    The serpentine conversion from the '93 donor engine has alternator and A/C compressor positions swapped.
    Alternator should not present any problems...........just wires.
    A/C compressor is a different animal.
    Is there gonna be trouble getting hoses to connect the comp up as it is on the same side as the A/C dash unit in my 84 C10 ?
    I am not familiar as to how the A/C was plumbed in the 93 1500.......

    If you are going from a "V" belt to a serpentine you may need a reverse flow water pump, I did on my '74.
