Default AC Bracket for 430?

Does anyone know the correct casting number for the a.c. compressor support bracket?
Is it cast or steel sheet fabricated?
I was given the casting/engineering number EJB-2882-A as appears in the casting? Thank you, Scott.

Scott, EBJ-2882-A is listed as the part # for a 56 Lincoln, described as: Triangular 3-5/8" x 2-3/4" x 3-3/8" The '56 would not have used the 430. The part # for the 60 is EDJ-2902-B as shown in the Osborne Electrical book. I've just installed the compressor on mine and recall seeing a casting number. It is not accessible now. It is a heavy rectangular casting with a separate 'ear' that bolts to a head bolt.

Scott,
The number you posted, EJB 2882 does not show up in my casting number listings.

It appears that EDJ-2882-B is the correct part number as seen in this photo.

Is this bracket (& others for AC) unique to Thunderbird chassis, or the same with others, using the MEL engine? Thank you, Scott.

Of the 6 430 Squarebirds with air that I've owned/parted all had the bracket pictured above. I've had a later 430 engine with a different style bracket, but I think it may have been an aftermarket one. Here is a photo of this different bracket.

Yes, I agree; it appears to be aftermarket. Thank you, Scott.

Does anyone have a good source for this bracket? I am going to be installing a classic auto air system and this appears to be the missing link.

Default AC Bracket for 430?

Kyle, according to what Carl ~partsetal posted you will need the EDJ-2882-B support bracket. I happen to have good contacts with Classic Auto Air and I can contact them on Tuesday to see what they have to say about this. I do not know how many 430 equipped Squarebirds they have put their CAA "Perfect Fit" system into, but I will find out. It might be that they either supply this bracket, make it in house, or know where to get it. Or maybe, they have not run into this situation in the past regarding a 430 equipped Squarebird. I will find out and let you know what they have to say.

The other suggestion I can make is to put a post in the For Sale/Parts Wanted Forum and ask if anyone owns an 430 AC equipped 1959-1960 Squarebird parts car that you could get that part off of...

I also have a question for you. Is your '59 Squarebird equipped with a 430MEL engine? If not, you probably do not need that mounting bracket, but I will find out.

Kyle, I just talked with Carl ~ partsetal. Carl said that IF you have a 352 equipped '59 or '60 Squarebird with AC, you do NOT need that support bracket. It was only used on a 430 equipped Squarebird with AC. So, which engine do you have in that Bird?
