All 110 engines required the harmonic balancer.  I'm sure you will be able to 
scare up the AC compressor pulley that is bolted to the harmonic balancer.  
Someone who has successfully done an AC FC conversion should be able to tell 
you about any clearance issues.  But stick with the harmonic balancer--with AC 
that engine is going to be working hard.
