Hey Z, technically you need to mount the A. Comp to the front gear hsg., not it's cover...now, speaking from many years experience selling exactly what you need, get on in to your Cummins Distributor and find an 'experienced' partsman. If they're doin' their job they will search the available parts component options in text (PARTS BOOK and michrofiche!) or electronically and should be able to cover all the hurdles you're gonna run into. There are several B/W, Midland, Holset, etc. a. comp. drive options available since way before they were in these Dodges. Off the top of my head things like F. Pmp., vac. pmp., steering res./pmp. style and location are going to need to be addressed. It (the A. Comp.) will be located at the port in the housing where your vac./pwr str. is currently below the F. Pmp....gotta run, phone.

the way ive seen them mounted is where the vac pump is on our trucks ans ps behind that also like our trucks
it would be great if you converted your trucks brakes to air assist or hydro rather vac, but then youd have to come up with a way to move the louvers it the hvac sys

use an electric vacuum pump like on the superturds?

I'd like to have a gear driven compressor on my truck as well, so hurry and figure out what we need to do it

I Installed a Bendix 2150 9.5cfm air compressor on my Limo with a 94 6bt. The motor mount is different to compensate for the length of the compressor and there is a coolant kit you get from Cummins to route coolant from the head to the compressor. The Bendix compressor came of a VE pumped 6bt, so I know it will fit.

Also, I dont have a vacuum pump on the limo, just a large hydraulic pump for run my hydraulic steering system. I think you can get a vacuum pump for the mount, it is the most used diesel engine mount in the industry!

I think it ran me 350 total to install including purchase rebuild and everything.

If you want a engine mounted air compressor on the cheap, get yourself a old Frigidaire AC pump off a early model car or truck, theres info online about converting these to airpumps....make up a bracket.
On your bottom pulley, weld on a pulley to drive it, and mount your tank under your bed....done deal....

If you can swing it the gear-driven comp. w/coolant cooling the head of the comp. is the way to go. The ones with the belt-driven york comp. work but are slow and build up quite a bit of heat.
