[Saloon-lovers] Air conditioning for my Mark 2

Hi List: We have decided that an air conditioner for our restoration project
is in order. It is just too hot in southern Oregon without it.
I am asking for help from you concerning aftermarket “modern” a/c systems
that any of you have installed. Can you please direct me to a source? I have
contacted Vintage Air, and did receive their excellent catalog, but nothing
listed for our cars. If no one has done this installation, I will proceed and
keep the list informed if any of you are interested.
Thanks again,
Dennis Barr

The only A/C kit I am aware of is one by Terry’s, however, it is - big
bucks. The expense may be justified, however, if you are starting from
scratch.

I have an inoperative Delinair unit and have started working on
re-installation. A Sanyo compressor replaced the old York unit. I made a
bracket for engine that holds the alternator/PAS pump and the Sanyo. It
was made from of 1/4 steel plate which I heated and bent to shape on a home
brew brake. The Sanyo unit as well and the hoses came from Vintage Air.

While Vintage Air has no kit for the Mk2, the components can fit in the
wheel wheels. You could probably retrofit a Delinair box (or other unit)
in the trunk and it would probably be more efficient.

Good luck

There were three condensers that were installed on the Mk2. One in front
of the radiator, a second under the oil pan (parallel to the ground) and a
third in the driver’s side wheel well, above the crow’s feet (foot). The
wheel well condenser had a fan and some screening and appeared to stay out
of crud’s way. I don’t know the rating of the units. My plan is to mount
new condensers in the wheel wells.

George,
Where in the wheel wells do you mount the condensor?. Did you fit mud
shields to keep the krud off of them?
How do they work under there? What was their their BTU rating? Do you
recall the manufacturer and model
number?

George,

I used two condensers from Three Series BMW’s (i.e. 320 etc, and cheap at
the junk yard) sandwiched together with a fan mounted on the front of the
unit, all install in my left front wheel well.

I’ve got an original trunk mounted evaporator (from a 420), a Sanden 507
compressor and using R134A. It was 100 degrees here in Oklahoma today, and I
was nice and cool.

Sincerely,

Mike Waldron

There was a fellow that I contacted many months ago that was working on an AC
kit for the Mk 2. I still have his E-mails in my mailbox at work. If anyone
is interested, contact me at my work address, msutter@maxwell.com and I’ll
contact him and share them if he gives his OK.
