Wow thats some a/c pump!. I didnt know what to do with my serp belt having the a/c pump with the engine. i didnt want to go and gut it, so i have plumbed some fittings into the stock pump to run air in / out. I was going to use this pump to pump up my tyres leaving the beach. I know i have to keep it lubbed every now and then, i was even thinking of hooking up a drip/suction feed bottle like flash lube set up for lube then run through a water/oil seperator before it goes into my tyres.
  What is the reason for the larger york set? will my stock a/c with my set up die quickly? you guys got me thinking about a tank but, like my air compressor at home, the pump could be swithed on as it needs it and always have a tank full of air under the back. But Not good for water crossings maybe? with a tank full of compressed air might be like a big bouy?

Yeah, you're probably going to overheat/seize your stock air compressor without having an inline lubrication system.

The York compressor is self-lubricating and has its own reservoir. It pumps out near 7 CFM at 2K RPM's from what I've been told. If you know alot about air compressors, that's a damn decent deal for the price. The York compressor does need an oil filter after the pump, alot escapes apparently.

I don't think that you could fit a large enough tank to make it adversely affect your balance. Besides, you could probably purge the tank first anyways.
