Here is the compressor I just put in my WB. It is the same for an FC I believe.

You need to get in touch with Mark at Auto Air Authority here in Houston. He helped someone on the group last year with this. He has a bracket to convert the york boat anchor to a sanden compressor. Much lighter and 10x more efficent. I buy all of my a/c parts from him and very very rarley see a failure, and I do a LOT of A/C's here in Houston. Mark is very friendly and customer oriented, will ship, and goes the extra mile for his customers.
His number is 713-460-0007. Regular business hours. Central Time.
If I remember correctly, the bracket, fittings, compressor(new not reman) ,x-valve and drier were in the $350 - 400 range.
If Mark has any questions tell him to give me a call.
He can also supply your a/c needs for any vehicle at prices I promise you will never match. He has kits for most NORMAL cars at $234.00 Compressor(new not reman), drier, x-valve or orfice, o-rings and oil. Usually you cannot by a reman compressor at the parts house for that

Hi Rob,

If you decide to go with the York (now TCCI) be careful to get the correct compressor. The 210 compressors are available with Rotolock, Tube O-Ring or Flange type Heads. The compressors also come in Left Hand and Right Hand configurations which identifies which side of the head the suction line connection is on.

If you have a York 210 compressor it should have a tag above the clutch that pretty much gives you all the information you need. (see the attachment below)

I am curious to know what type of refridgerant you are going to use. If it started with Freon R12, are you going to pay the $75.00/lb for the recycled stuff, convert to Freeze 12 or convert to R134a?

Tim
