AC compressor for 1973
#1
Was cleaning up the AC compressor to go back on and discovered it is locked up. Must have stuck pistons. No time to tear down will just put back with no belt.
I would like to locate one to go back on in future. I have everything else ready to assemble. Going to switch to Dura Cool also.
So let me know if you have a compressor that is not locked up in decent shape not needing a rebuild.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

If you just want it to look correct, unplug the clutch and put the belt back on. Just a thought, Chuck

Is there anyway to know if it is locked up or needs rebuild when out of the car ?  I have one that you can have for shipping cost (I can ship sort of cheaply through UPS @ work.) Ships from Columbia MD. but I can't really tell you shipping cost until after it ships, because UPS keeps a running tab of what we ship, and only bills us monthly. 

It came on my engine, but I never had the system charged, so no idea if it is any good. I installed an after market unit.

You should be able to hook up to battery, ground to pump and hot to the wire and that should lock in the magnetic clutch. then try to turn the pulley. Or you can take the bolt in the center and turn it with a socket since it screws into the crank on the pump.
I am at 375 South Rugby Road, Hendersonville, N.C. 287891.
Thanks for the offer.

I connected a battery and the clutch engaged.  Once engaged, everything still turned easily by hand using the pullyand I could sort of feel it getting tight during rotation as if it was trying to build compression.

I can send it out on Monday, UPS ground ?  unless you are in a hurry ............
