  1. More, including the condenser and side to side comparison of the bracket with factory bracket beside. If you have an original 401 bracket, you can use that by expanding the holes to fit a Sanden style compressor.

    Apparently, this customer got even colder air than my previous pic of my IR gun.

  2. Here are the pics of my bracket based on a factory bracket. Much like the original, belt tension is achieved by adjusting the generator.

    I don't have pics of my setup cuz my car is up in the air (on a lift), and I can't get to it with a ladder. I will try and get a pic soon. Honestly, I can't believe I don't have one pic in my phone of my setup....

  3. Another consideration is which side do the hoses enter and exit the unit. That is why I used the Old Air Products. The hoses are on the passenger side which means they don't have to go an additional two feet and be messing with your foot on the accelerator pedal. I just drilled the drain into the bell housing bump and let it drain out there. No problem...just a hole. Like you mentioned above,  I had a compressor mount fabricated that just uses two mounting points at the generator stud and the top water pump stud. Hasn't moved and very solid.

  4. I watched two of Mud's videos today. The king pin installation and the upper control arm installation.

    I have done a lot of both of those jobs and he makes it look easy. I wish I had these videos available to me when I was first doing this work. 

    Great work Ken.

    Seriously.

    Congrats!!!   I would definitely take Willie's recommendation and use the scoops as decor and skip putting the holes in the car.

     

    Thats why I sold em to KC. I didn't even use them as decor.

    :D

    I just received a matching numbers front exhaust pipe bracket and clamp from mike. It even had the correct amount of dirt and grease on it that perfectly blended into “One Bids” greasy underbelly.

     

     

     

     

    Yeah... that's why I left the grease on.

    :D
