@wildbill23c - On your dealership AC, is that a Sankyo compressor? I'm trying to wake up brain cells that haven't been used in 30 to 40 years.Maybe these pictures will help. Not sure if all were this way but my ranger's dealer installed AC has an idler pulley on the left of the engine block when facing it from the front, thought that was kind of dumb, pretty sure a regular A/C compressor belt from a factory AC system would work just fine. I was trying to find pics on the internet to post showing the systems but then I thought heck I got a Bronco 2 and a Ranger with the different systems right here at home HAHA!!
Mine doesn't, I'd guess whatever control unit that they had in stock got thrown in and I think that's how they did the A/C installs too with the hackery that took place they did it as quick and cheaply as possible with whatever trash bin parts they could get.The dealer AC will have a ford oval on the HVAC controls wont they?
Atleast my 83 F150 did.
