    Anyone got pics of their A/C compressor and the way the brackets go on? I got a brand new one from the junkyard today. Still in the box in the back of this K5. Talk about luck. I need to know how the brackets hook up to the motor. If anyone could post some pics that would be VERY helpful. Thanks....

    Go to your dealer. He/She can print a parts illustration for you.
    E-mail me and I'll fax you some illustrations in a.m. from work.

    my truck book didn't show the V8 R4 brackets, this is '82 camaro V8, it should be similar.
