As work progresses on appliances the question comes up on where do we store them? The best place we can think of is, as seen in other updates, on the engine itself. This is also true of the air compressors.
The 3-D chess continues with a careful layout of where on the boiler the holes will be drilled to receive the studs that will hold the compressor bracket. Great care is required so the compressors will end up straight up & down with the bracket mounted to the curved surface of the boiler barrel.
The perfect fit to the boiler barrel is a testament to both the skill of Continental Mfg. and attention to dimensional detail during the design process.
