Heating and Ventilation

This is a follow up on the last question I had on air conditioning compressors. I've been doing research. It appears that a sanden can fit further out to the passenger side of the car, but it will make removing the valve cover difficult (which I do every 6000 miles). The pump I have is a sanden 508, the bracket mounts on the timing chain cover and has a belt locating jockey bearing on it. Itwas definately for a 911, but I think for an injected car, as it will not fit my car. If I were to go the sanden size route, I think I'd look for a seiko-seiki - my research says they draw less power, and are smoother running (and are actually rotary pumps. Right now, I'm considering an axial piston pump - AC/Delco/Harrison/delfi R4 - it should be shallow enough to fit where the tecumpseh is, but I have to check on the diameter (they are 7" around, I'm not sure the deck lid will close with that). I can have mounting brackets made to use most of the existing equipment, and not need a jockey pulley. Again, any pictures of systems (other than york or tecumpseh) on a carbed car would be helpful.
