tried that - no help
from orig post:
"Just to experiment, in case there was some sort of harmonic resonance
occuring or something??? I then installed a rubber sheet gasket between
the contact areas of the 2Bennett alternator bracket (it is a plate with
tabs hanging down) and the stock a/c compressor bracket. This made
virtually no difference."

I'm going to take a WILD guess here:
What if the whine is the two cases transmitting vibrations through each
Would the mounting of the two compressors with rubber vibration
(dampening / isolating) bushings between them help?
Otherwise, I'd suspect the alignment of the pulleys and the belt
twisting; leading to the whine or premature bearing failure.

2Bennett makes a bracket (steel I think) that mounts the
alternator to the underside of the urquattro a/c compressor, allowing
for extra room on the passenger side for a big intercooler.
