What am I missing here? 200 1993


I'm currently up to my knees in this new to me 1993 Volvo 245 and making slow progress especially with it being so cold here in Maryland.

Today I started back at it and I tackled the power steering and a/c compressor mount, which I just replaced all the OEM bushings with new rubber bushings.

The car has R-134a and the compressor is slightly different from those that had R-12. What I'm struggling with is as follow(s):
1. The rear bracket that attaches to the a/c compressor in the rear of the compressor is far from being able to be attached. Please see the following picture to see what I'm talking about.

2. The power steering pump pulley seems to be somewhat off now from the a/c compressor pulley, though this might all go away once I have belts on, though I do not remember it being this way on the other cars that I have done this replacement to. See the picture below to get an idea of what I'm talking about.

Finally, one additional photo of how the a/c compressor is attached to the bracket at the bottom.

If anyone can tell me what I'm doing wrong here I would greatly appreciate it. I need to fix this problem now before I go to much farther in putting things back together.

Thanks in advance,
