I am upgrading the underhood components in a restomod 1970 Ford Mustang Mach1. You guys helped me doing the same thing with a Plymouth Cuda back in 2005. My question is regarding the Sanden compressor. The unit I have has suction and discharge ports on the top. Can that rear plate be removed and clocked to the side for better hood clearance?
Why not just rotate the compressor so the fittings are pointing at 90 degrees?
Thanks for responding TRB. I thought about that but the compressor has the oil fill plug on top. If I filled up the unit can you simply mount the compressor in whatever orientation you want?
You can lay it on it's side, but not with the fittings in a downward position.
Great, thanks. I think that will help and I may run one of the lines around behind the air cleaner. One other thing that I have just now been made aware of is beadlock vs. serrated? It seems beadlock has an advantage in R134 applications where a barrier hose is used. I used the serrated fittings on my Cuda. Could serrated fittings/crimps cause leaks later on in between the plys of the barrier hose or is this even worth considering? The beadlock looks more OEM and am thinking on going with it instead of the serrated style. Your thoughts?
