The bus we just got had the air conditioning compressor go out and was removed prior to our purchase. This York compressor just does compressed air or can it do air conditioning as well? Maybe a silly question. Thank you for this thread.

Yorks are air conditioning compressors. They just happen to be self-oiling, so they work really well for compressed air, too.

So can it be used as both or just one or the other?

One or the other. Air conditioning uses a refrigerant gas (R12, R134A, etc.), not air, and is a closed system.

Correct.

If you want both, you need two compressors.

Some buses did come with brackets to run two compressors side by side.

"I" have one of these in a 26 Uhaul. The previous owner put an m style quick connect on it so I'm good to go!

So I guess, besides busses, old Uhaul trucks are a good place to look for these.
They are used to run air bags that raise and lower the floor.
I don't have air breaks, so I'm temped to install one of these for onboard air.
My positive pressure water system might just be a reality....

Many 3 ton and larger, MDT and HDT trucks use them for their air conditioning system compressors.
