Hi All,

Ive run into a problem where by im trying to fit my RB30 aircon pump onto the block but the RD28 engine mount (which i have to use) will then not bolt into the block as the aircon pump is about 2-5mm too long.

I know i can just not put the aircon pump in and run the car without it but summer is coming around the corner. Has anyone else had this similar problem and what alternatives did they do?

Any help would be great

If you can get the pulleys to line up, drag out the angle grinder with an old worn down wheel on it and a big square faced file and take the pump down to size. Im not sure if this can happen but if it is like Im thinking it is then this will work.

Throw up a photo mate.

different ac compressor, otherwise it looks like it will be cutting engine mounts off chassis and then making custom mounts

I will do that as my last option before dropping in the motor, if anyone as any other suggestions ideas i will take them first before grinding. Motor is going in this weekend most likely.
