EXCELLENT! Guess who gets my questions when I get started . I'm old school (You don't run AC on a hotrod, but my better half says that's the only way she's going in the summer so...........). I've actually read quite a bit of stuff on doing the AC and even attended the Vintage Air class at the Indpls Good Guys this past year. I think I know what to put where, it's just the terminology gets in the way. I noticed the AC compressor has two belt grooves. I don't have to use both of them do I? It looks like the belt will have contact with at least 2/3 of the pulley, and it will be the only thing on it other than wp & crank. Thanks in advance, I know I'm going to have some basic level type questions but I will start a thread in AC or where ever it should be.
