Default Engine swap ac compressor problems

I got a Japanese motor to put in my 07 Tribeca I got the motor in every thing almost put back together. I get to the air conditioner I can't put back in my old air conditioner because the bracket is completely trashed from whoever owned it before me. Where the idler pulley goes it's not salvageable and I can't put the bracket from the Japanese motor on my air conditioner because it's a 3 bolt bracket. The Japanese air conditioner has 4 wires going to it an American air conditioner only has one. Does anybody know what I can do that doesn't cost money??????

Can you buy a new bracket? It's not going to be easy to do much else.

no cost option = repair the existing bracket. helicoil/timeserts can repair hogged out threads. and there are other ways to repair it as well. post a picture of that damaged area.

this fails your "doesn't use any money" qualifier but the easy solution is to get a used bracket, supply far outstrips demand so you're talking pocket change.
