still working out the mount ?
Same here.

It seems that the same two-piece mounts are used on all models (3116, 3126, C7). I wish I had taken them off my old truck and had them copied into CAD (let's just say these $80 mounts would be selling for $80 and not $800 if I did).

Now if you are willing to re-route your intercooler line, you can use a civilian-type mount on the alternator side.

Yep,it was a overhead track. So I got the HD 3/16" track. Should be fine for my load. 2035 Tracks # 2035.00471. Granger
The track will be carring a very small load. The cable will be doing most of the work and I will have some stops when not suing the lift cable on the carriage.

The steel for the compressor mount got here today. Their from Nostalgic AC .

Been waiting for some parts so I finished up somethings old starts.
Installed the city inlet and finished the 6" cut down of the bumper and finish the gray water drain.
When the parts show I will be back on the lift for the box.

Did some fitting of the track system to the truck box. Using 3/8 x 16 rivnuts . Installed the top one the adjusted the track.
Also made some plastic washers / spacers for the lift trucks. This will keep in centered in the track, this is also where the pulley rides.

Also test fit the plastic track guide's . This is UHMW plastic also used for the washers.

And ran into one problem with the track. Same number but not the same size. One is just a little tighter by .035". So I needed to trim the pins again. The other track,no problem. ???
