belt driven on board air question

i am going to be doing a belt drive system for sure. i have a pair of viair 480s and well they suck to be quite frank.

i know lots of people use the york ac compressor but my problems with that is i do not want oil in my air at all. not even a little bit. i also want a compressor pump that will either feed off the engine oil, or reliability be able to contain its own oil with little to no consumption of it.

my question is this

why does no one seem to use an actual air compressor pump? removing the v belt pulley that would go to the electric motor and replace it with an ac clutch pulley

places like northern tool and harbor freight has some cheaper than you can find a used york. i just don't see why this hasn't been done and would like some other peoples thoughts on the matter before i buy one and start modding it to fit.

as for the air tank that will not be a problem as the OEM fuel tank has been removed completely and will be the location of a 10 gallon or better air tank.

There are PTO driven air compressors.
