Compressor mountin

Finally got around to pulling the ARB compressor out of the battery compartment. I've been thinking about placing it under the passenger seat, but I also have a lot of room in the engine bay on the passenger side where the AC was. Is mounting it in the engine bay a bad idea? Finding a big enough flat spot may be a problem, but I'd like some advice.

Mine was mounted underr the passenger's seat. Seems to be quite happy there. Lots of fun to scare new passengers by turning it on!!

Nice redneck spelling of "mountin" by me. Sheesh.

I placed it under the passenger seat this afternoon, and I can't mount it holes down without loosing my switch and secondary air. I suppose I could mount it against the side of the box like it was on the drivers side.

In the engine bay, on the passenger side, the only flat spot is the frame rail, and there's a brake line running on the top of that. Don't think I want to drill through the frame anyway. My only other option in there is the fender liner, but it's curved, not flat. My compressor is pretty old, and it won't fit where Jimmy put his, so I guess I'm still looking.......but it'll probably end up under the passenger seat.

Could always mount it somewhere that you could pull clean air from after the air filter.

Dave,
Charles has this setup. Ask him about it last trip off road and he will likely tell you not to place the compressor there! ;-)

Dave, Iv'e lifted everything out through the cab and thats as far as got, all sitting on my trailer under a foot of snow. Will take a photo of the compressor tomorrow. As for problems having it mounted there, none.
Been under water, plastered in mud and still runs. Had a problem at winter romp but that was a connection to the fuse box under the drivers seat.

Thanks Jimmy, I'll look for that. Good luck getting your rig back together. I'll get Charles's story but I figure if it can survive under the Salmon bonnet it can survive under mine No room under the right seat in a UK truck with side tank. A little room in the battery box but I don't really like that idea for a number of reasons.
