Will the 1969 351W AC compressor brackets work on a 302? Reason I ask is in another thread some folks recomended to stick with the factory set up if possible (will upgrade to the new style R-134 AC compressor). I forgot these brackets came with the car (now has 302) when I purchased it.

I can say that 1968 302 compressor brackets are different than 1969 351 brackets because of the taller deck height. I don't know about a newer year set of 302 A/C brackets.

The 1969 351W AC bracket is a 1 year only design for the 351W. the 69 302 uses the same bracket as the 68 302.

The 351W in 70 went to a different bracket and idler/pulley setup like the 70 302.

I hope this helps sir.
