    I just ins talled headers on my Blazer... My question is about the aiir conditioning bracket on my 83.
    Is there a "replacement" bracket for the air conditioning compressor bracket for a vehicle with
    headers? Or should I just cut it so it wraps around the one header pipe?
    I'm going to leave the A/C disconnected for now.. but want to know my options !
    Thanks all..

    Last time I bought headers, the header manufacturer offered the correct bracket as an option. You do want to have some type of bracket on the back of the compressor or it will vibrate when the a/c kicks on.
