Ok guys, I have an issue. I'm rebuilding (& upgrading) a 73 Newport. Previous owner got rid of the AC (probably because it didn't work) but left the compressor intact, as the way it's laid out, the alternator needs the compressor pulley. I did manage to find a side bracket to relocate the alternator but now it seems that may have been premature, as I may need to buy another alternator made specifically for non AC cars. Living in sunny Florida, AC ain't a bad idea. And since I'll be moving to Texas soon, it seems doubly so. So far I've located a rebuilt original style V2 compressor, dryer and expansion valve, but no hoses, aside from a handful of DIY 'kits'. My issue is will the fittings work right for a classic style compressor? I'd rather have the assurance of buying the right part the 1st time. It would be preferable to buy the hoses premade and no guesswork involved, just bolt on and go. So my question to y'all is: Where did you source your hoses from? Are there premade hose assemblies that will bolt onto a C Body Fusilage car, no questions asked? Is there anything specific I need to look for or ask of the vendor selling a DIY kit?
