A/C bracket for 4.2L 258

Hey guys, I'm trying to do an OBA system and I have the commonly used york compressor, but I'm trying to find a bracket. I have no idea what it looks like.. so I'm hoping someone here can look at this picture of one that someone has available and tell me if it's the correct setup.

I know it's not the same compressor in the pic as what I have. But I'm curious to know if they used the same brackets?

Thanks folks..

I think you can modify that bracket to fit a york. You can buy a york bracket from kilby.

I was thinking that too. Cause it moves the alternator down too so it must be close.

Kilby wants $280! No thanks to that.

don't cut that bracket!!

it's a hard one to find for those of us who use the sanden compressor for OBA. I use that compressor for air and it works quite well, been running it for 7 years. If that's on your jeep now, you're half way done. Why change?

you can use the bracket that holds the idler pully on a 4.2 with surpentine belt. the parts manual shows it to be the same part # as the bracket for the york compressor.

Hehe.. no it's not on my jeep. Someone is trying to help me out and was offering it to me. I have the york 210 sitting here on the floor waiting for a bracket.

Okay guys, I found another source for another bracket, what about this one? Is this the right one? Is there only one bracket, or is there supposed to be an adjustment one? The one Kilby is selling has a slotted arch in it..

Considering that is a York compressor sitting right next to it, I would say that it should be the right one.

I have that part and the idler. The mount I have has an alternator bracket below it. I think it needs two belts on the crank and the water pump to work.

Well the yorks went into countless numbers of vehicles, it doesn't mean that bracket is the one made for the 258. I've never seen the bracket for the 258 so I have no idea what it looks like.

Yeah I gathered from a couple pictures that the bracket seems to lower the alternator and then the york piggybacks it somehow. I just can't see enough of the engine to determine exactly what the bracket looks like, and if there's more than one or not?

Judging by the one I found.. there doesn't look to be an adjustment on it, so is it missing another part? I'm very confused.

I'll dig it out tomorrow and take a pic. It attaches to the bracket. It's the flat curved bracket with the arched slot for adjustment.

Okay that would be great.. are you looking to sell them or are you just informing me of what I should be looking for? Either way I appreciate it!

The second bracket looks more like what you need the first one looks like a stock bracket for a YJ. Here's a link to my OBA build, I used an A/C bracket for a CJ..... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/9...-build-598268/

That's the right right bracket! My diagram shows it has a short belt from the alt to the comp and a longer belt that goes around the comp,alt,wp,and ps... There are a couple of different alt brackets, they have different hole spacing where they mount to the timing cover. You should be able to purchase belts for an 86 cj7 with ac. That bracket is very hard to find here in Ca. because it,s a v belt. out here most had the Sanden instead of the York
