AC compressor bracket on 200 tdi

Just replacing a 2.25 petrol with a 200 tdi in a 110 Wagon. The 2.25 has factory fitted AC. To mount the bracket on the 200 tdi four holes need to be drilled and tapped, does anyone have a depth to drill to avoid going right through the timing cover ?

Just did this on a 200tdi. The front two holes are outside the timing case, so no problem there. I've got an extra timing case sitting in my garage so I can measure the thickness tonight and let you know. I only had a tapered tap on hand, so I had to go all the way through so as to get enough thread for a bolt.

Total depth of rear studs through which you drill is 21mm.

You must drill right through the timing cover. It is not thick enough for blind tapped holes.

That was one of my concerns as I did not want to remove the timing cover on the engine as it has just been re-built. It was suggested to use coarse thread studs.

I didn't remove it. Just go really slowly as you tap so as you drill and then later tap so as not to damage the timing belt. Also blow out the aluminum shavings as you go so as to limit how much falls into the timing case.

Anybody have any pictures of the holes drilled in the timing housing and cover? I gather from reading the thread the holes are drilled in the cast in blocks in the upper left of the housing/cover.

Stole a York off of my 73 Minnie Winnie and plan on doing the whole OBA thing. Currently rebuilding the 200 TDi and rewiring the entire Defender. Want to make sure all the wires I will need for the clutch will be factored in too.
