Description

R4 to Sanden “mini” 7176 (SD7B10) AC compressor conversion

Adapter bracket allows replacement of GM R4 AC compressor with Sanden SD7B10—7176 “mini” compressor. This kit allows you to reuse the OEM mounting bracket. The kit will replace any R4 that used a 6-groove serpentine-style pulley, SBC or BBC. Sanden compressor is compact enough to clear tall valve covers.

     What's included:

    Adapter brackets to bolt the Sanden compressor and to the R4 bracket.

    All necessary hardware is included.

    Adapter plates are painted black.

    What else is required to complete the installation:

    Sanden “mini” AC compressor (also known as SD7B10)

    View the SD7B10 (7176) AC compressor: (Kwik Performance PN 10266-01).

    This AC compressor also requires a manifold style fitting kit

    New AC hoses or new crimp-on fittings on existing hoses will be required to convert from the R4 manifold block to new O-ring style swivel fittings to match compressor fittings mentioned above.

    Six-rib belt. Belt length will vary depending on application. The Sanden pulley diameter is slightly larger than the R4 and the center line is shifted slightly. We recommend starting with a belt approximately 1” longer than what was used with the R4.

    Complete Gates belt chart available.
