Hi Kurt;
    I have an 89 Fox wagon with air but it is a gasser. The only Dasher I
have ever had with air was also a gasser. I just don't see where you are
going to mount both the alternator and the compressor since you will have a
diesel injection pump where you would mount one or the other. Perhaps mount
the alternator above the injection pump and bubble the hood???
