Randy

I bet that you have the same problem. Let me know where to find bracket or the other choice is to make new bushing that would take out the movement in bracket the system.

What metal is the A/C bracket made from aluminum, or cast iron, or?

Here are 2 pics of the belts and a/c on my coach. As you can see the alignment is off by a good deal. Never lost a belt, just a matter of time. Looks like another common problem. Sign me up for the fix or a new bracket

Peter Chin posted these drawings 3 days ago.

Thanks Peter!

I hope you don't mind me reposting them.

If we can't locate any new parts and if there is any interest I'll check on cost to have them manufactured.
