Default A/C Question

Is the air conditioning system on the 430 motor, the same as the 352 motor, I have purchased a 1960 T Bird with a 430 motor(motor shot) with air & would like to install the A/C system in my 1960 Bird Convertible that has a 352 motor.

I would imagine it's the same except for the compressor mounting brackets. You'll probably also need the pulleys and some brkts off am AC equiped 352.

The system is the same except for the brackets and pulleys. You should be able to trade those brackets and pulleys for a 352 system, since the 430 is much rarer, but still in demand.

Alexander,

Does an AC equipped one have a fan clutch? I looked at an AC eq S/roof a week or so ago (352 pwr'd) and it had a wierd looking hub for the fan.


Thanks,
John

ps
computer/camera problems. I'll have those fan shrd pics soon (I hope)

A clutch fan was first used in the 1961 Thunderbirds. All 1958-60 Thunderbirds with air had a plain five blade fan.
