LR Airtank fitted for compressor install .

I have fitted a LR air reciever tank on the other side (drivers side UK cars) for my compressor.

The tank is supplied with brackets ..unfortuantly they are for the wrong side of the car .

Here's how

Thats is so far ..awaiting on compressor fittings so i plumb it all in .

Its designed so i can lift it in without assistance. Front bracket fits over the top of the chassis mount ..this then rests there while you line the back up ..easy peasy Thumbs Up

Tank is nicely out of the way ..and looks factory fitted Laughing .I am stuggling for room in my D3 thats why i went down this route

Looks like a neat job there Wiggs Thumbs Up

How many litres capacity is the D3 tank? is this just for tyre inflation or are you going to run air tools off it?

9 litres ( 550ci ) or 1.97 gal

Mainly air blower for cleaning out bits of pipe and pressure relief valves at work .Airline for tyres too.

Not sure it will be any good for air tools .

Rat Packs. MMMMM Illegal to sell on or remove from any mil trg area. All unused rations have to be returned to the QM at the end of every ex.
But they do make good eating on a weekend away Whistle Whistle

Hi Wiggs, sorry, really digging up a really old thread here.

This is a great idea and I've been planning to do this on my D4 for ages. I was waiting for a reasonably priced reservoir which I've now bought so I'm just getting around to it now.

Could I ask you how you ended up plumbing this in ? I have a compressor mounted in my driver's side battery box (detailed here: https://www.aulro.com/afvb/l319-discovery-...up-4.html)

As the LR reservoir has only one inlet/outlet it's a little different to a more usual setup with air in from the compressor on one port and air out on another port. Thought I'd ask how you did it before inventing my own setup.

Thanks,
David
