There was company that used to make a kit to fit it under the stock AC compressor I think. This is going back a long way like 99 or 2000 if I recall, here are two posts on the old site pertaining to using the York, I seem to remember someone figured out how to get one in under the stock ac but mabee I am wrong.

Both!
Unfortunately, two different products by two different companies, with the same name!

The engine-driven one was made by Therold industries (760) 356-4516 for the 3.9 V8 only (up to '95 model)

The Electric Ready Air is made by Automatic Controls Technology - tel: (800) 982-0409). They have two models:
- the 2 stage, 1/2 hp gives 1.1 cfm @ 175 psi, continuous duty! but it is big 'n' expensive (18x12x8, 47 lbs, about $1200) and sucks 42 amps
- the 1/3 hp single stage gives 1 cfm @ 120 psi, continuous duty. It is more reasonable size, but still pretty big (34 lbs, 9" w, 7" h, 14" l) and costs about $600.

FAQ that!

===============
A while back I posted pics of my Ready Air installation. I found that (at least here in Texas) I was getting too much oil (from the compressor) and water (from the humidity) in my air line for airing up tires. In fact, I could drain out a good cup full of emulsion from the tank after a weekend of use (no knowing how much was getting into the tires, but they should be real slick 'n' easy to pop off the rims! Anyway, to get round this, I assembled a H-manifold (after a few false starts in the prototype stage!) which is as tidy as I could make it. It has an inlet and three outlets:

Filtered max pressure (180 psi) with a variable flow control for airing tires, air beds, rubber duckies
Regulated, filtered air (currently set at 90 psi) for ARB actuation (or othe low pressure/clean air applications).
Regulated oiled air for running air tools (impact wrench air socket, drill, grinder).

I posted pics and details on the extreme site:

I am running the York on my v-belt set up--I had to design and make a compressor bracket that located the pulley in line, but that was all it took. Same scenario for you--just figure a way to put the pulley centered on your serp belt--there are two standard pulleys commonly available for the York, both a V-belt and a Serp. Local junk yard you should be able to find one--just look in mercedes and volvos. The clutch magneto or whatever that wire wound part is is the same for both parts. Common Timken Bearing, so if it spins rough, just replace that. You could just convert a sanden style, requires a few more mods and is less powerful but it would mate up easier.

That bracket looks like a York-to-Sanden conversion. I'm looking for a bracket to mount a York in my 94 NAS in place of the stock AC compressor.

York compressors were used in early Range Rover applications (I just took one of an '84). There is a genuine part that will bolt right to your passenger side location. Nice cast bracket.

Any thoughts/experience or places to direct me to, for trying to add a York, to a D-90, without removing a/c compressor?

Just keep in mind that the York and Sanden are two very different compressors. To the best of my knowledge, you cannot run a York with stock AC.

Nice to see this post again. Would love to see a bracket for mounting the York on the 300Tdi in the stock location.
