can someone list all of the components to a/c system?

what parts should be bought new and not trusted off a junkyard car?
any advice on simple tests for good/bad parts?
thank you for your support.

the main thing to look for is the tensioner pulley seized up.
the long hexagonal bolt is different between hitachi and panasonic, the panasonic having a longer shank.
the bolt to the far left that holds the bracket to the block has a spacer, it only has to be loosened, not removed. but make sure you get the spacer if you're parting out
come back with more info on your setup. is the compressor round(panasonic) or square(hitachi).
if it's hitachi, is the compressor on the inside of the motor, or the outside(with alt. in the middle) this will help to determine which bolts or pulley you need
also, find out which water pump you have. remove the fan. the long water pump has the pulley slip over the studs. the short water pump has the pulley bolted to the pump

i have a 1980 hatch ea81 with no a/c and i want to put a/c in it. i can usually find a/c ea81 equipped cars at junkyards round here. i thought i had an unused pully on the front of my crank, but i just looked and i don't. i have an ea71 with a double pully on the end of the crank. i could prolly use that on the ea81 (i assume that empty pully is for the a/c). so anyway whadaya make of all this.
i would still like a list of every part i need to pull
i can't find a/c in the fsm. where is it?

whatever system you get, be sure to get everything that goes with it all at once
hitachis may be a better choice, because it doesnt have to bolt to the intake manifold, and thea81 manifold doesnt have the hole for the bolt

I say get an FSM if you are really serious about this, or talk to the dealer and see if they can get you a part list for the "dealer installed" AC kit for your model year.....
Maybe buy one of those window style AC units for your house, and cut a hole in the rear hatch window. Get a generator and......
Similar to Skip's fix for a bad heater core..... set the passenger seat on fire:headbang:
Or you could just open the windows.....
