Yup, just take the compressor and the hoses. Not much else worth taking. If the vehicle it's going into doesn't have a factory bracket that will work with your York, also take the bracket from the Volvo just in case it can be adapted to work in the destination vehicle.

I just mounted my York last night after fixing its valves. For my Jeep I had to make my own bracket and idler pulley mount.

hey larry could i take a look at your setup sometime later on.. before i actually mount mine on..
i think my mounting should be easier since i have chevy 350 and there is shi*load of brackets for it

The York kicks ass....

I have had mine for about 2.5 years with no problems.

I want another one to put in our Explorer. I don't wheel the Exploder but I think onboard air would be handy in any vehicle (for camping, etc, etc).

I just can't convince the wife to let me mount a York in our Civic :p

this is a pic of my bracket that i use to mount my 10" stroke york in my jeep. it is fully adjustable vertically so you can ensure you have a tight v-belt. contact my off line if you want more info on them.
