AC Bracket Picture requests


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

Does anybody have a pic of an A/C compressor bracket? I took the day off today to do my radiator swap... After my honey-do list was complete it was 3pm before I got into the garage...I got the radiator out w/o incident, as well as the old condenser left over from a long since decommissioned a/c unit that the dealer installed back in 72....

My original plan while removing the radiator was to rr the water pump, clean 36 years of oil sludge off the engine, chase down a horrific oil leak from one of the timing covers, and get the a/c system out....I'm having a hell of a time getting the compressor and the bracket off....perhaps someone, like CD has a diagram or picture of the bracket? Oh, and I'm not sure what type of compressor it is, ie. sanden, fridgeking, etc. It seem like I either can't see, can't reach, or just can't find the points where it attaches to the block...

thanks for taking a look at my post!

The york brackets (square compressor) wrap around the motor & have 2 water pump bolts that go through them, & most have a tab under 1st cylinder ex manifold nut. the sanden types (round compressor) do not wrap around & only have bolts into side of block & some have one ex manifold bolt also. See my post from last year to see pics of both. In both cases, you have to unbolt the compressor from the bracket, then unbolt the bracket from the block, because there is a bolt into the side of the block you can't get to with the compressor in the way.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
