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!
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 compressor View attachment 25228 View attachment 25229 View attachment 25229 on the thru bolts and bolt to the intake to cylinder hgead mounting bolts.
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
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.
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
