More like 10 min. I would go the York compressor direction but they are
butt ugly sitting on top of the engine.
I think I might put a 120-150 psi pressure switch on it instead of the
150-180 that it came with and see how it does. I don't need 180psi as light as this thing is.
There was a post somewhere that described mounting it in the bed and driving it off a starter motor....see If I can find it....

That's interesting. I wonder what the rpm on one of those
starters would be?
I know a guy in Texas that mounted one on a service truck
under the bed and ran it off the drive shaft by putting a pulley
on it.
I may do something like this if I can't live with the electric
pump.

I agree on the uglyness... lol I decided to go with a Sarden (Sanden) on mine, they are smaller and a little easier on the eye, not too bad to maintain either. just an idea... I was going to go with a Viar until I looks at the price and was like I could replace my Sarden 6 times before I got that much $$$ into it.

I guess I'll make do with what I've got for now since the money's
already spent. But I'm going to do something different down the
road.

Hind sight being 20/20 I should have done some homework.

I totally feel you on the 'doing homework ' I just saw another way to chop a rounded top that would save me probably 20-30 hours of labor, but its already cut now......

Default Success

I got the rear corner windows installed today. After breaking one and
having to get a second set of rubber seals. More wasted money. I never dreamed that this would turn into such an ordeal. But I do like the view.
