    I've searched this before. GM never used a York on the 6.2, hence no brackets. There MAY have been some RVs made with York ACs on them, but I couldn't find any info on them. If you really want a York on there you're gonna have to fab your own mounts. I took the easy way an found one of the older R8(?) compressors for my jimmy. It's a big rotary and supposed to have even more output than the York, but needs an oil feed to survive. I'm still working on an oil feed as I don't want to replace the compressor every 6 months (even though they're CHEAP). /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    well I did find a York on a suburban, I think it had a 350 in it, but the bracket seems wrong for the 6.5 , I'll take a picture of it and see what you guys think.

    I don't know if you are still looking but I found a source for york brackets for most vehicles as well as many parts at this site: Onboardair.com you could ask them if they have one for the 6.2, they don't list it but they might have it, or they could make it and have it available for others.
    Now if you are not in a hurry, I am going to fab my own but that is in the next couple of months, I will be doing that for on board air, not air conditionning by the way.

    I am still too busy, but I hope that by march I should have some time.
    I have a friend that made one a week ago for a 350 that bolts to the heads, maybe I'll check if it works for the 6.2, and if not it could be a starting point.

    The york is a different beast, I don't believe it was offered in GM trim.
    If you find one that goes on the GM 6.2 and york compressor, send me some pics so I can duplicate.

    I was just going to try and use the different 6.2 brackets for the enging mounting points and combine it with the bracket that came with the york. Hopefully with a little welding and some luck i'll get something that will work. I'll let you know if i find a combo that works.

    Well I finally got a York with the brakets off a chevy 350 and I will try and see if it's any close to fit on the 6.2l
    I am in the process of buying a house so a little too busy but in a couple of weeks I should have time to look at it and will let you guys know.
    I am equiped to duplicate if someone would be interested then.

    Talk about a long ago original post. I was wondering if anyone made out with the bracket for the york to the 6.2. I spoke with onboardair.com and unfortunately, they do not offer nor are planning on offering one.

    I made one but it came out prety ****ty so I went back to square one. I am going to take another stab at it next week so we'll see how it turns out. The biggest problem is tensioning the belt. On the first try I used a long piece of all-thread to move the whole pump and it worked ok, but the bracket was prety janky and I never even tried to turn it on because I figured the belt would probably slip too much under a load.

    This time around I intend to use parts of the brackets off a 70's ford truck as well as the idler pulley that they used, I'm thinking this will work. I will deffinately post up progress pics though.

    I'm going to be starting the works on designing one here pretty quick. Just have to wait until a fellow diesel member has time to get out here so I can get some measurements off his motor.
