[urq] European Car project 4000Q back issues anyone?

The 4KQ compressor is a different type and location than the urq.  It's
a full-size York (mounted on right side) whereas the urq has a mini-York
on the left.  Any adapter bracket will need to accommodate the mini-York
three-bolt mount pattern (the big one uses four).  Also, the location of
the urq compressor leaves very little room between the rear of the
compressor to the condenser, so the replacement compressor can't be too

I'd like to do this same conversion on my urq soon, so any BTDT advice
would be much appreciated.

I am getting ready to put an ICE ac conversion kit in my UrQ (the old
R12 "Tower of Power" system was ripped out years ago).  Someone had
mentioned that back in in 96? European Car magazine installed one of
these kits on their Project 4000Q.  Does anyone have a copy of this
article?  I would love some BTDT on this AC conversion project.  The kit
comes with a new rotary compressor, bracket and lines.  I am also
replcing the condenser, dryer and expansion valve.  The lack of ACin
Hawii is getting to me.  Thanks
