How to mount a/c

Post by Circuit Rider on Wed Jul 19, 2017 3:13 am

I am just about to get my daughter's 77 Monte back on the road. She fired up and sounds sweet. the engine is an 82 sbc 305 that has been stepped up with a mild cam, aluminum intake and 550 cfm Edelbrock and headers. It took forever to get the power steering pump to line up right with aftermarket brackets. Did a bunch of modifications and customization to get it to fit. Planning to get car on the road asap. But am planning to return and add the a/c. The car came with bbc a/c brackets, and I bought one aftermarket setup, but neither would work (the a/m ended up for mounting compressor on the passenger side). So, since I have headers, taller than stock valve covers (Edelbrock Elites), a lwp, how do I mount the stock long a/c compressor on the driver's side? Are there brackets out there that work? Open to any ideas! TIA Andy

Alan Grove Components have quite an assortment of applications and came in handy when I was retrofitting Vintage Air to mine.  Maybe one of these would work:

They appear to be mostly designed for the Sanden compressor, but maybe with a mod or two you could make it work for the factory compressor...

I'll look I might have some stock mounts for it.
