I have '87 E30 with M10 engine, and I am in a process of fitting a/c
from a wrecked car. It's time to fit a/c compressor now (everything
else is finished :-)
My first question is: does the compressor have to be at predefined
angle, or can I rotate it 30 degrees around rotor axis?
I am asking this because the compressor has a mounting bracket for M20
engine (not sure about that), and I have M10. Existing mounting bracket
attaches to the motor in a vertical plane, and for my engine that plane
is at 30 degree angle.
Since I do not knew in detail how does compressor operate, I do not
knew if rotating it for 30 deg. around the axis of rotor rotation would
do any damage. And it would be the easiest to fabricate bracket like
Now my second question. If rotation can damage compressor I have to
fabricate more complicated bracket, that will be heavy if I use steel.
Would aluminum be good enough to hold (pretty heavy) compressor?
