Someday I should fill out my signature. I do have a 430 in the car. I talked with CAA and they have everything but the bracket, du to it being such a low volume. I will post in the wanted section hopefully sooner than later. Thanks.

I would check with Carl and see if he has one. He is constantly parting out cars so he may have come across one.

Default AC Bracket for 430?

Hi Kyle, you have probably been talking with my CAA contacts then, Steve or Dwight. I have one more that I can call. This may present a real problem, because that part is not all that common. I have already done some searching on it, based on the part number that Carl posted. Your best bet is to post something in the For Sale / Parts Wanted Forum, and hope someone has a 430 AC equipped 1959 or 1960 Tbird or Lincoln equipped parts car you can get that part off of...

I can tell you right now that Carl does NOT have one! I just asked him. He sold the only on he had. He said that if you cannot find one, (and it will probably another of those unobtainian type of parts hard to find) someone is going to have to take a look at that picture posted and see if they can make one to fit..... But, come Tuesday, after the holiday, I will start calling around to all the OEM/used parts houses, give them that part number and see if anyone happens to have one in their inventory... If anyone can find one, that is "The Bloodhound"... Me... as I am known. Once I put my nose to the ground, I don't give up!

I imagine the same bracket was used on Lincolns that had 430's. You might have better luck checking with Lincoln parts places since there were more Lincolns built with that engine than Thunderbirds.

Kyle, I am going to send you a BIG list of Lincoln parts houses selling OEM and old Lincoln parts. Check out the Hemmings listing in particular! There are a lot to check out and see if someone has this part.

Kyle, that bracket off the '62 Lincoln does not look like the one posted in an early post here of what the EDJ-2882-B off a '59 or '60 Squarebird looks like! You may want to find one that came off a '59-'60 Lincoln 430 if possible and see if it looks just like the one in the pic of the EDJ-2882-B. I would think that they were probably using the same mounting bracket for both the '59-'60 Tbird and the Lincoln... Here are a couple of pix for comparison. First the EDJ-2882-B, and then the '62 Lincoln bracket.

Remember the mounting bracket goes according to the type and shape of the compressor and the way it was mounted. If you look at the original picture that Carl posted the compressor is mounted vertically. If you are not using a stock compressor the original mounting bracket may not work anyway. The later one on ebay looks like it fits compressors that are mounted horizontally which is the standard way to mount them.

My suggestion is to contact CAA and see if they have a standard mounting bracket and try it. You may find that a standard bracket works just fine with their compressor. Modern compressors are much smaller than they were in 1959 which is why I believe they had to mount it vertically.
