    Just got an all original 71, 302 2v, auto power steering, and a/c . Somewhere along the way the idler was removed and I want to get it working. My problem is that there doesn't seem to be a consensus on what the correct part is and I can't find a picture of one installed to get a visual on it.
    If someone out there has one of these gems and would be willing to snap and send me a couple of pictures and if you know the correct part number it would be greatly appreciated. I think it may be a DOAZ-8678-C but would like to be sure.

    Thank you in advance

    Hey guys, thanks so much for help. The picture was great, I was able to see that the bracket that the idler arm attaches to was also missing. Got a bracket off ebay and an idler from autoplicty and will wait to see if the compressor works.
