1989 XJ6 3.6 liter
Factory came with Sanden SD510 compressor (5 piston 10 cubic inch) (latter XJ40s came with SD709 compressor)
Connections on back single bolt and metal bar holding in 2 original AC hoses
Low charge caused the compressor to overheat clutch burnt out and compressor shaft is frozen.
Too bad the old SD510 did not cut OFF on low charge and has no THERMAL cut off switch to turn off an overheating compressor.
Will likely replace with a new compressor seems dicey to go with an old salvage unit… new model is SD7H15 new Sanden compressor but not sure if the mounting ears will align…
I have the dimensions for the new Sanden compressor (see PDF below) but cant find any mounting ear dimensions for the old original SD4510 model and V belt magnetic clutch
page 13 gives SD7H15 ear dimensions…
1__WIll the SD7 mount onto the old brackets for the old SD510 model?
2__Anyone have the tech dimensions of the old SD510?
3__Will new compressor SD7H15 have a thermal cutoff switch?
4__New SD7H15 has plenty of OPTIONS for the END CAP anyone have any thoughts to which one to get?
I have access to a AC hose crimping tool and could make new hoses though I don’t have the tool hoses or fittings yet.
Thanks to all,
