M30 A/C bracket on m10b18 block?

Will an a/c bracket from the m30 motor bolt on to a m10b18 block from 84 318i?  I have a Seiko a/c compressor from a 91 735i and have the hoses and belt to match up with it.  I don't have the bracket yet but it looks like it might work.  I thought the m10 and m30 blocks basically have the same bolt holes for the most part.

I think the 'for the most part' might be the catch-

the M30 was used for a long time, in a lot of cars, just like the M10

so there are going to be only a bout a million different brackets for it.

 

And the -b18 block was the first to have things removed from it-

there are a few bosses no longer present.

 

I suspect it's going to be a 'try it and see' and then a matter of 

which variant the bracket came from.

 

No help here, I know...

Honestly this might really be a good time to think about buying a Bluntech A/C Bracket and an inexpensive China Sanden Clone, gong this modern route you would be much more efficient.

 

With this set up I'm seeing 29' temp blowing out of my dash

Where would I get the Bluntech bracket that would fit the m10 block? I was thinking about maybe doing the Sanden conversion at some point.
