a/c belts on 225 engine

I am putting a stock a/c unit on my 225. I have no pictures in manual on how many belts and how they line up. Have also put p/s sag unit on. At present p/s unit is on drivers side and a/c and alternator is on passenger side. If you can drive belt from water pump pully I would use 3 belts. One from crank drives p/s. Second drives a/c and water pump. The third belt goes from the water pump to the alternator. Can this system work? Can any of you please advise what the set up should be. The p/s pump is off a v-6 or 8 buick.

Man this is some fun??????????????

The stock AC had a massive bracket that bolted to the front of the V6 engine. The AC compressor fits into an L shaped plate bracket above the alternator on the passenger side of the engine. If you have the bracket, it's obvious how the compressor belts line up. If you don't, there is no standard way of setting it up and you'll have to figure something out on your own.
