    There will be very little standard about this installation, accessories included. Once they're bolted up I will run a measuring tape around them to get a belt length. Parts houses sell belts in half inch increments.

    Farrar,

    The SD-709 is an (R-12 compressor). See if you can find an SD7H15 (134a compressor) in the same configuration. If you end up swapping heads the new head will come with a new gasket. 22 ft lb head bolt torque.

    Thanks! That's already taken care of. If you look carefully at the photo I posted you can see that it is an R-134a unit.

    I can't contain my excitement. I am so thrilled that I will have, potentially, a reliably running vehicle in my possession for the first time since June.

    Tell Heninger to hurry up, Bill. :P

    Update: I've got steady work for the month of September, and I can't pass up that opportunity, so work will be pushed back until October. (For those of you not in the know: I dropped to half-time with my curent employer when I went back to school in August '15, to graduate in May '16. He is now refusing to hire me back full-time so I am catching what I can while I seek other employment.)

    Stay tuned...

    Take your time. July was the hottest month in recorded history. August isn't doing any better. Personally the idea of waiting until things cool off a little bit in the fall thrills me greatly.

    Jib crane is out of service anyway (I am modifying it to use an electric winch).

    Me, too.

    Long range weather forecasts for your area predict highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s in the month of October, with chances of light rain showers most days and some possibilities of afternoon thunderstorms with slightly warmer weather toward the end of the month (mid to upper 70s to low 80s). Looks like it would be fine weather for working in a shady spot.

Sounds like you've got a pretty good plan laid out. I'm looking forward to following your progress. Best of luck!

    looking to do the 3.0 swap too, keep the thread going...

    I thought you were doing an LS swap?

    Anyway the 3.0 is an easy mechanical swap, bolts in like the stock PRV

    The wiring is where it gets tricky.
