    WTD: L98 /LS2 /L76 /LS3 etc AC compressor bracket

    Chasing the one with two pulleys. Anyone got one laying around that wasn't used in their mini conversion?

    Come on there must be 100 people with unwanted AC bts leftover from their LS swap. Hook a whitey up

    They will fit the block but won't line up with the balancer.

    Thanks for the info before I went and bought a new LS1 compressor today! I guess I'll stick with the Delphi compressor and PWM control. Still chasing the twin pulley bracket if anyone has one laying around

    I dunno if it's any help but marks 4wd do a bracket that mounts the early compressor so it lines up with the late pulley offset. Makes it hug the block much closer too

    Yeah I've seen that. I've milled my OE bracket down to get the clearance I need already so would like to use that. Plu snot overly keen to spend another $750 on this AC system before lines. Who knows, surely I'll get bitten by the 'tight arse pays twice' mantra.

    I don't have a lot of faith in an aftermarket bracket like Mark's adaptors. The stock LS pulley system chucks belts so I'd be surprised if Mark's one doesn't do that. Probably fine on a low power Patrol/Landcruiser.

    But Clayton I'm keen to try and make the VE variable vane one work!

    I know you are you stubborn bastard LOL.

    I used the Alan Grove bracket with the Sanden compressor.

    I used the marks one on an LSA into a VZ GTO I did recently. It's a good bit of gear belt wise but need a bit of cutting to clear the LS1 sump and engine mount... and pricey for what it is

    That's marks to a tee.

    Expensive and highly likely it doesn't fit perfect.

    To OP I had a look for the bracket looks like I threw it out.

    I have that same marks bracket, had to grind down the sump and block to get it to fit. Too expensive for what it is
