1970 Small Block AC Brackets

Can anyone post images of ALL brackets used by the factory to mount a stock ac compressor onto a small block engine in a 1970 C10?

Thank you.

I don't have access to photos since photobucket blocked third party use of my images, but if I remember correctly there are seven pieces.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: 1970 Small Block AC Brackets

How does the front thick bracket bolt to the motor?

Yeah i want to see where the bracket attaches down at the water pump area. And that long pivot bracket, how do I adapt it with headers? Some thick spacers?

Re: 1970 Small Block AC Brackets

Don't know how you would adapt the stock bracket with headers as one spans and fastens to the exhaust manifold bolts. You can't use the stock brackets on an aftermarket aluminum intake either in my past experience.

Wow, maybe I just go with a sanden aftermarket compressor and brackets.

That would be easier. I had to when I swapped mine. Classic air has a kit and that's what I bought.

Here are some pictures of the brackets installed.
The alternator is the best out of them. The others are so so.
