Default '67 'vert a/c installation questions

I bought a complete Vintage Air system for my '67. It is a 289 with a C4 transmission.

Are there any issues I need to look for when I put this in?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Wayne

So I guess this is an easy install. I'll take photos along the way and post them.

Is your car a factory AC car?

It would be nice to see some pics when you are finished and let us know if you had issues - I am still bouncing back and forth between Vintage Air and Classic Auto Air.

Yes, I've already had issues.
The kit doesn't tell me that I need a 3 groove pulley for the crankshaft which means the trans cooling lines are in the way, or that my radiator overflow bottle will no longer fit, or that I should change my fan to a high volume with a fan clutch.

I'm still working under the hood, haven't gotten to the interior yet.

And after putting the hoses, belts, fan and antifreeze in, I discover my water pump is leaking. So it all has to come out to change the water pump.

Well - at least you can change out the water pump now - it is more of a PITA with the AC compressor and belts in the way.
I have picked up a fan clutch and 6 blade fan (I hope it fits).
Do you also have power steering? Just seems like maybe you could get by with a 2 groove pulley, that is a bummer.

No power steering yet. I'm going to add a Borgeson unit in the future.

I thought a 2 groove pulley would work also but the A/C uses the 3rd groove and the P/S uses the 2nd groove.

Be sure to get a fan shroud also.

So are you just using the original type plastic fan shroud that came on a 20" radiator? I am thinking the last kit from CAA that I helped a guy with had that with it.

I have the plastic original style shroud.

Today i got the water pump replaced along with new hoses and belts. It seems to run a little hotter, maybe have an air bubble.
