Cliff (TIBCO) the PM notifications are down. Please check your PM's regarding Sanden SD5H compressor data. You mentioned an issue with the HD version in Corvairs years ago and I think I've confirmed it. See PM

You may want to change the name of this thread, or start a new one as I believe this information is important for anyone who has installed a compressor from Clark's. Maybe they are no longer selling the HD unit, but they sure did sell a lot of them in the beginning.

Cliff - I don't like to share information until I can confirm it. Anybody who has looked at the different Sanden manuals knows they have contradictory information.

As time permits I'll be working on the both the SD5H14HD Clark's once sold and the SD7H15 that Clark's now sells. Note Sanden refers to SD7H15 as a "HD" on their order page, but not in some manuals. Hopefully Sanden tech support can help.

10-4 on that! I have an old Sanden in my Mazda B2000 and after an exhaustive online search for information I ended up taking it in person to the counter of a local A/C shop. They got everything squared away and sent me home with the proper repair parts. They said not to trust the online info but I already knew that by the time I found them.

I thought the HD meant it had a dust seal to protect the clutch and front seal in dirty environments.

Joel - depends on which Sanden manual you look at. In some HD includes a bearing cover AND a huge dust cover over the pulley/clutch unit. In other manuals it's only a bearing seal.

The more I look through the Sanden manuals the more questions I have. I did email Sanden's tech folks and after a week NO response. Hmmmmmm.
