I have been runing a York Compressor for 12 months, I used an ARB presure switch and wired it to the clutch so that the compressor would switch off at a 100psi. Also had an air tank I drained it once in 12 months and very little water came out.
The compressor has oil ports from the sump up to the intake. If you remove the head you will see them. You are suppose to block them off. But I didn't & had no problems up to date. There are two sorts of compressors one's horizontal and one vertical mounted.
As for the CFM not hundred % how much it flows but it will pump up 4 38's from 4pounds to 30pounds in about 6-7 mins. So bolt it on and pump away.

theres supposed to be a port in the front shaft seal area at the top of the housing which leads to the suction port and blocking this is supposed to reduce oil pumping without affecting compressor life.

thats true,
the hole that you need to plug is the one on the left when you are looking at the compressor with the shaft pointed at you.and standing vertical(thats the compressor and you) it sits at about 10 o'clock beneth the shaft seal plate.and apparently you don't have to do the one that sits at 2 o'clock.

this will explain it better

i have done the reasurch on them, and i found a medium stroke one, but it will not fit anywhere. i never found phisical measurements for the york a/c compressor. bugger. :rolleyes:
