could someone please explain the engine configuration of AC on a 64 220?

Hi all,

could someone please let me know (or better yet email me a pic ) of the engine set up for a kuhlmeister unit AC for a 1964 220.

1. I know we have a compressor bracket. does this displace the generator? does the generator get moved to a new bracket, or onto the compressor bracket, or stay where it is?

2. is there a second pully (idler pully mounted on the block to keep tension on the belt? where is this pully at, or mount? any pics?

3. the crank pully... mine has 3 grooves now, with only 2 used.. is this the correct pully for an ac car, or do i need to get another pully.

what is the belt configuration.??

i have been on the phone with a lot of vintage MB dealers. no one seems to know. I keep getting different set up info? are there any 220 gurus out there?
a pic would go a long way in helping this hapless newbie out.

thanks again.

The bracket fits beside the thermostat above the generator or alternator.

I'm not familiar with the belt setup though.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
