It's the slightly modified stock aluminum mount. These mounts are pretty stout in my opinion. Ground out the 'U' to clear the pump body. Slotted the passenger side compressor mounting bolt hole to mate to the Sanden pattern. Ground some on the driver side corner of the mount to completely clear my MSD distributor in case I need to adjust some timing.LOL, sounds about right on that time line; a fact which is uncomfortably familiar.
Do you have pictures of your proposed AC mount? I can't envision the need for 1/2" bolts to secure the rear of that compressor. A 1/2", even at grade 5, "on paper" should be able to hold the entire vehicle - not factoring in the size of your loved ones or your emergency supply of beer kegs.
I'd love to see a picture of the Sanden 508 pump too!
Bro. Greg,Don't know if this is of any use, but this is the 1980 mount for the R-4 compressor. The rear of the compressor is supported by two tubular rods that mount to the back of the compressorView attachment 25228View attachment 25229View attachment 25229 on the thru bolts and bolt to the intake to cylinder hgead mounting bolts.
I LOVE that idea!! Simple tubing, flattened on the ends then drilled. I doesn't get much simpler than that.Bro father tubular rods have the ends flattened ab n d drilled and twisted
so that one end bo ok ya to a compressor through bolt and the other end bolts to one of the intake hold down bolts
I think I can modify a second factory mount, turn it around backwards, and make a support plate for the bottom. I’ll update with pics if it works.
May be, but I've spent the night in a single wide trailer bedroom with a window AC cranked down and it was very effective...………………………..don't ask what else I was doing!Actually automotive AC compressors are sometimes larger than the ones in central AC systems. They have to be that way to cool a 120+ degree car quickly and keep it there with all the glass.
Bro. Richie,Your project is looking good Bro D, I sure like the way that front end looks! You got all pooped out posting your pics ,That sounds like me big time.
I work a little on it ,rest, work a little rest ,fall a sleep and wait for the next day. I do a lot of resting..
Good luck with your project....How long you been on it? if you dont mind. My little corvair is either a 19 or 20 years now I am SLOW
