Looks like Aviall has it for $291. Do you have a picture of it. I may have it from when I did my exchange to the single wide belt pulley

I don’t have a good picture of the bracket...attached is what my A&P sent me. I did inspect it personally after this was sent, but didn’t take additional photos. It appears that the previous owner had attempted to fix with a weld...

Thanks,
Chris

If you can’t find it used, may be a good time to switch to a plane power alternator. Mine came with new brackets and I think the whole deal was around 650 if I remember correctly. It would be a shame to pay half that just for a bracket

Planepower isn't going to help this installation... he needs the Piper parts for the alternator assembly on the left side of the engine and has a special set of brackets / arms castings to support the alternator and the idler pulley.

I may have the entire assembly sitting on the shelf in the hangar. We swapped out the left side alternator assy for a customer last year. Unfortunately if you need it quickly I'm not going to be at my hangar until Friday...
