    I'm using Alan Grove brackets for my Sanden compressor and power steering pump. They are a great product and i'm very pleased with them. My question is, has anyone using these brackets incorporated a idler pulley for the AC compressor belt? If so, what did you use? Thanks

    I thought that bracket was setup to use the serpentine built that works on the water pump and steering? AT least I think it is when you use the one that comes with the Vintage air setup.

    I'm using the V-belt type. I guess no one else is using this set up. Im really happy with it, used a Sanden type compressor and made my own AC lines, it works really well with stock condenser, evaporator and dryer.
    The belt length seems a little long. I will keep up the research.
