The boxes are from a nearby store for free. I didn't consume them all. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Mounted the A/C compressor, alternator, and fan pulley. I have to give Vintage Air (VA) credit for the attention to detail. Alignment everywhere is very good. Things are in close proximity but they left room to sneak the lower rad. hose up and behind the alternator.
I will run the belts in configuration per their suggestion in post #51 above. They advised to source a 5/8" by 58" belt for the compressor. Coincidentally, both belts are the exact same length. No one here stocks that 5/8" belt so waiting yet again for parts. I believe the reason VA calls out a 5/8" belt is that the more-readily-available 1/2" belt would bottom out in the 2F crank and water pump pulleys.
With the "too wide" Toyota 16mm belt temporarily on the compressor, the front of the compressor is close to the rad. filler neck. I believe (hope) the proper 5/8" belt will settle into the pulley farther and "run" longer. That should adjust the compressor downward and outward toward the passenger side and away from the neck. There is the option to run a 59" belt too, but I didn't want to tip the compressor any further on its side. Sanden states the oil fill hole can run a full 90 degrees to either side of vertical. I'm not close and I don't want to be.
