York Compressor Bracket

I am looking for a compressor bracket for my CJ, where would be the best place to look. What other vehicles have the same type of bracket. Are they hard to come by??

Re: York Compressor Bracket

Depends on your engine, but I was able to find brackets on Wagoneers from late 70's on. Went to Junkyard and found A/C equipped Wagoneer, and off with the bracket.

My engine is an AMC 304 which was the same as the Waggy I found.

If it's a 258 I6, then check AMC Eagles, Pacers, and Concordes.

Re: York Compressor Bracket

What if you've got a 4.0? Any brackets out there besides Kilby's?

Re: York Compressor Bracket

Hey thanks guys. I guess I will be hitting the yard next weekend. I am getting all the equipment together and don't want to spend a ton of money on this. It seems as if my jeep has a healthy appetite for money. The more I throw at it the more it wants.... You all know how that is.

Oh how much should I expect to pay for all the gadgets and doodads for this project. I see Kilby sells the kit for 600 bucks, I figure I can do it for at least half the cost???

Thanks Nate

That varys greatly depending on how many gadgets &amp; doodads you put on your system. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

York - should be around $25 (+ or - depending on where you go and condition)
Brackets - I paid $25 for a used set off an Eagle wagon
Tank - $20-$65 for a 2.5 gal depending on used or new
Hardware - this is where the varys greatly part comes in. Depends completely on how you set up your system and what you add. I think all the little stuff was the most expensive part of my system.

Here's my system:

Re: York Compressor Bracket

When it comes time to buy a tank, go to www.truckspring.com . They've got tanks almost identical to Kilby's for half the price and have a large variety of sizes to choose from.

Re: York Compressor Bracket

I don't understand, the '83 should have the bracket right there, unless you are not serpentine.Just remove the idler pulley and viola! The pulleys/clutch are the hard part.
