Default Replacement Sanden AC Compressors for MK SD33T

Hi Guys,

Did a bit of a search and found a little bit of information, but wanted to confirm with some of the guru's about the AC Compressors in MK/MQ patrols.

My AC Compressor basically needs replacement. After multiple visits to a certain Brisbane mechanic, they've finally figured out the compressor has a leak and have told me it'll be $1500 to get a new compressor/get mine reconditioned. After picking myself back up off the floor I kindly told them no thanks.

Have since done a bit of research and have found that the AC compressor is a 'Sanden' unit, pretty widely available it appears. *I think* the model in my Patrol is an 'SD510' (I'll confirm this when I pick up my car from the mechanics later today).

There are a few different Sanden compressors on Ebay, one is this one pictured below, in Qld for $390. Fair amount cheaper than what I've been quoted. Anybody ordered a replacement off Ebay and have any comment about which model you bought etc? There are a lot of Chinese knock-offs on there too to be wary of I'd imagine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards,
Rich

Thanks bruteute! I've seen this model for sale on Ebay too. Would you also be able to post a picture of the back of the compressor? I want to compare the different compressor heads out there and also connections etc that are around. Once I figure this out it might be useful information to all.

Cheers,
Rich

The OE compressors are Hitachi units, SWP167 for the SD33/T and SWP123 for the L28, not sure which the P40 used.
They might be rebranded Sanden units, or there may be a Sanden equivalent but I can't say for sure, haven't looked into it.
$1500 seems expensive for a rebuild considering remanufactured can be bought for well under $4-500.

The diesel compressor is a fair bit larger than the L28 compressor, a few of the A/C lines are different, and they mount in different locations so you may come into a couple of issues bruteutes.

Hope this doesn't confuse you more, but this is the unit on my 33T shorty.
It either says SD6H14 or SD8H14

I think it's a 6 though.

Thanks for that info James. Do you have any pictures of the compressors on your shorty's?

Throws a bit of a spanner in the works, but now my thinking is maybe the Sanden 'SD5H14' and the 'SD7H15' are both direct replacements for the original unit, and a lot of these old buses would have had their compressors swapped out I'd imagine.. anyone know if there would be issues running the original compressor with r134a?

Thanks Nutsy - I *think* it'll be an 'SD5H14'. The compressor in my shorty looks similar to however the writing on the sticker has all come off and I can't make out the exact model.

no problems so far the compressor mount is from a L16 and has been butched to fit and work with that sanden compressor and all the lines are on new o rings. getting gassed next week. the high pressure line is abit longer it seems that's the only thing I can see so far

I meant to post these photos the other day but I completely forgot sorry.





The compressor will need to be rebuilt to use R134a, but I'll be using stuff called HR12 which is supposed to be compatible with R12 systems and give similar performance.

Does your reciever/drier have the sight glass on top and the inlet and outlet on the same side? And did you get it replaced when you had the A/C gassed up?

Thanks for that mate.
My reciever/drier has both inlet and outlet on the same side, I've been to a few parts stores and no one could find one to fit.

It had a Nissan part number on the side, so I might have to suck it up and order one from Japan.
