WTB: 140 A/C Compressor Brackets for '67 Sport Sedan
Posted by: stitch ()
Date: December 09, 2017 05:09PM

I have searched Clark's several times. Under C for compressor, M for mounts, B for bracket...you get the idea. I had a 65 110 that I put Seth Emerson's distributor in. Now I want to put it in the '67 w/ac. Was told today the I need to get the higher rise brackets that came on the 140's. I'll be darned if I can find them. Unobtainium? or can someone give me a link or point me in the right direction? confused smiley

The Mangler is right. All 67 airvairs had the hi-rise compressor bracket.

And the 66 high mount bracket was different (and all the assorted mounting parts) than the 67. It is maddening I know.
I suspect vair junkie probably has N O S ones in his never ending collection.

Didn't all 67 Corvairs have the emmissions reductions air pump?

I've seen diagrams for an air pump and A/C mounts, not sure if they ever produced it.

Only California (and maybe a few East Coast cities) required emission control equipment in 66 on Corvairs, however 66 model A/C equipped Corvairs were exempted in California from the emissions control requirements.

Yes, all 1967 Corvairs SOLD IN CALIFORNIA came equipped with A I R (smog pumps). It did not become a federal mandate until 1968.
Air conditioning by then in Corvairs was no longer available. But yes, a few cars were made with A I R and A/C.

I aquired this rare setup to go in my 68 convertible. You want to talk about a Rube Goldberg machine of a setup! All I am missing is the idler pulley bracket which I feel will never be found. I plan to make this bracket accept a sanden compressor.

I had a LM MoreDoor with the 4 carb 140 engine and a swapped out sanden A/C compressor.

The sight of that (necessary) high mounted compressor always irked me; made it look kinda-sorta "Rube Goldberg" tacky.

Needed, but awkward looking.

Irked you? That setup always intrigued me. I thought it looked awesome in a clean engine compartment with a nice looking clean set of carbs, air cleaner, fuel lines, etc.

Had it on my original 1969 Monza coupe. Zero issues for the 16 years I owned the car. A.I.R. and A/C fit like a glove. Salvaged a/c from a non CALIFORNIA 1967. Ordered all CALIFORNIA required parts from Patterson Chevrolet in La Mirada in 1971 or 72. Parts delayed because of a strike at GM whse

Heck yeah yenko dude. Still haven’t gotten to putting it on. Plan to just put a sander and pump on and run a belt between the two. Can’t find the pulley setup to make it complete but it doesn’t matter much. If anything just use it without the smog installed.
