    ........and the answer is - for those who may be searching for it years from now - when tensions are set: drivers side 12 o'clock, passengers side 8 o'clock.

    Thanks Doofus, yes, that seems like the logical position, but the belt isn't big enough when I do it that way. I'm using the same belt as before removal.

  • 1966 AC Compressor Bracket Idler Pulley Position

    I'm re-installing the AC compressor on my Daytona and don't remember what orientation to position the 2 idler pulley assemblies on the bracket. The Parts books shows both drivers and passengers side idler pulleys at about the 7 o'clock position, as seen from the front. Is that the correct ballpark position, prior to tension adjustments? Pic is my drivers side idler pulley, shown at about the 4 o'clock position, and I know that's not right. '65 uses the same bracket - anybody with a '65 or '66 w/AC 283 that can check theirs?? Appreciated!
