    I bought this A/C bracket for the passenger side a couple of years ago on this forum and am wondering if it is a York bracket? Would it be possible for someone to post a photo of a compressor mounted to a bracket like this?
    Sorry I am not very familiar with all things Buick but have a '75 350 that I rebuilt and am getting ready to mount alternator, PS pump, and A/C compressor. [photo of bracket will hopefully upload - haven't done this before]
    thanks,
    Lane

    Andy, would you by any chance know of some resource that might show how everything mounts up?

    This is the best news ever as I was perplexed as to where to put the alternator given that the other side has the PS pump. When I bought this engine there were no brackets and their devices. It had all been removed so it's starting from scratch and my shop manual on CD hasn't helped. Thank you ...............

    Right side of block. Alternator shares a long bolt that also is a mount bolt for the bracket . Hope these help

    Your picture isn't very definitive, but, it looks like a stock A6 bracket. You wouldn't want a York bracket since the York compressor that fits it isn't original and is very noisy. If you decide to go to an after market compressor I'd recommend a Sanden. A Frigidaire A6 is what came on your car from the factory and there are several tricks to get that system to work with R134 refrigerant.

    Thanks for that feedback. I am going to use a Sanden compressor. My confusion stems from thinking that York type compressors were the standard on this model [1975]. I don't remember where I heard this but it was obviously not correct. I take it that the Sanden compressor will fit into this same bracket? On a side note ....... the info I have gathered on the internet seems to confirm that my bracket is the one you refer to. I am much less confused now thanks to this website and a little poking around with key terms on google. For someone like me [ignorant of the facts] figuring out how this bracket fit up to the block was intimidating.

    There was someone on this forum making a bracket for the Sanden compressor not to long ago. Do a search & I'm sure you'll find it.
