Brandon & Eric,
I just completed a Sanden rotary compressor conversion on my UrQ. I
ordered my parts from ICE. They have a "kit" with all the parts you
need. I use the term kit loosely though. I had to use some creativity
and custom fitting to get it all in there. They have a York adapter
plate that you need to drill one hole in to mount on the UrQ mount. The
Sanden rotary compressor is very nice and light. I had to play around a
bit with fittings and hoses to get everything to work right. I was able
to re-use the hard line that snakes around the back of the engine bay.
They also provided me with a new dryer. Pretty much, replace all the
hoses with new R134 compatible hose and the new green O-rings. My
system runs fine. Not ice cold, but much better than the leaky R12
system ever was. The whole thing ran me about $800. When I have some
time, I will go take some pics and get a list of all the specific
fittings I used. Can't remember off the top of my head now.
