    Lextech's A/C Bracket Kit

    Kit Parts.jpgI just finished making an A/C bracket kit that will allow the stock A/C compressor and lines to be used when doing a Gen3 install. I have seen a lot of 96-2000 GMT400 to Gen3 swaps that just delete the A/C system. I looked into it and couldn't find a kit that I really liked. So, I thought I would try to make my own. Here is what I came up with.Tensioner.jpgAlt Clearance.jpgBolts and Coil.jpgFront View.jpg
    I made 5 kits just to see if there is any interest in it. The nubs need to be cut off of the A/C compressor bolts to fit the bracket and the #1 coil needs to be moved over at the top to clear the compressor. I don't have a GEN3 engine in my truck. I have measured about 40 times and it should have plenty of hood clearance.

    Looks like a great setup, should let you use the original AC lines?

    seriously, the 1996-2000 trucks have the A/C on the driver side? I did not know this.

    The kit cost is $275.00 shipped. It includes the brackets and hardware for the Alternator and A/C Compressor and a Tensioner Pulley. The entire kit uses Metric hardware that is 10mm x 1.5 thread pitch. The compressor bracket is powder coated and the alternator bracket is bare 6061 Aluminum. You will need to cut the "nubs" off of your 4 A/C compressor bolts and grind/file the "nub" off of your stock tensioner to allow the supplied pulley to fit. It does not come with a belt. A Gates #25061066 belt should fit. You can get the belt at your local auto parts store. There are at least 2 different Alternator and A/C compressor pulley sizes that might be on your setup. For that reason, it is really not feasible to supply a belt.
