Hi, where does one mount an air con compressor on an 866? I am using a vintage air, air con system behind the dash on this one. and where do the heater hoses get taken from?

thanks

regards Grant

Lower rt. front of the engine driven from the crankshaft sheave. I'll grab you some photos in a couple of hours when I'm at the shop.

Hello, no worries, thank you, so it runs direct off crank shaft then?

its getting there. I cut the cab brace off to, will make again with exhaust there, have sorted the exhaust out now.

the bolts at back of cab, I take it there to mount the exhaust? there is 2 1/2 bolts on either side about 3/4 up the cab. I am running twin 5inch straight through stacks, 5 inch off engine and then into twin 5s.

I've seen the exhaust bands that encircle the mufflers bolted there as mine are and also a bracket the bolts through the rain gutter at the top.

Hi Grant, I told you wrong on the A/C drive. The 866 engine drives the compressor from the auxilary shaft on the rt. front of the engine. I confused trucks......

Here are a few photos. Also the heater hoses pickup on the discharge, and inlet housing of the water pump. You can see this in the photos also.

Hello, I see, thank you, so it looks like I need a pulley, and a gear maybe? to run that air con. I assume its all ready inside the motor, I just need to get the outer drive assembly. would this be correct?

I've never had an 866 apart so don't really know. I'll look into the service manuals for an exploded parts breakdown this afternoon.

Hello, the book I have shows a heap of parts, but doesnt say if I can just pop the cover off and put it all on. I would expect that is the case? if not I may have to run a small pulley off crank?

It looks as if you may need to get the stub shaft and gear that is driven from an existing gear. I don't know if the original cover is sealed with a plug that can be removed, or is blank that would require boring for a support bearing, retainer, and seal.
