    Yes my bracket will fit the compressor pictured in that link. I cannot say how the bracket will work with the rest of the accessories under the hood though..... I also cannot say what kind of space issues you may run into with the fender braces and inner fender/rad cradle support brackets on the 79 trans am.

    A couple of good pictures under the hood may be in order. I am assuming this was a non A/C Car.

    I never heard of a Buick in a T/A, I thought the T/A occasionally used Olds motors in them No?
    thank for the reply I fitted the 455 buick my self got rid of the 403 olds. yes it was an a car as well .

    Hey guys there was a question a while back as to which belts to run with my compressor / alternator bracket. So I checked the two cars I have here in the shop at the moment one 455 and one 350. The belts we have on them are all Top Cog belts by Dayco and the numbers are as follows. Both of these cars are running factory A/C pulleys so if you have a set of aftermarket aluminum pulley these numbers may change.

    350
    Compressor #15630

    Alternator #15460

    Power Steering #15525



    455
    Compressor #15650

    Alternator #15495

    Power Steering #15500




    It is not required that you change your existing power steering belt.


    I If your existing alternator belt fits and tensions properly you may be ok, but use your discretion weather or not you change the alternator belt. If it were me I would put matching belts on the alternator and compressor since they share a common pulley on the alternator.

    I cannot speak to the fitment on a 340 Head, the factory brackets appear to be the same, from pictures I have found online. However you will have to confirm the bolt pattern in the end of the head is the same as a 350, 400, or 455. (I may be able to make you a PDF print out of the bolt pattern for confirmation)

    Another thing you will have to consider is pulley's I know this bracket works with 350 and 455 engines with factory A/C pulleys from 68-72. I do now know all the differences in water pump and pulley spacing for any other years or engine configuration.

    The bracket is $200 plus shipping.

    Thanks
