    Would this A/C kit preclude a turbo based on it's location?

    Will there be enough clearance for the fan once you install the pulley spacer?

    Ken; Yes I test-fit the fan before I had the spacer fabricated. Will have about a half-inch clearance. I’m waiting on a v-belt for the compressor tomorrow and then I will complete the front of the engine and post photos. I was also concerned that the compressor belt might hit the lower radiator hose but that is not an issue. After fixing the shortcomings of the kit, it seems everything will work as designed. Time will tell.

    Well I believe I am finished with the A/C compressor install. I had to make another modification to the bracket kit - I relocated the attachment point of the front adjustment bracket, as the attachment point from CPI didn't make much sense nor would it have provided very much strength to keep the belt tight. The kit attachment point had the bottom of the bracket bolted right under the compressor, which is really dumb and would not have maintained belt tension, so I drilled a new hole right under the bottom alternator through-bolt and attached the bracket at the new location for more strength.

    Overall, I am disappointed in the engineering and fit/finish of the CPI kit. If I had not possessed my mechanical and engineering skills, there is no way the kit would have bolted in place and performed as desired. Anybody contemplating this modification with the intention of purchasing/installing the CPI kit should pay attention to the issues I discovered and documented in this thread. I am comfortable with the kit after I made the modifcations, however it would be a mistake for anybody to think they can simply purchase the kit and bolt in on. Knowing now what I do, if I had to do it over again on another CUCV I would fabricate my own brackets. Anyway, here are a few photos before I re-install the fan -

    Guys, Sharecropper (Mike) is dealing with some fairly significant health issues right now. I just wanted to take the time to ask you guys to keep him in your thoughts and prayers (if you pray). You would be hard pressed to find a better guy than Mike and I am happy to call him my friend. In addition to me, I know he has inspired countless others with this build thread alone. Wishing Mike a speedy recovery!

    No plants were harmed making this post however several free electrons were horribly inconvienced ....

    Remember when someone says they are an "EXPERT"... an "EX" is a "has been" and a "SPERT" is a "little drip!"...
