REVIVING this thread to see if anyone that has posted in it has actually done this....

I am looking at a 1985 Defender with a 200TDi. The Defender (original 2.5 diesel) came with factory air...now the condenser and compressor etc were no longer in the 2.5 - so with the flip to a 200TDi I want to be able to use the factory dash, parts etc and am wondering what else will need to be done.

What are thoughts on what others have done? Given the fact I won't need A/C soon, until May next year it is not something I NEED right now, but something I WANT for the truck as the front vents are also the non-opening variety.

So - anyone with an A/C setup that can help? I am trying to figure out a "budget" to get it done.

Is the bracket for the compressor still there? I'm pretty sure the 2.5 and 200tdi use the same part.

No I don't think it is - I have not purchased said vehicle yet...I am trying to figure out $$$$ before buying it.

I haven't seen it done but I was looking at a stand alone solution mounted between the front seats

something like this:
http://www.partdeal.com/red-dot-22-3...FQMMaQodAqEAlg

you would still need the compressor and plumbing, not going to be free but I imagine you could rig up a setup like this sub $1000. Not going to look factory but there is a chance you don't care. Some of the standalone units can be plumed with heat as well making it a reasonable heating and AC solution.

The kits for air cost like $2100 for the underdash factory appearance and include all the hardware. These might be cost effective given that compressors and plumbing are an unknown quantity for me

I just bought an A/C system from a 93 NAS110 minus the compressor and compressor mount. I'm interested in what you come up with.

Will get some pictures and post up in a day or so.

the 2.5 system and the 200 would be the exact same parts. Try finding them in parts books. While many are nla you may get lucky.

AC

Installed the elite AC kit in my 200TDI. Dave at ULC had compressor bracket as part of the kit. Needed some retrofitting but all good. Welcome to check it out when we finally meet face to face!

I can only say that there's nothing magic about it. Even if you don't have an "official" bracket for the Sanden pump, you can put one together in about a half a minute with a little bit of angle stock and some metal glue. Otherwise there are literally gazillions of cheap off the shelf components such as evaporators condensers and receiver-dryers readily available. The concept is simple, the execution merely plumbing and charging is done with a rental vacuum pump and gas canisters from Auto zone.
Electrical consists of a switch to turn on the circuit to the pump clutch and blower fans, and a thermostatic control for the clutch. Dead easy.
There are places on the web that will put the hoses together for you if you give them specs for the lengths and ends needed.

Not to bring the dead alive but I'd rather keep the same topic filed under an existing one.

Is that for a 300 TDI or 200 TDI?

Did you make the bracket for 200 TDI?

COJ142, do you have any picture of the AC kit installed?

Thanks!
