Well, I ended up going a totally different route :o
I had first wanted to mount them between the frame rail and the body of my Cruiser next to my air tank (just like I had my 450c mounted for a while).
The 450c was mounted sideways using nutserts, but for the new compressors, I wanted them mounted upright, so I picked up a pair of mounts from Grunion.
Nutserts couldn’t be used because of the limited space for a gun and it was the same deal with rivets
In fact, in order to drill holes, I had to order ultra short drill bits, use an angle drill and still barely had enough space to squeeze in there :eek:
The other fastener option I had was box bolts, so I contacted the company that made them and they sent me a box of samples (excellent product btw)
Thing is, after sizing up the new mounts and compressors, I realized that I had just enough room to get them in there, but if I ever had to service them, I’d have to yank the mounts, which means ripping out the box bolts (which are one time use and a PITA to remove)
Soooo, I made a last ditch effort and decided to mount the compressors under my front bumper between the frame rails.
They’re on their side…not what I wanted, but I didn’t really have room anywhere else
Actually ran 1/2" tubing from the compressors to the tank on the frame rail.
They work great (much faster than my old 450), but I need to install elbow fittings for the snorkel tubes.
For now, I just taped up the extra donut filters between the housings.
