Pics of AC system for 1983s?

Hello all,

My 'new' truck doesn't have an AC compressor or lines. It appears that I do have the rest of the components, though I'd like to see what the rest of you show when you open your hoods. I've read and looked in parts books that indicate 83 was a transition year having a couple different compressors used - true? My truck was built in Canada though I don't know if that makes a difference. Google Images has pics of engine compartments, but none I saw were showcasing the AC setups. If y'all could post a few pics I'd appreciate it.

Thank you.

Maybe that was the year they went from the A6 to the R4 compressor?
