    Gary:

    I'm sorry, but I called Murray Park; he had one and has sent it to me.

    Thanks again for the offer to help.

    Gary: Yesterday, I made an attempt to remove the existing 383 bracket from the A/C pump, so I could at least post a picture of the bracket. Should be easy. Huh? Nooo. . . The bracket is attached to the pump with long bolts that insert from the front of the pump from behind the clutch / hub assembly. To remove the clutch / hub, a C-3787 puller is required, which of course I don't have. Nothing that should be easy is easy. . . I shall continue to endeavor to persevere. . .

    I just looked at the map to see where Germantown is, when we come down to see the wife's sister next time I may have to stop and see this ride in person. She lives in Annapolis

    You most likely will not need that tool. I usually spin the nut off with impact (easier than trying to hold it). Then just tap lightly around the rear of the clutch perpendicular to the shaft. They have a taper on the shaft which will allow it to just pop right off.
    Good luck.

    Dave told me the trick to remove it.
    It literally fell off and badly bruised my foot using his method. :mad:

    So do it over your lap to catch it.

    Yes. I was already thinking of that, but it must wait until I get around to fixing the A/C.

    You should be able to rent a suitable tool from the parts store... or break your foot Dave's way...

    On the 68's you remove a small bolt from the center and the run a larger bolt in the pushes the clutch off. Some have had issues, with this, method but it worked perfectly for me.
