A6 to Sanden

Post by sh011956@aol.com »

Has anyone been successful in modifying the A6 compressor mounts to make a Sanden fit it? I know I can buy a bracket from Clark's but would like to use the stock one if possible.
Thanks

I've never seen, or heard of, someone doing that.

Except for a few concours cars nobody is interested in the old Frigidaire compressor now. Be aware the Corvair compressor was unique, not a regular A6 unit. If you have the 140HP A6 brackets you might find a buyer as they were different vs. the other Corvair engines and are not common.

After looking at the amount of work it would take to modify the stock mounting brackets, I ordered the correct part from Clark's.

He has a 65 so unlikely it uses the high-mount compressor brackets. I still run the A6 compressors on my LM Vairs and until they fail, I have no reason to change either setup to Sandens.

I would be interested in the low-mount brackets so save them for future use. I don't need them but those are not easy to find if someone is returning to a stock setup.
