Go with a CTS_V and sacrifice the depth for the smaller and lower brackets?
If were to do it over again I would try a Corvette balancer and this bracket/compressor: https://www.dirtydingo.com/shop/prod...oducts_id=1660
I think that would give the best chance of fitting a low mount compressor. No promises though! haha.
If you're up for making your own brackets check this out this email I got from Donnie:
What's up.. Here's the pics I promised.. These are the brackets that I made out of some flat steel.. Cut it with a sawsall and grinder and lined up the pulleys with a cheap craftsman laser level and tacked in place then finished welded.. I pretty much copied the Alan Grove top pivot bracket first and then made the lowers which have a only a little adjustment for the belt(Dayco 5040350).. It's tight but I think it'll work fine.. Some other guys on the forum have done similar stuff.. Any questions, let me know.. And thanks again for your videos.. They've helped me out as I'm moving at a much slower pace than you on my build.. Been two years this month.. Cheers.. Donnie
Slowly getting back into the build:
