    Engine Driven Times

    I'm not lookin for how fast your fill times are , but I just want to know what is the longest time you've ran it. I know they all get smokin hot, but I've got a pretty big tank and I just dont want to burn mine out. Even better if anyone knew what duty cycle they are. Thanks

    what kind of engine drivin are you talkin about?

    a York is an A/C compressor so id imagine you can run it for a LONG time with out fear of overheating.. i had the one in my truck on for about a half our by accident and it was just warm *the airline wasnt hooked up i just was fitting it and i left the switch on by accident*


    i dont know about other style ones.. but i think just about every kit uses a york except the AIM kits..

    Yeah I've got a york, but I'm thinkin that if it was hooked up to a tank it would get a lot hotter cause it has to work harder.

    Anyone else fry their york by overheating it?

    Your york wont over heat if properly oiled but it will get god damn hot. So hot it would burn your skin or melt plastic air line thats why you run hard line or steel braided off it, cause those fuckers get hot.

    They are 100% duty cycle, my buddy bagged91blazer or somethin like that on here runs 21 gallons of air and he is not affraid to hit switchs all day long. Just keep it oiled.
