    Vintage air lists a compressor mount bracket for Studbaker v8, it looks to be a complete water pump manifold, has anyone had any experience with this? their part#151590-SSA. I was suprised to find studebaker listed.

    I am positive it is a bracket only deal Mark. You can do a search here, AC brackets have been discussed here many times.

      Purchased the Stude'/Vintage Air bracket and pulley a couple years ago. The pulley is quite massive (sollid steel, 1 1/4" thick) and would not work w/ the Avanti style ballancer - They were great and let me return the pulley for credit. The bracket is specific to the left (drive) side or right (pass) side - you need to decide before ordering. Very high quality, well made. Give them a call - They are very helpful.
      Best of luck, Paul K

        I plan to call Vintage air on Monday, the reason I thought it might be the water pump manifold, is that is what Summit racing has pictured, while $189 seemed cheap for the manifold, but pricey for the bracket. I don't plan to buy from Summit they just came up on a Web search

          I bought all of my under the hood AC for my R1 Hawk from Vintage and it fit perfectly. However you need to tell them if you have PS or not since the brackets are different depending upon which one you have. They used to not list the PS one on their website but they do have it.

            I talked to Vintage air this morning, they have the installation instructions listed on their website. Duh!
