    Harrison AC Compressor in TC by Maserati - Hoses Conflict with Fuel Rail

    When I bought the Ramerati, it did not have AC installed but my purchase did include the AC bracket some hoses and the Harrison compressor.

    Now I'm trying to install it and the hose set that clamps to the compressor appears to conflict with the fuel rail.
    I tried re-clocking the compressor but it seems I had it correct to start with. The hoses' connector, see pic, wants to come in from the top, or horizontal, while the compressor wants that hose bracket to come in from the side, or vertically. I can re-build the hoses to fix that, of course.

    The car was built with an early production crate engine so maybe there is a later fuel rail? Or, a different compressor or compressor bracket?

    You're missing two brakets that locate the compressor, top one is steel and bolts to those two holes in the head, side one is cast aluminum. Lemme take a pic...

    Thanks, after seeing that, and the pic you txt'd to me, I see that the hoses in your car are clocked to exit the compressor down low at about 4:00 o'clock. I've been trying to clock them up top, at about 1:00. So, I cut some of the vertical panel below the upper core support out to see if that might work. The low side hose's steel tube will still have to be bent tighter and the hoses will still have to be re-built, so it remains a puzzle.
