    Ok guys Ive been researching here and online about this A/C. I am wonderimg if the Red Dot Humvee compressor will work can I get it in a double groove pulley configuration, or swap to the correct pulley? I am going to mount the the 3 fan evaporator in the video on the roof of my shelter box or the front wall of it. Any and all advice on the compressor and or other parts is greatly appreciated.

    Ok guys Im looking at a Denso style compressor for a Cat. I can buy the adapter for the AC lines. Not sure of the rotation yet but will find out for sure today. It looks like a I can only use one pulley groove on the inside because the outer is smaller. I can fit it on either side of the engine either on air compressor belt or alternator belt only can use one if I mount it to that side depending on rotation. On a side note the Denso does nt require as much engine power to run as the Sandon style from what I read while researching.
