True, but it seems easier for me just to make the hoses longer, and to order. I just need to know what engine configuration I am dealing with before making the hoses.....Rich

Rich,
I'm very interested in this AC upgrade! What are the vent temps you are getting? The link to temp readings above didn't work.
Thanks,
Mark

I rebuilt my AC a few years ago with a new R4 and R12, and now I'm almost wanting it to fail so that I can get this kit and a sanden!! Granted I don't drive the car much, but this thing looks amazing for the price.

The $400 price is over, but the components are still reasonable. If you decide not to buy the complete kit, but just the bracket and/or the compressor, the prices are: Compressor- $160 + $20 S/H/I, Bracket kit- $180 + $20 S/H/I, Hose kit (2 new hoses)- $80 + $20 S/H/I. Extra hose for PF condenser- $20, Drier- $15 I can ship a compressor, drier, and bracket in one carton for a single $25 S/H/I (if ordered together).

Pelican Parts is the best place to buy packaging material

I ship out a lot of these kits, and I have found that Pelican Parts is the best place to buy packaging material.

The best part is that the send along lots of new Mercedes Benz parts that I can use, and for FREE!!

I need to buy a compressor for this kit. I am not clear on which sanden to buy. You reference a U4426 but say it has the wrong head (?) and you will swap it out. My fabricator on my 39 STudebaker is waiting for this kit so I need to get a compressor fast. Is this what I ask for?

The compressor I used (U4426) was a 7 cyl one that I got or $10 at a swap meet. Yes it had the wrong head on it, but for $10 I was happy to change it. You can get/use any 5 or 7 cylinder Sanden style compressor. The compressor series I use are: SD5H14, or SD7H15. The specific model number denotes the head, pulley size, and other differences. The kit I sell works best with a rear port head, but the standard vertical ports will work (much less room to tighten fittings). If you are using an MB Diesel in a chassis other than an MB, you may not need a rear port head. If you are using one of my hose kits, you definitely need a rear port head. However, I can make hoses for custom applications as well....Rich
