago with my little brother. It is cheap and provides the necessary functionality.

Davis did this mod on his truck a few years back and then removed it when he switched the front cover to the serpentine setup. I am just starting this on my 94 and will try to remember to take a bunch of photos as I go but I am normally terrible at that! I can tell you that 3.9 has the benefit of a near perfect alignment of the pulleys on the water pump with the pulleys on the compressor with the York sitting flat against the face of the cylinder head but it also does not lend itself to a pivot mount like the TDI guys normally run with. I am planning to use a fixed mount for the compressor and an idler pulley (hopefully incorporating an alternator tensioner)

If you do this, would you mind documenting the specs/dimensions for the fixed mount? The mounting plate is the secret sauce and if you want to sell one, it's worth it to me not to have to work out the dimensions on my own, especially since I don't weld.
