    Will the Sandon style a/c compressor work with the LD 340 or RPM air gap intakes? If not, what does fit the small block?

    I have the stock ac compressor with a ld340 on my LA 360 and everything lines up, so I would say that should not be a issue for a sanden.

    I have the modern style compressor on my 340 with air gap intake. Works great. Of course you will need to fab up some brackets.
    Mine was part of the kit from classic auto air but I still had to make a couple brackets because the support brackets did not line up to the intake bolt. The final product is rock solid with no possible way to flex.

      My 408 has an LD340 manifold and I was able to modify eighties truck AC brackets to work.

        Vintage air makes a bracket that mounts to the water pump, mounts the compressor, PS pump, and alt., comes with bolts, spacers and all.
        Need a different heater nipple for the intake that angles instead of straight up.

          Then work with the Edelbrock Air Gap, not any of the chinkesium air gaps.

          Brackets were off an LA, not a mag. My 408 is based off a mag with EQ heads.

          it's not the compressor that would be the problem, it's the brackets

          If you haven't already bought the compressor, check out CVF Racing. Got my pulleys, brackets, and compressor from them for my 340 with an Air Gap. Everything fit perfectly.
