AC Compressor Mounting Woes, belts, etc. *pics*

So, still working on putting AC in my new project. Found a mount at the junkyard for the style AC compressor designated for this truck. Bought a new compressor, and nothing seems to align just right. The pulleys just don't match up!

Take a look, let me know what you think,

Maybe use fender washers to space the bracket back.

Am I seeing the pics right? There appears to be an unused groove between the alt and PS belts. If so, I bet either the pump gets spaced back to use that middle groove, or has a different pully for the A/C to be installed.


Also, if you live where it's hot enough to go thru the effort to add A/C, you're going to want to upgrade to the factory A/C radiator. That tiny non-A/C radiator isn't going to be capable of keeping the engine cool, especially in slow speed traffic.

The above diagram shows the PS belt in the middle groove, and the A/C belt out front. Something isn't right with the PS belt location. Granted, my truck has the PS belt out front, but my dealer added A/C has the compressor sitting directly above the alt, and dual belts that go around the crank, alt, A/C and WP. The air pump was driven by a narrow belt that goes from WP to AP only.

Either your PS pump needs shimmed back, or the pulley has to be changed to free up that groove for the A/C belt.

The WP and crank pulley should be different on ac vehicles IIRC.

My '82 F100 has dealer installed air. The A/C pulley has two grooves, and the belt goes in the groove closest to the compressor. My power steering pump has spacers (about 5/8" thick) between the PS pump and bracket so it uses a groove on the crank pulley further back than it would without the dealer air.

I think I just found what compressor was originally on this truck. Does anyone know what this compressor cross references to in terms of stock applications?

Randy yours is the same compressor as mine they call it an FS6, you have dealer installed air, asfor the original poster, it looks like you need another pulley on the crank.

Which is apparently factory-installed and looks like the image below.

Ryan - what year is your truck again? The parts catalog shows myriad factory installations, but isn't yours dealer-added?
