Hey guys !

Just the thread I was looking for. Am off to get a Wagon-R electric fan for my Gypsy King carb. Been havaing a hard time with the temp gauge shooting up to the red while idling/crawling through Delhi's rush-hour traffic. Even without the a/c.

Now I can probably get a belt to connect up the compressor, get the condensor coil (under-belly) checked, replace solenoid switch and drive around in air-conditioned comfort.

Oh, wait. That will be after I put in a new clutch assembly, change suspension/tie-rod bushes check shockers.

Well, after the next pay-check for sure.

Great discussion. Khan-saheb, let us know what aircon you put in and what-went-where ?

Gypsy owners considering an air-con install would benefit from reading this thread (AC for MM550 (and Jeeps in general)) as well.

If I remember correctly, Gypsy used to come with factory fitted A/c at one time.

Can anyone confirm that. And if i did, can't we replicate the exact setup at per the Maruti Suzuki stock setup.

On a lighter note, has anyone considered installing a fan inside the cabin directed at the driver and/or passengers?! Cheaper and more vehicle friendly for sure.
Wasnt that long ago when it was considered a luxury!
Reading all the posts, for a MPFI Gypsy, what would be the single modification to make that will accomodate the additional load on the engine? Larger engine driven fan? The Wagon R electrical fan in place of the engine driven fan referred earlier? Larger radiator? Or a new fan/radiator combination?
Btw, I would go down that path only if a cabin fan proves to be totally useless.

To my knowledge its not only the additional load on the engine but also the condenser blocking the air flow(if it is installed in the front of the radiator, which is the case most often) to the radiator.

To combat the load on the engine a bigger 3 line copper radiator is required and to improve the air flow an additional fan right in the front should be installed.

I have one question. which will be the best suited radiator if I want to install a new radiator.

Can somebody suggest a radiator of a similliar Japanese car/suv. I think they are more reliable than the rest.

I hav3e also heard that Ford make one of the best radiators. Is it true. Is it possible to put any ford radiator in Gypsy. Ikon, Fiesta or Fusion?

Well i am not too sure if the wgn R radiator will help. But the 3 line copper radiators do help a lot.

Have posted pics/details of the AC and Copper radiator install on my Gypsy recently.http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...ter-gypsy.html

changing belt driven fan to electrical No, belt driven fan is retained. Electrical fan is added
changing the radiator (wagan R,118N, Contessa ambassador) Basically a bigger radiator with more core
changing the fan (wagan R,118NE,Contessa,ambassador) yes
installing compressor(sanden 507) yes
installing condenser coil(super king) yes
installing the blower (super king) yes
gas(R134a) yes
stock thermoclutch(??????) You meant thermo stat?
and related attachments.(??????) tubings and pipes

Maybe you want to do some heat sealing inside the cabin to make the ac more efficient also. Find out a good A.S.S or specialist AC guy and get it done, they will take care of the job.
