Hi Guys.

I just purchased a 1966 Cyclone GT convertible with 390 4 speed and factory in dash AC.

The previous owner rebuilt the motor, but never finished reinstalling all of the brackets and accessories on the front of the motor, so I am trying to figure it out.

The PS pump is on, but I am not sure if its on the correct bracket.

Photos I have seen on line show 2 tension pulleys on the AC belt, 1 off the alternator bracket, and another off the power steering bracket.

My PS bracket does not have provisions for a 2nd tension pulley.

My bracket is stamped, and the one I saw in the photo looks to be cast...

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Len

if you mean two belts on the P S, i don't recall ever seeing any 60's-70's fords with a double pulley. possibly two on the A C pulley?

Thanks Mike.

Mine is a 66, so my AC and PS brackets are different.....

Here is a pic of what I think they should look like:

Any help with a photo or a part # for the correct bracket would be greatly appreciated...Len
