A/Cond pumps

sbc power plant with V belt setup, building a 46 chevy truck, made brackets for a 130c alt and have on hand a ford ranger A/C pump which froze you out, it was removed and capped. But was wondering if it was worth making brackets for this style of pump or going with a different mfr style for dependability, any insight or knowledge would be grateful. I love bone yard pickings. Plan on using GM suburban rear A/C unit for the cab which is small and enough for the cab and easily hidden. And intend on using new lines to shape inside engine compartment. Would like some positive feedback, first build.

If that one works and fits nicely use it. All a/c pumps are descent now. Your deciding factor now might be brackets. If you use a GM pump you can get pump and brackets at a junk yard ( yeah I'm that old ).If you use the Ford pump you'll have to make them.The one you have now works and doesn't leak.
When you install your system install the biggest and thickest condenser you can. Easier on the system colder inside. My favorite compressor? Frigidaire's A-6. It was so good Rolls-Royce used them.
