A/C Brackets HELP!!!!!!

Hey all. I'm doing a big block to small block swap. I think I have all the small block brackets I need. Can anybody show me how and where these brackets mount?

specs: 327 with A/C 1966 Impala.

I'm at a dead end trying to figure this out!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are the brackets I don't know about:

I replied to your other topic posted but now that I look at your engine and compressor I realize what you are dealing with. I'd say you need to find an assembly manual for a 66. Just guessing I'd say the cast iron one goes on the bottom front pivot and bolts to your water pump (flipped opposite from the picture) since it has an offset mount like the water pump. The stamped steel one goes on top to the belt adjuster slot, most likely on top of the cast iron lower mount to the water pump- I just can't figure out why it has the 2nd offset bend with the hole- perhaps other brackets missing? Also looks like there should be another back pivot bracket(s) for the compressor that mounts to the #2 exhaust port bolts.

I played in Photoshop. Here is what I was thinking: the angles were hard to fudge from your bracket picture but maybe this will help.
