  1. I saw you used the CAA A/C unit.  I was thinking of buying the complete unit for my wife.  I looked into this and found several pulley issues.  One guy used his alternator to power the unit with a long belt.  I saw that you used a factory style kit.  I am not sure what to do.  I could just go with the alternator type for now.  If it fails go with the 3 groove pulley.  What do you think?

      I picked up a 3-groove pulley from a parts car, and a factory idler pulley set from one of the members here.  There's also an adapter for a Sanden compressor from CAA/Old Air that ties the factory idler pulley to the Sanden compressor.  I went that route because CAA said to run a longer belt on the power steering pump circuit... I wasn't too keen on having 4 pulleys on a V-belt.  I suppose it's doable and someone else did that with no issues (I can't remember who mentioned that).

      If you don't have power steering, that would be a super long belt and I'm not even sure how all 4 pulleys would work, especially with the alternator on the passenger side with the A/C compressor on the driver side.

      Hope that helps!
