Exclamation air compressor on cummins motor

i got a 6bt cummins engine 5.9L 6 cyl.
does anyone know if any of the dodge vehicles with the cummins engines. come out with an air compressor fitted to the back outlet of the timing cover, just undernieth the injector pump. it was a holset brand.
it is oil fed from the block and drains back into the block via a mount that sits onto the front two holes of the 4 hole patern for the engine mounts.

i got one ( engine only) but wanted to know if they were in any vehicle, cause im looking for the appropriate engine mount that might fit it.
any help would appreciated ...........

here is a link to a pic. i cant post pics so if you need a better pic let me know and i will send in message and maybe you can post for me,

your best bet would be to find a mount off a school bus or something that had the engine. I have a dodge and bought the same compressor you have, but with the steering pump on the back of it, there isn't room for the dodge engine mount.

mine also has the hydraulic pump on the back of it.
so will the mount fit up with the drain block from the compressor.
please send me pic if you have it installed. any chance you could do some chasing up for me. we dont have anything like this in australia. cause you might be looking for one yourself, it would be much appreciated if you could find me one even new would be ok.

thanks for the reply anyway.

I looked at the mounts that they use for the school busses and they are nothing like what I have on mine, they actually only have a front mount that goes right across under the crank pulley, and the rear is supported by the tranny crossmember. there is no other mounts on them. I don't have mine installed yet, I only have the compressor and am still putting together parts and such. lots of changes to be made haha. Im going to probably have to build a bracket to support the rear of the compressor too

Almost all of the 5.9 B-series that had air comps were used in Medium duty and with that said they would have used the front leg mount and bellhousing mounts. You'll probably have to fab your own mount if you want to attach it at mid block like the Dodge style. You maybe able to use the 1st gen dodge engine mount with that air comp.

Hmm... Very interested in this air pump as I have to put one on the limo engine. I would loose my vacuum pump, so then Id have to fab up something for the brakes. Anyone know of some part numbers, model numbers, or anything to help me start my research?

Kilby Air makes a Compressor mount. And a whole kit.

+1 on Freightliner as a source...

Ford Cargo (cabover) used the 5.9 and 8.3 CTD toward the end of the run. If they had airbrakes, they had the compressor

http://www.ottawatruck.com/ use 24V Cummins with a very efficient compressor. 0-120 psi (filling 3 tanks) in about 2-3 minutes.

Last time I checked, Kilby didn't make one for the 12V 2nd generation Dodges. My brother and I have made mounts for our trucks though, so it is possible to fit a york horizontally over the alternator. It doesn't move the alternator much, so we are able to use the stock serpentine belt unlike Kilby's 24V kit. I have some pics over on the TDR, under the user name Willys.

Edit: Sorry, I misread the original question so my experience won't help you, but just wanted to say that is one beautiful project you have there!

so far to make up for the vacuum pump, I bought an electric vacuum pump off a ford F350 diesel. I haven't hooked it up yet so I can't comment on if it will be enough, but I will postup when I know.
