Hmmm...could this be the 392 build from hell?

Another tip regarding the cci/york compressor. Your oem unit used "roto-lok" ports for the suction (low pressure) and discharge (high pressure) connections. In order to be able to keep those fittings and hose assemblies, a replacement compressor needs to be the same style. And depending upon when your vehicle was actually manufactured, it will either have 1/4 flare fittings with manual service valves (frontseat/midseat/backseat, or the later schraeder valve service fittings (also 1/4" flare) mounted to the roto-lok ports.

Those compressors were/are also available with two other style ports which cannot be used with the roto-lok fittings, if ya used one of those, you would have to have a new hose set made up with the correct mounting pads.

I'm tossing this out because you will find some "bargain price" versions of those compressors out there but they will most likely not have the correct ports for your existing hose set.

There are also differences as to what side the suction and discharge ports are located on, and that is dependent upon if the compressor is stood up or laid down. In the case of the sii, the compressor of course lays down. I say this so that ya don't end up with the wrong compressor! Ya don't wanna have to tear apart a new unit and move the head and valve plate around!

Good to hear it is doing what you wanted.. Yes a tach is a very good idea. Rpm is really the only thing you have to be concerned with.

Yes, this very well could be the 392 in question.
Michael,
hahaha!!!
And thanks for the extra details. There is no worse feeling as when you think you did all the right reseasrch and you still go at it wrong. I'm finding that you cannot get too much info on these old trucks.
If it weren't for gurus like you and Robert, guys like me would continue to learn the hard ( and somtimes expensive) way. And maby end up giving up all together.
I really appreciate you guys being involved and helping out the IH community.
John

Google R12 to R134 retrofit
You could add 134 but it might just leak out overnight. Unless you have updated the o-rings.
Amazon has port converter for $9
