Jaggu,

It might be different in large cities but some of the Mahindra dealers in small cities are next to useless in terms of sourcing spares.

There are a few compressor brackets in the parts database :

Mahindra_parts_database_2007novo

Just need confirmation as to which one I need. hopefully Behram can share his knowledge with us.

Looks like 507 Sandem compressor with the Unicla blower is the most popular choice. With a Radiator upgrade to keep heat down. + a bigger Rad fan.

Question - Anyone have pics + review of the 550 with the Balero dash. I heard is a pretty straight fitment. The dash that is, not the blower parts, am sure thats a pain.

Havent gone in detail, and i think it has parts for different engines. There were some 35 in the list out of which few i could relate to bracket for compressors are underlined.

Give it a try. Ill also try to check in detail once i get home.

Developing into a very informative thread, GTO's inputs are very helpful. awaiting Mr. Behram's inputs to complete the research.

Has anyone managed to find out any more information with regards to the bolero compressor bracket (part#) and which condenser fits well behind the grill ? I have got to start hassling my cousin soon with the part numbers otherwise it will delay things by months.

I did PM Mr Behram but no reply, maybe he is on holiday.

Thanks for the pictures GTO, I take it your condenser is from a Sierra as mentioned in other threads.

Yup, the condensor was picked up from an old N/A Sierra.

GTO, Can you confirm if this 4WD lever what you have shown on in the picture is original Mahindra Classic one.

Including mine, I have seen many Mahindra Classic and all of them are the same lever and stroke models of MM550. But your stroke for the 4WD operations is looking different.

@ Trammway : Nope, I lost my original 4x4 lever at the time of the lousy petrol install. The actual stroke is exactly as in the picture you posted.

Lightbulb voyager ac system

hi guys,
i have a 99 voyager with factory ac system.
here is the information i got
  • compressor - sd 508,138 cc (sanden japan)
  • evaporators -2 nos. with blowers. one in front & other under second seat
  • condenser -2 nos. one in front of radiator & other below left hand side floor with electric fan
i want to install the whole system from voyager to my 750 DP along with 5 door fiberglass hard top.
(750 has more volume than 440/540/550)(the bling 4x4 750 project will not start immediately, just gathering information on required subjects)

Guys,

One of my close friend who is also a Mahindra Classic (Stock) owner, installed A/C in his Jeep.

Please remember that his jeep is stock with Peugeot XDP 4.99 2112CC engine.

Now read the information and see the pics he sent me for installing A/C in my Explorer.

Details for putting up the AC into Classic.
  • New National Blower with Sanden Compressor (507)
  • Changed the inlet Manifold with XD3P Bolero Manifold it fits like Stock (reason being it has the casting to fit the Alternator on it)
  • Used the Y bracket (from Bolero) to hold the Alternator
  • Use the existing space used by the alternator for compressor
  • Idler pulley for holding the belt for the alternator (make sure you buy the pulley and use an imported bearing)
  • Used National blower Vs Super King as it is a space saver inside
  • Over all there are only 3 holes that are drilled till now coz I could not avoid them for putting up the AC. 2 for running the pipes to condenser, 1 for running pipes to blower
  • The relays are placed above the front grill inner side because of the above reason stated in point #7, any additional relays can be accommodated on the plate that is fixed there. All the original wiring harness has been kept intact so that it is not messed up.The relays are for my headlights (110 vs 55) and the auxiliary lights so the load is not on the switch.
Tip: A two way switch is used, the first stage is used to turn on the electronic fan that is before the condenser, the second stage is used for the AC. This helps to use the stock radiator while regular driving by turning on the first stage so there is enough airflow.

Hi siva,
Your friends classic is in immaculate condition. I was thinking of plonking an A/C but thinking of expense, complications and the upgrades that would required to be there , i dropped the idea.

is it possible to use R-124A refrigerant gas in sd 508 which uses R-12 refrigerant gas?

or is there any alternative to R-12 to be used in our existing ac setup of 550/voyager?
