Re: ARB Compressor Install - a fun project

I like the look of that compressor. I'm still using an autobahn special, it is slow going. I'd love to setup a compressor with a tank. I remember someone installed one under the spare wheel well, that looked good.

I am going to build a cover for the compressor which will have the button mounted on it, as well as the connection for the air hose, so there will be no need to ever get to the actual compressor.
I also want to clean up the switches and wires around the fuse block.

Believe it or not, this little ARB compressor has a tank, It's that horizontal grey cylinder thing in front of the blue motor. It's only small but it does the job. When switched on, the compressor runs for a few seconds until the pressure cutout switch on the cylinder cuts out. When the nozzle is attached to the tyre valve releasing pressure, it cuts in again. My TJM stand alone el cheapo is rated at 72L/m max. This would be at no load. It falls away rapidly above about 30psi. The tiny ARB CKMP12 is rated at not much more at 87.2L/m no load but 66L/m at 29psi. I think that is what makes the difference. My daughter's temp spare was at 40psi and had to go to 60psi. The ARB was so quick I thought I was going to blow the tyre up. The compressor motor wasn't even warm.

Re: ARB Compressor Install - a fun project

Ok, I was wondering about that grey bit.... might have to look into one of those.

Re: ARB Compressor Install - a fun project

You can make anything into a tank, ive seen guys turn whole bullbars/rearbars/sliders into tanks. Use your imagination.

Re: ARB Compressor Install - a fun project

Had the same spot picked for my tank but sold the tank off since it was going to be a tight fit between the magnaflow inlet pipes
