WANTED....Sanden AC Compressor

I need a good Sanden AC Compressor (New or Used) to install in a '77 911S upgrade from the piece of #$%@ York model.

Looking to complete this ASAP....or at least while the snow is still on the ground.

Brian,

Go to a local junk yard and look for a sanden sd7 or sd8. A lot of the foreign cars had them. If you remove the valve and refrigerant comes out, then in all likelyhood the compressor is still good.

The yard should give you a warranty for it anyway. But, even if they don't, the purchase price is about$25.00 which is not bad for a ref. compressor.

Steve,

Will the Sanden bolt up to the old York mounting brackets?

Steve,
I've found a number of SD709 models available as new in box, however I'd still need to get the conversion pieces for the hoses connections and bracket to mount to my old York position.

The cost is very cheap......is the SD709 the right model to use here ?? I've also seen SD508 model out there for sale....what about that model ?

Thanks,
Brian

I am inserting two pics. One is the hose connections and the other is the bracket I made from 1" alunimum angel.

What you have to do is use the existing base plate from the old compressor to mount the new one, drill holes and bolt down the angel.

How I did this to get the belt straight was to bolt the compressor to the angel and set it on the base plate with the belt installed.
I then pulled outward a little to put tension on it and looked down the belt to the other pully to make sure it was straight.

Once I had it straight, I marked the holes, removed the base plate and drilled new holes for the brackets. It worked out great and it was cheap.

The compressor is a Sanden but it is a new 134a. If you find a SD7, or SD8, make sure it is a short body so it will fit. The body is the same size, it's just that the back has an extended end on it so it won't fit.

I can give you more detail if you are interested in where to get the adapters, but if you find a compressor at the junk yard, they will most likely have the adapters with them.

Steve,
Thanks......the bracket looks fairly strightforward to build !

I'll take if from your message that the SD7 & SD8 both will work, as long as we are dealing with the short body.
