I have the 258 straight 6, stripped everything off during the rebuild, reviewed the Chiltons and Haines, but want to be sure I have it right...

Those 2 manuals didn't have any pictures?

Thx LG; First of all I am not a great mechanic, just a mad scientist who likes to tinker.

No pics in the nanuals that show the bracket setup. Problem is I took this apart about 2 years ago, and lost the photos I had during dismantle.

I have attached some pics and have a few questions if you can help...much appreciated...

Photo 125458 Small rectanglular palte has bend and "F" on one site- IS this the idler Adjusting bracjet plate? I have two, one is bent...

Photo 125539 Another view of the bent plate showing the "F"

Photo 125631 Triangular plate and angle iron bracket- Are these power steering related?

Photo 125749 alternator below AC bracket

Photo 125757 another view of above

Photo 125809 view of idler adjusting bracket and pulley

Photo 125836 Does center port go to PCV valve on valve cover?

Photo 125849 View of top of motor

Photo 1259908 View of passenger side of motor

Comments on these are much appreciated!

58 and 39 go from alt to compressor. Look at 243's AC install and you will see. Looks like his is a bit different, still, the 2 brackets go from comp to alt. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/da...l#post13972535

31 triangle bracket is PS think the other bracket is AC/Alt related but not sure.

These are PS brackets for 84-86 should be all you need unless you have smog pump to re install (TX shouldn't need it as it is emissions exempt, just safety inspection)



Pretty sure you can get rid of the idler pulley on the drivers side if not using the smog pump.

Belts should run PS - water pump - crank. AC - water pump - crank.
Alt - AC.

Currently in pieces - all of them

This may be teh correct diagram but you need to verify whether it is factory or not AC.

Thanks for the input... Attached are some diagrams, but still none show the alternator setup below the AC... all are above the AC. The jeep was manufactured in Canada...

Also are pics of the two rectangular spacers- one has an F stamped on it, the other is slightly larger but has nothing stamped on it. I believe the F stands for front...please advise if you can.

I have the AC bracket and compressor mounted, and power steering brackets and drive pulleys ready to go.

SP; The ac is factory, has a cast aluminum bracket with 3 bolts in triangular fashion. AC is mounted on top...need to confirm Alternator bracketing. I have two bolt holes: one large on top and a small adjustment screw on bottom that connects to the tensionier bracket.

Downloaded a FSM yesterday and it did not have diagrams than Chiltons or haynes...they gladly refunded the $$$

It is Factory air, made in Canada with the AC on top...see pics.

Has one aluminum AC bracket that bolts right to the block. Alt has two bolts I can see: one large on top and tensioning screw at bottom...seems real flimsy...
