CJ - York OBA questions...

I was originally planning to buy one of Brad Kilby's mounting kits to mount my York to my 258. According to info on his site, the clutch/pulley assembly that I have will not work because it sticks out further than the ones that his kits were designed for. His kits call for the pullies to be 1.687" and 2.25" from the center of the front side mounting hole to the middle of the pullies.
Mine are 2.5" and 3".
My compressor was labeled as a Motorcraft, so it came from a ford.
So here's the question:
If I use stock AMC mounting brackets for a York, will that pulley work? Or, am I going to have to replace the pulley/clutch regardless of what mounting system I use? I'd build custom mounts, but I do not have a welder.

Thanks for your input.

I would go find a Volvo clutch and pully. They have the correct front/back alignment and they are ever so slightly smaller in diameter which will give you more air at lower engine speed.

Re: CJ - York OBA questions...

I can tell you my experience, but it may be slightly different than yours. I have an '84 CJ too, but it is a California model that came stock with serpentine pulleys. I used an AMC mount from an Eagle that mounts the York vertically. I ended buying a serpentine york pulley (from Kilby) and everything lined up perfectly. I was even able to use my stock belt (since I used to have a Sanden rotary compressor in the same spot). I was amazed that two different brackets mounting two different compressors would fit the same belt. Nice since I already had a spare.

I hope you get as lucky as I did. The AMC bracket also came on some CA CJs too. I bought a spare engine that had one on it. It's a really clean set-up.

I'm working on my OBA set up and am going the same way ... I pulled the mounting bracket from a eagle and will get the clutch from Kilby.

You can get you clutches from a Kenworth Dealer for about 50% less (especialy if you wait for a sale)
Mine was about $79 for a 6 rib, 6 1/2" serpentine.
