1989 Jeep Wagoneer, 360v8, 727, stock for now,
The compressor is a Sanden, with direct mounts and vertical fittings. The fittings are screw type with "O" rings. I don't see it currently listed on Sanden's web site, but it could be out of date. Mine is listed as type SD7H13 model SD7320. I think Sanden has standardized on the type SD7H15, a slightly larger displcemant. IF you look here for model 7822 at the bottom of the page, this one is as close as it gets. But it has the tab mounts. I've started looking at that model because it seems easier to get, most every one is going to the tab/ear mounts. Other brands of compressors are available as seltecSteve do you have any more info on that compressor, it is smaller and has different ports than the one I have off a mid 90's 6BT that has this annoying set of fitting on it that are Dodge specific. Those look like standard screw on fittings, any idea what it's off of or a part number? Cheers, Andre
I used a 94 Dodge CTD belt. The 94 and up is 81" and I added a custom bracked to space the alt out to get the right fit. There is a squeak when I turn the AC on but no noticable slip when running. Used it last year and didn't kill the battery.Steve was just taking a look at your pics again, I love that series of photos, such great work especially the hydraulic clutch master mod and the speed limit sign :beer:
Anyway, did you ever find a common part number and/or length for that belt you are using? Also looks like it is working well with that design, is the alternator (or anything else) slipping with that belt routing? Here I was thinking that I was all creative with my belt routing when you have had yours the same for years.. I will need a slightly shorter one than yours as I'm reusing the Chevy alternator but same basic principle..
Yes, I used the same compressor for both setups. I think that the direct mount is a "standard" because every manufacture wants you to put their product in the same spot as someone else product. The same should go for the ear/tab mounts.I just realized I was slightly confused because of the two repowers with slightly different belt setups. Anyway, here is the one with the Dodge factory setup.. Interesting as well.. I imagine the same compressor for both models? When I am ready to order I imagine that Sanden number will probably work fine. Thanks again.. A
If you use the side entrance for the lower hose a dodge will fit up to it. I used a 89-93 lower hose, because I know I can get them anywhere. After the Dodge hose it routed through home made coolent tubes, I used hard copper for that. The top is made up from two pieces, joined with a piece of hard copper.What kind of lower radiator hoses is everyone using? Does the Dodge fit?
The more I learn the more I realize I need to learn. You guys are way ahead of me! My problem is I'm not just repowering. I'm building the whole truck.
I spent the evening tonight working on the bed and painting the turbo, air to intake tube, and inside of the wheels.
