Merc 6.9 Euro idler pulley and bracket
 
Hi, has anyone have for sale an A/C idler pulley and bracket (carrier) to suit 6.9 Euro engine? Car was purchased without this so never had the aircon operational. Also any info on where to purchase new aircon compressor if original compressor does not work correctly. Thanks.

According to the 1977 data book the compressor is the same as other V8 models from the era. Under the covers its a GM A6 with metric fittings.

There are now reproduction A6's available such as this one:

You would need to double check fitting but I put something similar on my 450SLC and was happy with it.

Styria may be able to help with the pully etc.

Here’s some pics of mine which I can’t sell since they’re going back in the car.

Hello, does anyone know of 6.9 Euro engine for parts? Idler pulley with tensioner needed. Thanks

Do you know that this is unique to the euro engine? If its shared with the aussie one or even the 450 might be easier to find.

Re: Merc 6.9 Euro idler pulley and bracket
 
Does not share with the 4.5Litre engine. The Aussie 6.9 has the auto trans pump as part of the idler pulley and a different adjustment system so I would rather not modify it to fit the Euro engine. The Euro engine has a simple tensioner and pulley. Thanks for your comments.

Not looking great ATM. Perhaps you can get one fabricated?

I have been in touch with Colin and have actually been able to locate a pulley and adjustment bracket for him. Luckily enough, as a result of moving all of my cars and parts to Seven Hills, it has been easier to locate the parts he needed. It's good to be able to help him. Regards Styria
