AC compressor / bracket interchange
Posted 30 September 2003 - 01:20 AM
*My wagon has A/C w/ smaller squarish compressor.
*The XT engine has no A/C.
*Pull N Save has an XT with A/C w/ larger round compressor.
Obviously the bracket will fit on the engine and intake just fine.
Will that bracket for the round style compressor hold my square style compressor as well or am I chasing the wrong bracket?
I can't make it out to the yard, most likely, until the weekend, and would like to know if I should search for a different bracket instead of wasting my time with this one?? if anyone knows. thanks!

Those mountings are different. The A/C and alts switch places on the cars with the square compressors.
I'm certainly no expert, but it seems that the square A/C's show up more on the sportier models (turbos, gl10's, 4wd 5speeds).
I'm also looking for one of those square a/c pully bracket mounting deals, and they are tuff to find around here, so if you see an extra one at the yard...
good luck, John

but the one with the inboard alt has odd sized belts, and that makes for trouble at the parts counter!

I plan on grabbing the alternator bracket too..
but will the XT's round A/C compressor's bracket hold my wagon's square A/C compressor?
