Rack kit for an old HP system Rack

I am tearing my hair out. I have a Pedestal Compaq ML 350 G3 and want to rack it into an oldish HP Systems Rack ( a predesessor to the E series racks).

I can't find any part numbers or any info for a rack conversion kit. the only kits I can find are for the new Compaq racks which does not help me.

any help would be grateful?

My reseller can't help ( so much for the value add).

Re: Rack kit for an old HP system Rack

I just spoke to HP Germany and they have told me you can't rack a tower ML350 into a old HP systems rack ( J1488A), you can only rack them into E series or later racks.

If you do want to rack it into an E series rack you need 290683-B21 plus a special kit you have to order from Irving Tool & manufacturingCo based in texas.
