Big block chevy A/C brackets question

Smitty1962 on Mon November 05, 2007 8:58 AM User is offline

Year: 1984
Make: Chevy
Model: K10
Engine Size: 402ci

I just finished replacing the 305 in my son's '84 Chevy pickup with a 1972 402ci big block. I've gotten my alternator and power steering brackets taken care of, but so far can't figure out the A/C brackets. I've found brackets on ebay for big blocks, but they're all for the long compressor and we've got the short one.

Any help as to where I could locate brackets or direction to a picture of what they even look like (I have a buddy with lots of old brackets, but honestly don't know what I'm looking for) would be greatly appreciated! Not really looking for any fancy milled aluminum brackets or a serpentine system, just a basic bracket setup that will work with the short compressor on this engine.

The R4 compressor was used on big blocks in pickups and Suburbans (probably vans) to some extent. A 1995 3/4 ton Suburban with dual air is one I know of in particular (could they have thought of anything worse to do an R4?). Whether the brackets are completely compatible with and older block is unknown.
