    Ok gotcha. I did design this bracket similar to the 70-72 original Aluminum bracket but made the modifications to make it work with the 508 compressor. This makes it easier for those guys who do not have an original A/C bracket.

    Does anyone know if this would fit properly on a big Buick? Would like to do this on a 76 Electra if everything fit properly.

    I PM'd you but I am writing here to add to the forum. I have a 71' Lesabre with a 350 that I recently purchased a vintage air system for to install this winter. This forum discusses using your bracket design on a 455 but I was wondering if it would work on a 350? I know these 2 engines are completely different blocks but do share some interchangeability in some components. With me not being a expert in all things Buick, I am writing here to see if the bolt patterns for accessories on a 350 would be compatible. Would love to purchase one of your brackets if I could use it as the aftermarket industry has really ignored us Buick owners in many categories, especially this one. Thanks!

    Does this bracket Fit a 350 Buick Yes.
    Just keep in mind I have designed this bracket to work in place of the original Alternator mount on a heater car, or it completely replaces the bracket of an A/C car. They were designed specifically on a 70 Skylark 455. But I have personally installed them on a 68 350 skylark as well. If your car did not come with A/C pulleys you will have to be sure you have the proper ones because the belt routing for this bracket is the same as the factory A/C cars. I do outline proper belt lengths with factory pulleys in the instruction packet if anyone purchases a bracket.

    I cannot speak personally to the fitment of the bracket on any other model of car, be it Riviera, Le sabre or other wise but I can not see there being to much issue with them fitting anything else. I did have one guy install one on his hotrod!

    DSC07779.JPG finally put the new motor in, and slowly doing the add ons,
    wanted to use sanden 508 compressor, and still use orig brackets,
    notched the orig bracket, made spacers so there is no load on the comp ears,
    not final, need to make proper spacers, but belt aligns, and stays on ,
    now fabbing a tension arm,

    I have Personally installed these brackets on the 350 and 455. I do not believe cylinder head is any different on the 400. The bracket bolts strictly to the head. I cannot speak to any belt alignment/pulley setup on the 400 engine.

    Bob, you may have better luck finding that bracket in the parts for sale section, or parts wanted section of this forum, or try your luck finding an original compressor bracket on eBay.

    For anyone interested in one of these brackets, please send me a PM. I get email notifications of new messages. I am not constantly monitoring this thread or the messages on my profile. Starting a conversation or PM is the best way to ensure I see your request.
    Thanks again
