vintage air ac with a muncie 4 speed any issues?

im thinking about running a vintage air ac system in my 67 with a Muncie 4 speed wide ratio and a 355 posi rear end.


I was told that its a bad idea due to the Muncie 4 speed with the 355 gears will wind the ac compressor too high for too long burning it up? didn't make since to me is why I asked here ANY THOUGHTS? I can go down to 308 rear gears if needed, ny car was a orig ac car and I want the system here in texas

The Muncie has 1:1 final drive ratio. Same as any other non OD tranny. No issues with AC compressor.

I just checked for availability of Sta-lube GL-4 85-90 gear lube. Only the 'corporate' NAPA stores have it in stock. About $9/quart. Buy 2 for a total refill.
