I have the engine out of my 72 350 SLC for a rebuild. I need to remove the AC Compressor before sending the engine for a rebuild. There seems to be a plate that the compressor is attached to with two bolts holding it to the block on the frontside of the engine. There also are 4 bolts in a square behind the clutch.

This is all that I can see that seems to be holding the compressor on. The 4 bolts behind the clutch, to me, do not look like they hold the compressor to the block.

What gives? At least, what will give in order for me to remove the compressor?

Thanks,

Steve

There are bolts in the front bracket going through the timing cover as well as 2 bolts on the back side of the compressor.

Thanks.

With your reply and a little light, I was able to see the total of 6 bolts that hold the bracket on. Two are 13 mm heads on the front side. Two are, I believe it was 7 mm hex on the right side. The two I did not initially see are two very well hidden hex cap screws behind the bracket in front. One of these has to have the pulleys turned to allow you to push the allen wrench by the slot in the pulley to get to it. With all those removed, the bracket comes off with ease.

Whew.

Thanks,

Steve

This is one of my "I don't want to do jobs" but it comes with the territory. Have fun.
