    working on drawing up a mount for mine.... you could probably benifit from part of it if you wanted to build your entire bracket instead of having to buy it, I'll let you know when I get it going

    You can get original brackets for a small and big block and a Yorks. They are usually found on cube vans of some kind that have had AC converted on to them. I have seen several small block brackets and have a Big Block bracket now. They come with an idler pulley deal that bolts to the side of the Yorks. The brackets have been fixed. Very slick deal.

    They may be american pumps but chevy never used them from the factory. People have talked about seeing them on some chevy vans but to my knowledge those were aftermarket installed. They were common on fords, AMC's, volvo, some chrysler's

    I bought a bracket kit from kilby enterprises but it is for a serpentine setup. you might try them but unless you have a serp setup i think you will be home brewing something.

    Rob, do you have the capacity to make a bracket from plans? is your alternator on the pass or drivers side, I"m designing a bracket that's pretty solid and simple for the pass side. If it works I can probably make ya one, for a small fee

    Might try Arizona Mobile Air Inc. 3601 West Clarendon Ave. Phoenix, Arizona 85019 (800) 648-4475 or (602) 233-0090 (www.ackits.com). I bought a mounting kit for my 427 to mount the Sandon 508 compressor. They also have kits for small blocks. The mounts I bought could be readily adapted to fit most any compressor. Best $80 I spent.

    I have a pic of one I snagged, that came off of a suburban. I didn't remove it and I have a 6.5 so I'm not real sure how it mounts. bracket [image]http://home.attbi.com/~tackettb/bracket.jpg [/image]

    semi trucks, mainly internationals had them. the brackets from a 79 transtar international with a cummins engine can be made to work. Kenworth had them too. an 89 T-600 with a Cat engine can be made to work to and it is very adjustable.

    i've got an old 74 Mustang II in the back that has a york A/C compressor on it. i was thinking of trying to use the brackets from that on my truck. maybe just a little modifying will do.
