Problem with Air conditioner mount brackets

I am in the middle of putting back together frame up restore of 68. I have factory air that I want to keep. its a base model 327 engine.
Ok, now my problem. the front and side mounts for the Airconditioner compressor aren't lining up. They are supposed to line up so that the far right bolt hole ont the front mount is dirrectly infront of the bolt hole on the side mount. then the front compressor bolt goes through both. My front mount is sitting too far back. Anyone else run into this and have a solution.

Re: Problem with Airconditioner mount brackets

Mike did you reference the AIM? I don't have one handy at the moment, in the garage but it kind of shows the sequence in the book.... I haven't installed mine yet (engine still being built) so kind of curious of what problem you are running into....

Re: Problem with Airconditioner mount brackets

How much gap do you have, if slight, a washer or shim, and what water pump do you have?? I need to loosen the bracket to water pump, to do mine, then usually need to reseal the water pump.

Re: Problem with Air conditioner mount brackets

I think I uploaded a picture. My problem is overlap. the only way I see around it is to use washers on on the waterpump but I know there weren't any before my rebuild.

Re: Problem with Air conditioner mount brackets

Are you using a '608 water pump casting?
Do you have the Front Support bracket bolted tight?
If so - loosen, and align to the Side support bracket, then install rest of components before tightening it up.

There are no washers/spacers under the front mount at pump.
There is a spacer at the rear bolt position on the Side support.

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!
