Vintage Air "AC Kit"- arrived to the shop for install for my 1970 Camaro which should be a direct fit replacement. The shop called and stated the kit arrived BUT came with a bracket for mounting the AC compressor on the "passenger side" not the drivers side. The alternator is on the passenger side and would have to be moved. I thought the compressor is suppose to be mounted on the "drivers side only" for a the 70 camaro and the kit should have came with the correct bracket? Now the shop says they have to order the correct bracket to move the alternator so the compressor and alternator can swap positions? The bracket is on back order until January, what would you do have the shop get the correct bracket to mount and continue? Does it matter what side the compressor is on "drivers side vs passenger side" any? or would you make the shop send the entire kit back and get the kit with the bracket to mount on the drivers side instead of swapping positions with the alternator?
