Ok this is my first write-up so bear with me, If I left anything out let me know and if you need any other photos feel free to ask
After recently placing an order for a sPOD I wanted to have some type of on board air system that I could use to fill up/down my tires and be able to connect it to the air gauge. After asking around for a little Im pretty sure it was JKO member JohnnyWalker that turned me in the direction of this:
So I sent a few PMs back and forth with JKO vendor Woods (Brett). He is incredibly knowledgeable and answered every single one of my questions very quickly and was very helpful in the whole process. Brett is a fantastic guy to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
So when I first received the box I was a little nervous going into this install all by myself, I had never really played with compressors or wiring. Brett included EVERYTHING I needed to make it easy. The night I got the package I followed every step in these videos, They were really easy to understand and It took me about an hour:
The next morning I woke up and went into my dads shop and found an empty mechanic's bay. When I started unpacking everything that I was about to start wiring all the mechanics laughed at me and told me I'd never be able to install this by myself(I'm 17). Well I just went to work and heres where I started:
Now the compressor bracket wraps around the master cylinder from the bottom, So I unbolted the passenger and driver side and hooked the bracket in, then reattached the nuts, On the other end it connects to where the sPOD bolts up so I simply removed the bolt and then reapplyed it with the bracket.
The only part that I mildly struggled with was the wiring, I was so unsure about what to do seeing how I connect it to the sPOD and not an external switch. So heres how you wire it with an sPOD:
Connect to load or compressor wire label-ran a connector to it and the other end connected to the sPOD
connect to trigger/switch positive label Red direct from compressor goes into label "connect to fused positive power source" the other end connects to sPOD
Connected black ground straight from compressor to spod as well as black circular wire connected to manifold
On the manifold the attachements go as follows from top to bottom:
Pressure release valve
Pressure Switch Relay
sPOD Air Gauge
Drivers Side air coupler
Air Tank Line
For now on the air tank I have connected like this:
Top - Manifold to air tank line
Sides- all are capped except for the passanger side air coupler line
Bottom- Bleeder valve
The air tank is a VERY straight forward install, however you have to make sure that the tank is rotated upwards very close to the fan and watch out that all lines are pipeline taped and away from the belt.
Ive used this for a couple weeks and it really is a nice system is exactly what im looking for, Once again if you have any other questions feel free to ask. Also Contact Woods here on JKO, he is a vendor is extremely easy to work with
