AC bracket

My 62 has an air condition unit. I've never tested it
since its' missing the idler pulley. See image attached
Where can I buy this pulley , so I can put a belt
for the a/c ?

No idler pulley is listed for 1961/62 (basic part number 8678). This pic is from the 1957/63 Ford truck parts catalog and is specifically for 1963.

I'd post the correct parts catalog pic, but there isn't one for 1961 or 1962, because Ford did not offer A/C for these trucks until 1963.

The A/C in your truck was probably swapped in by a previous owner, probably from a 1964 or 1964. Or your truck is a 1963.

thank you for the reply. All paperwork I have states that this is a 62 but it could be a later build. Or like you stated the previous owner could have added it. All hoses
condensor and inside unit seem to be working. The compressor spins freely, i just
need the correct pulleys to run a belt to it.

Try one of the aftermarket suppliers like Classic Auto Air or Vintage Air or the other one whose name I can't think of. Once upon a time I know that CAA used to sell bits like that but that was a few years ago. Good luck with your search.

I have this same setup for my 64 I could take a picture of the idler pulley if you need a reference photo. I would need to dig it out of my box but I know I have it.

its a pretty simply pulley set up Iím sure if you canít find one someone could fab one up for you fairly easily. Iím in the opposite boat I have the brackets and the pump but I donít have the in cab parts somewhere along the line they were removed and I have no idea what it even looks like

Yes, unfortunately, the wonderful, free hosting site has decided to blackmail all its users into paying for its service after years of no charge storage and retrieval.

So, I've spent literally hours removing my pics from Photobucket and storing them on my hard drive. I refuse to be swindled.
