ANy Experience w/ Four Seasons Compressor
#1
Hi All,

I am looking at replacing my old stock A/C compressor w/ Four Seasons compressor w/ Clutch

http://www.amazon.com/Four-Seasons-58022...B004AF76PS

I could not find reviews on Four Seasons products.

Has anybody used this or any other compressor from them. Any feedback

Thanks
Rush

Four Seasons used to have a good reputation...not so good anymore.

No reason to ever get a reman'd unit anymore...brand new compressors are not much more than most reman'd units these days.

Kit,

I thought it was new. Even Summit Racing has this one (they maybe selling it on amazon)
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fss-58022
It does not say re-manufactured (other compressors on Summit Racing do)
But if Four Seasons is not good...then it does not matter.

the other option was
http://www.dallasmustang.com/air-conditi...7AodP0cAfA
But it does not have the clutch.

Don't rely solely on my statements: Four Seasons may now sell brand new and excellent compressors. They have been around for a long time and it makes sense they would also sell new units since evereyone else does too.
My main opinion is that I would not buy any reman'd unit, as the price difference between that and a new one is minimal most times.
The advent of ISO-XXXX manufacturing capability world-wide has brought the state of manufacturing almost anything to an exceptionally higher standard than just a few years ago, with a dramatic decrease in cost.

But, you know what? Somehow, it not all better to me. Stuff just doesn't have the same human-installed "soul" it did in years past.
Somehow the flaws and uniqueness of hand or near-hand assembly added a value beyond its mere function.
Can't explain it, its just how I feel about most things.

1973stang,

As you stated, I also could not find much. I would recommend Classic Auto Air. They specialize in the classic mustangs A/C and provide conversions also.
