a/c compressor install problems

(Also listed in turbo site)

I bought a new Denso compressor for the a/c and verified the part number. After servicing the unit prior to install I started having issues with getting it to fit. I micrometered the mounts and found the mounting ears were 1 mm too wide so I carefully dressed them to snugly fit. Still after two days of effort, I still can't get the bolts to go in. There appeared to be some interference spots at the top so I filed them down and I still can't get the bolts to go in. Am I the only one who has encountered this or is it a common issue with compressor replacement?

I've gone over the parts diagrams and pictures and watched videos so I'm still at a loss for where the problem might be.
3 944's, 2 Boxsters and one Caman S, and now one 951 turbo. Really miss the Cayman.

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
