Accessory Drive System Components Fitment FAQ's
General QuestionsQ: Will the accessories off my pullout engine work with your brackets?
A: That really is a trick question since GM make so many different variations to all of their components used on engines over the years. and the answer typically is no, however there are some exceptions to that answer. We designed our drive systems to use commonly found accessory drive components. as long as the donor engine has those same style accessories they can be re-used. Here in this FAQ we will try our best explain which components can be used with our accessory drive brackets.
A/C CompressorsQ: Will my factory low mount A/C compressor fit your high mount a/c bracket?
A: If it’s a stock GM style compressor that bolts to the low passenger side of the engine block, than the answer is no, our a/c bracket is designed to fit the aftermarket Sanden compressor’s commonly used by Vintage Air and other aftermarket a/c system manufacturers using what is commonly referred to as the “8 Ear Long Flange” (square 4 bolt flange) as seen in the picture below
Sanden 4514 (SD508 series), 4522 (SD508 series), 4665 (SD7 series), or 9537 (508 series), 047002-MUR (sd508 Series), 047007 (SD709)
Power Steering PumpsQ: Will my Power steering pump fit your alternator power steering bracket?
