What should I do??(A/C-hose's)??

I am replacing my old 350 2 barrel engine which had A/C. with a new ZZ4 350ci crate engine which also has A/C. The original compressor was on the top right hand corner. On the new engine the compressor is on the top left. What hoses do i need to go to the condenser and the evaporator. and any other hose's i will need that will run off the compressor. IS there any thing else i will need?????? Thanks, Fred Westphalen

Is there a way to use the original A/C bracket so the compressor remains in it's original location? Also, define 'right' and 'left' sides of the engine compartment. Is this as viewed from the driver's seat or looking at the front of the car?

BTW, welcome to HR.com, and as usual I encourage all the new people around here to see this educational posting video

I just bought a hose kit for my vintage air kit from yogy's streetrods parts cost was about $105, google yogy's streetrods and you can find their web site, there are other places that sales the kits also. And vintageair.com has the diagrams for the best way for connections, also any radiator shop can clamp the hose fittings after you cut to size.

Luck and rod on

what else?

It's not an old R12 system, is it? There are adapters for the GM compressor enabling you to use the streetrod hose kits. I put the drier in the fenderwell of my 55 and ran the hoses there as well. Just a thought. Bill
