no accessory holes!

alright we have all heard the tired story, double hump heads and no where to mount my stuff. Well I have everything figured out but the ac. Heres my idea. the ac mount with the sling coming off the intake at the back then a bracket between the headers, one in front that mounts off the headers with the ps pump and then there is the one plate that mounts to the head. What im thinking of doing is getting a piece of flat metal and running it from the water pump bolt up to the one compressor hole that wont have a bracket. Sorry uif this is confusing i can take pictures if necissary. Im just wondering if anyone has had success doing this. Ive seen the alangrove brackets and all the others im just thinking it shouldn't be too hard to find something that will fit in that spot.

You are definitely looking at some fab work . I built brackets for a guy who put a 327 in his '78 K10 some years back .

Just make it stiff enough so nothing flexes and you should be okay .
