    C3CBB242-E978-4E49-8120-00E5F89E4BEC.jpgi had to tweak the hardware in my waterloo compressor kit, i don't remember the exacts but here is my post on it https://www.steelsoldiers.com/showth...=1#post2124297 i put washers behind the fan to get the blades off the compressor snout, still had to bend a little wiggle in the back side of each blade.
    haven't constructed the rest of the system yet as another project moved up front and now that its fall it may end up spring before i build the evap

    edit to add condenser fitment pic, it's a generic parallel flow kit with a drier/pressure switch and a few fittings, was 60-70 delivered

    Here is a sheet I worked up when I was doing my trucks with the Humvee kits. Not sure about the #10 at the compressor it maybe a #12. Hope this helps.

    Well started installing compessor and the belts are too short kinda figured they would be so have to take measurements and get new ones. I only had one other issue so far with a bolt but made a stud and got it to work. I ll get videos up as soon as new belts are aqiured.

    Ok guys I had to go through 4 different belt sizes to get the correct length. I had to change some of the hardware out and use shims. I also had to trim roughly a half inch off my nylon fan blades very easy to do with lexan hobby scissors. I have the duel voltage alternator and that pulley as well as AC pulley were bigger so needed different belts. The belts were 55" long. I got everything tightened up started truck ran at idle and very high rpm good to go. I won't know until all the system is hooked up how compressor with do with a load on it. I'll post a video or 2 tomorrow.
