diesel swap in petrol LHD with AC and PS

I have a 1985 LHD 110 Wagon with a 2.25 petrol engine factory fitted with air conditioning and power steering, has anyone done a 200 / 300 TDI engine swap with the extra pulleys.

The 300tdi has a power steering pump and kits are available to strap on an a/c - bracket for the compressor is on the engine already. I suspect you won't be able to use your current a/c however.

Why not? It should only be the compressor that needs to be swapped. If it were me, I would swap a 200Tdi and buy the brackets which may or may not be the same as a 2.5 Petrol (blocks are similar, but I confess I have never seen a 2.5 w/ factory AC. I assume it is like the NAS 110 system.

take a pic of the a/c compressor... I'm sure It can be mounted. There is a bracket that mounts a v-8 comp to a Tdi...

Bear in mind that the 300 (And very late 200's) have the ribbed serpentine belt, and thus different pullies, whereas the 2.25/2.5/200Tdi use the V belt (and the 200 has 2 belts, one for PAS and other for the engine & ancilliaries)

Where can I get a bracket that mounts a V-8 compressor to a Tdi engine?

Thanks
