i had to move the compressor to take the valvecover off.
i just removed i believe 4 bolts and left the brackets in place on the engine.
when i got it all loose and went to move it 2 big washers fell on the ground.
the belt now is a little out of line and i dont know where the wahers go.
i may have even put them there myself a long time ago to help with alignment.
mine is a v belt system and the compressor is on the driver side.
besides that one long sleeve that goes on the longest bolt ,are there washers somewhere to?
one is about 1-1/4 dia and about 1/4 thick.

My 84 doesn't have washers on the AC Compressor bolts. Good luck.

This is from the parts book. Maybe this can help?

When my local Chevy dealership, with a 50 years history, was forced into closing by the corporate I made an effort to buy some of the old old books he had in his 10' long rack of parts books. I was a regular at that parts counter and bought thousands of dollars worth of parts there in the days. Even bought a new 02 SS from him. But to late, someone had beat me to it, they bought all the books lock, stock, and barrel. I just wanted a couple.

Those old book are priceless when it comes to putting a puzzle together.

I have an 86, no washers anywhere.

Gotta do what you gotta do. Apparently, either something is bent, or some pulleys may have been swapped or other brackets causing the misalignment. You need to check to see which way you need to "shim" that compressor to get it aligned correctly, or you're going to wear something out prematurely.

I got my 86 when it was two years old so I can't say for sure that it's factory but mine had washers installed also. The washers were black in color and looked factory (not chrome like washers from a hardware store). I found out the same way when I removed the compressor and they fell out. When I installed the compressor,I just had to keep moving them around until the belt alignment was straight. However,I took all of that off last year when I installed a belt setup from a 90 Camaro so I can't help on where I placed them. Maybe even try a Camaro forum as they used the same setup on v belt Camaros.

If you look at part #7 on the page shown above there is washer/spacer that is welded to that bracket on the right end. By chance that washer spot weld may have broke and washer is now free?
