belt routing 69 coupe

I'm about to install Vintage Air Gen IV setup and also power steering on my 69 coupe. I believe I need a three groove crank pulley, a two groove water pump pulley. Then one belt will go over crank pulley, water pump, and alternator,`and another belt will go over crank pulley and AC compressor, third belt over crank pulley and power steering Can somebody tell me if this is correct? Thanks

Re: belt routing 69 coupe

he has a 1969 so only one water pump was available and assuming that you have the alternator on the passenger side you should have 3 belts on that set up i believe one for each accessory all driven off the crank..now my memory is a bit hazy on this so I'm sure some more folks will be better help than me .. I do know that getting Oil into the PS is a real pain with an AC car because it is kinda tucked down in under the compressor. Anyway the PS should go Crank to PS and the alt runs Crank/water pump/alt lastly the AC should run Crank/water pump/ac.

so i believe you are correct.

Re: belt routing 69 coupe

Isn't my compressor going to be on the passenger side, below the alternator with my power steering on the driver side?

Re: belt routing 69 coupe

My theory is: (starting from the engine)
1. Crank, w/pump & alternator.
2. Crank, PS, A/C, & w/pump.
3. Crank & PS.

Re: belt routing 69 coupe

RJ, you need to talk to vintage air or your VA vendor regarding pulley and belt setups.

The original setup is as Everett said, and the A/C compressor mounts high on the drivers side, and yes, make it a bit of a pita to add power steering fluid.

3 groove crank pulley, 2 groove water pump pulley, 2 groove power steering pulley, and single groove compressor puley.

That said, VA does not use the old style compressor, and they don'y use factory pulley's and brackets. They use Alan Grove I think, and AG has a LOT of options.

either way you're looking at a 3 belt system which means you need 3 groove pulley on the crank and your compressor's stock location is above the power steering reservoir on the drivers side .. different kits may have different locations.

Re: belt routing 69 coupe

Holy cow, that sure took a bad turn!!!
I don't really want the compressor on the driver side, plumbing too long.
I have the three groove crank pulley and two groove water pump pulley already, amazingly enough, they were on the motor when I bought the car, even though there was no AC or PS. I changed them, but still have them, what a miracle. The other issue, i'll have to address yet. Wasn't expecting that.
Thanks guys for letting me know all that.
I'll see what I can find out.
