Default Need photo showing AC bracket mounting point

If anyone can email me a photo showing where their AC compressor mounts to a '94 Corvette's LT1 I would GREATLY appreciate it. This is a silly request but since my LT1 has been installed in a different car, I don't have any reference point. I've searched the internet but the diagram's and photos I find are all a bit different. I just need to see where the stock mounting point is and then I can get to work seeing how much custom hose work I need to have done.

Thanks!

Do you feel you've got the correct mounting hardware? That would be brackets and hardware. It's pretty straight forward if you have the correct alternator/compressor mounting bracket, 1 aluminum bracket and a combination of 4 braces for the alternator and the compressor. The compressor has only two braces. What is the number cast into your aluminum primary bracket.

I don't have the mounting bracket. My LT1 was removed from a '94 Corvette and is installed in a 1995 Porsche 968 and I want to switch over to the GM compressor. The dope who did the conversion on my car used a Porsche 944 compressor which is way more expensive, and designed for 12a refrigerant. Why they didn't use the Porsche 968 compressor which was meant for 134a I don't know. I have plenty of clearance to accommodate the GM compressor as far as I can see but I don't know where the mounting bracket actually mounts to the engine block. Some photos show mid on passenger side, others show high on passenger side and some show low on driver's side. Yet all the photos claim to show where it mounts on a '94 LT1 installed in a base Corvette. That's why I asked for a photo from someone.

Here's an image of the compressor/alternator mount in a stock configuration.

I meant to include this one single post to check also and forgot. You shouldn't need but here it is anyway. Post up some snapshots of your install.

That's what I was afraid of. In my installation the alternator is on the passenger side and the compressor is mounted low on the driver's side. I will take a picture and figure out how to post it here. A simple cut and paste doesn't seem to work.

This post contains more pictures of an LT1 engine without either the alternator or compressor, but you can use this with the other pics to see exactly how it is mounted.

The F-body alternator and a/c compressor or both placed on the right side of the engine, with the a/c compressor mounted low.
