[Vwdiesel] Help me out, folks... 1.5D into '88 Fox

Dashers are listed as having AC for the diesel models as well, and I 
even have a diesel with AC, unfortunately the engine is dead.

The Alternator tucks in right above the AC compressor, similar to the 
Quantum setup, and I have the appropriate brackets to do so, pulled from 
the Dasher, but... like I said, looks like the front engine mount/torque 
stop is of a different style and place from the Fox gas torque stop.
