    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.

    Compressor #15630

    Alternator #15460

    Power Steering #15525

    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.

    Hi Brad,
    New Forums member with a Buick 340 motor in a '65 Sport Wagon that I want to fit with a Sanden compressor & V/Air kit. Will your combo mount fit my heads? What does it cost, if I may ask :confused:

    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.

    I would be very interested in this bracket. Installing vintage air on my 68 Riviera and having some trouble finding anything that will work.

    Building a 68 riviera and installing vintage air, need a bracket like this to install Sanden compressor and relocate Alternator.
