    Default WTB - Complete A/C KIT FMTV 1997 Cat 3116

    Hi All,
    I have been reading up a bit on the A/C units for the FMTV, but I can't seem to find a complete ready to go kit. Is there such a thing? I am interested in the Gen2 version with all the parts necessary to fit it and get it running. Thanks in advance!

    I’m pretty sure scottmandu has what you need... I’m not sure about gen2 vs gen1. He would be able to tell you.

    I have everything but compressor and the AC mount that mounts on the motor mount. The AC motor mount bracket I already installed and not going to take it off. Believe I bought Gen 2 unit.

    How well is this set up working? Can this be done with the older v belt 3116? Thanks!

    Blows 41 when it is 90 to 95. I am sure it would. You could just use one of the V belts off the alternator if you can get the compressor in line with it.

    Sounds great! Does the bracket mount to the alternator mounting bolts or another area? Would be great to see a photo of what it mounts too. Is that a custom pulley on the alternator, or just 2 pulleys? Thanks!

    Correction I took off the lower mount that was on the motor mount. Just need the compressor and lines.

    Do you have the driver side or passenger side mount?

    Honestly on an LMTV i would just get a roof mounted compressor unit and add a single cylinder yanmar diesel L70 on the side in a box somewhere, hooked to a 4 or 5000 watt generator(tapered style) and hooked to an inverter. runs on 1 pint of fuel an hour. and 10x the cooling power of the truck ran unit. and alot cheaper.
