I have factory air on my 1974 260 (with what looks like an original Hitachi compressor). I need a compressor and I am going to get one from the junkyard. QUESTION: Will any Hitachi compressor on a '70-'83 Z or ZX fit the factory bracket, and assuming they fit, will they do the job (assuming I find one that still works)?

I don't know the difference between rotary and piston.
It is driven by a belt and looks the same as all the compressors I have seen on 280's. It is a Hitachi, Part Number A8937. Any info. you have on what year Z's had compressors that will fit as a replacement would be appreciated

I haven't tried one from another year Z or ZX, but they sure look identical, don't they? I already have the bracket, so I guess I'm all set.


Motorsport charges $275 for a rebuilt, and my U-Pull it junkyard charges like $20 bucks. The choice is obvious.
