    Noooooo...

    Even with the swivel socket, open end wrench, whatever.... the left side bolt will not physically clear the compressor/bracket on my 78 NYB.....the compressor has to come off. Not even with ARP 12 point stainless bolts.

    Now that would really get me excited and not in a good way!!!! My 77 did not have air just the tow package. I think the people who designed that work for the snowmobile industry . I used to be able to replace the pistons and rings in a couple of hours not anymore 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound can.

    If you know what your doing.. Moving the compressor to gain access isn't very hard..... Unless all you have are ''vise grips'' and maybe.. a ''test light''. lol..... :hide:...

    Oh the memories, I loved my drafting machine, my dad a seasoned Architect despised them, the funny thing now is you hear old school Architects, Engineers and draftsmen say there is no more art in drafting now that CAD has taken over.

    Scott, your thermostat housing bolt next to the compressor should indeed come off with a socket wrench, extension and swivel end just as he states above. At least it works on everything I have through 1973, every time, even when the bolt seems to be corroded in place.

    The first cad programs came into use right about that time. The computers that supported them were the size of filing cabinets in some cases.

    I kept up with AutoCad until Release 13.0 (Windows 3.11 !)
    Once 14.0 came out, my financial ability to keep up with its hardware demands lost me.
    I last used it in '05 designing my house.

    Thanks Steve. I was looking at it yesterday and it indeed seems like there is enough clearance. Thanks! We need to get together and grab some lunch soon.

    I have been using Bentleys MicroStation for about 20 years now, equaly as good as AutoCad (if not better) and very user friendly. I was doing pretty involved drawings the moment I sat down at it and that was all self-tought. It is largly used in the government sector.
