vintage aftermarket nailhead AC compressor mounting

Recommended Posts

When I purchased my project (59 Lesabre 2 dr hardtop) I noticed all the AC stuff was still in the car. It was a early aftermarket set up. The car came with no motor or trans (I have a rebuilt motor and trans for it) and I am unsure how the compressor mounts on the engine. Many of the engine parts were in the trunk (3 pulley set up for P/S and AC). The compressor is a York I believe (all aluminum). Has anyone seen or have a nailhead with this compressor? Russ Martin was not sure how it mounted. The generator bracket in the trunk is a normal non AC bracket.

Seem that when these cars were contemporary all of the aftermarket a/c suppliers had different brackets/mounts. Pictures may help here, but you will probably have to try to fit it by trial and error. (Sometimes stuff in the trunk does not even go to that car.)
