In the pictures I have Holley's low profile AC brackets which use a Sanden SD7 compressor. DirtyDingo sells one that sits a little closer to the block that I'm checking out too.Your progress looks great. That trans mount turned out really good. I think I missed it, but what A/C compressor did you end up running? How far off center are you landing?
They are 1/8". I will be using a (not weld) washer on each end however as long as the bolts are properly torqued they shouldn't move and oval. Regarding the rest of the strength, I think it will be fine as long as it doesn't get dented (and nothing really should be hitting those brackets).I really like your motor mounts and the gussets on the sides. Its a great design. But I think they're a little thin. It looks to be 1/8? I'd go at least 3/16 or even 1/4. Even if you only added a weld washer to the bolt eyes to double the thickness of where the bolt is. I doubt that the ears will move, but there is a lot of pressure placed on thin metal. That'll keep those holes from ovaling out.
