Recently picked up a 4 set of buell horns for cheap, got them mounted and air lines ran. Needing a viair compressor or something similar, any one have anything that would work? Ill try to get pictures up later

Which ones?

You have a tank of valve yet? How much pressure you plan to run?

Porky is the one to talk to about these. He is god when it comes to horns.

Stick with viair for comps. Best ones out there imo.

Depends on your honking style. icon_smile.gif I had a lot of room in my truck, and like to build stuff... so I built a bracket and I am running a York 210 (same/similar pump as Oasis). It feeds my horns nicely. As long as the engine is running... my horns can blast. It will be REALLY loud for about 30 seconds of continuous use. Then the output drops a bit as my 3 gallon tank drains, and the system is at a "steady state" if you will.

Here is is on the bench:

Have fun, and make some scare videos and post them. icon_smile.gif

Cool compressor bracket dude! Engine driven compressors are great if you can get the oiler setup right

Thanks. :)

The York 210's have an internal crank case and does not require an inline oil supply. It does have some blow-by, but a coalescing filter pulls that out. I just have to check the oil level in the compressor crankcase every once in a while. I have been doing it every 3 months, and it only needs ~ 1cc of oil. :)

I really love that compressor. It can run air tools pretty much continuously, which is really nice for changing tires and filling up tubes to tow with the boat. icon_biggrin.gif

Buddy had a similar setup in an S10 but for airbags ... Gotta love engine power
