Very reasonable! How much does the unit weigh? Also anyone have any idea how much power it would drain when not in use?


I don't know it's weight, but it won't drain much power if not engaged. Besides if you remove the old clutch fan you'll save about 15-20 HP to offset it anyway. :)

Hi

The compressor weighs about 1.6kgs and the bracket and other stuff probably add another 1kg or so.
How much power does it drain when not in use, very very little as the compressor clutch disengages so the part moving is the pulley.

Oh wow! So reasonably priced, so little weight and little drag! Sounds like a winner to me! 

Also really unbeleiveable hiw much power can be taken from a clutch fan! 

Heaps of great info, thanks guys!

The only catch is that the rest of A/C system in your car needs to be good order.
If the system has been kept sealed good chance everything will be OK, the receiver/dryer will still to be replaced though.

Some great photos in that lot, really glad I made the trip down.

Bruce, how did videos you took on the drive up turn out ?

Cheers
