I didn't know it, but it looks very clean, much better than the original "V-twin".

Yeah, that's the one.  Nice clean look, I was just wondering on how well that alternator drive belt from the compressor works.  I'm guessing it would be fine, but...would be nice to here from someone who has used the setup.

(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif) I always kinda liked the V-twin compressor... must be a leftover from my Harley Days, that was 40 years ago... yikes!

I retrofitted my wagon to a Sanden AC compressor...with engine bay kits from bouchillon.  I kept my AC compressor up high, in the original location with one of their mounting kits. And have had no problems with it.

If you look at the set-up your considering, you can see that the AC compressor runs one belt to the alternator, and one off the main crank/water pump.  So actually you'd be running your alternator off the AC compressor.

When I retrofitted the system on my old 70 sport fury...it was still running the RV2 compressor.  I can tell you that although that sucker is huge, and draws a large amount of power from the motor...I have never had a better cooling AC system.

That thing would literally ice up the front window in the middle of summer...it was a friggin meat locker in the car!(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)

R-12 was and still is a better Freon for A/C, always felt colder than this 134a garbage
