1982 CHEVROLET LUV

Gerald K4NHN on Sun May 25, 2008 7:25 PM User is offlineView users profile

Year: 1982
Make: CHEVROLET
Model: Luv
Engine Size: 2.2
Refrigerant Type: R-12

My son has picked up this 82 CHEVROLET LUV diesel and he said that he found that the compressor clutch wire was disconnected. he connected the wire back up and tried the AC. He said that it started to squeal and the belt tried to jump off the pulley.. I feel sure that the compressor is seize up. I tried to look up on Arizona Mobile Air Inc. page what I was going to need and didn't see it listed. I feel that I'll at least need the compressor, the drier and o-rings and maybe some oil. I'm not sure which mineral oil
I have here. Also how much R-12 and oil will I need to put back in. I'll have it tomorrow, so I may be able to get the compressor number off of it.

Might help if you can post some images. Checked a couple my sources and no one is listing anything for this.

Thanks Tim, I'll have more information tomorrow. I saw somewhere that it was a R4, but I think that's round compressor and I think that this truck has a square mount compressor..

The LUV was a re-badged Isuzu, and 1982 was about the last of them under the GM banner. It became the Isuzu PUP after that.

The 2.2L Diesel was the Isuzu C223. I recall the Diesel using a 2 groove pulley DKS13G type compressor, if the A/C was OEM. Could be most anything if dealer installed.

Hi guys again
I checked and the compressure is frozen solid and I can't get it to turn. The systen does still have some pressure so that's good. I have a list of pictures that I'm sending to help ID everything. There wasn't any P/N's on the compressor other than the casting numbers. I can see where a small label was once on it, but it's gone now. The DKS13 G looks like may be the P/N. I have some of the GM numbers that I have from a parts and picture book. What's left of the drier P/N doesn't quite match the number in the book.

First off the compressor has four ears and the hose connection is in the reat of the compressor. The inside measurement of the ears is 2 9/16"... the out side of the ears is 3 13/16". These is as close as I cad measure. The drier is 8" tall total overall. The max at the top is 1 9/16" so the body will be a little smaller. The pictures I think will show most everthing. If either of you need more pictures I'll try and supply them. I want to stay with the R-12 and I have a few bottles of minial oil but I'm not sure it 500 or 525. I've had it for a good while, but they've never been opened. So I guess they should still be good. I don't know the amount of oil or the amount of freon to go back with after I flush out the lines and condenser. I can feel my way with the freon, but I don't have any idea of the oil.. Do I ned to put one of the screeded filters where the lines go to the back of the compressor. Also I'll need the o-rings and seals.
















So Tim can you help with what I need it get my son in a cooled truck.

Looks like a Diesel Kiki with rear ports. I'll have to do some checking on Tuesday. I think we & Valeo may be able to come up with a solution. Most likely the drier is an o-ring setup which should not be any issue.

Tim
Were you able to turn up anything.

Nothing in a new compressor. Still have one vendor to try but it's not looking good at this point.

Yep, only thing I can get is a reman on this compressor. Drier is also available. Feel free to email me if you would like a quote.

I'm still doing some leg work on the internet trying to ID this compressor and have come up with DKS-YA as the compressor. It said that it had off eight offset ears. Could this be the unit I'm looking for..

Struggling here. Are there any rebuilders that can rebuild what I have.. Next three days are 100 ++ and it looks like a long hot summer coming. It there an after market mounting bracket so that I might change over to a compressor that I can get. And get some new hoses made up... I'm just trying to look at all avenues.

If it turns our remanufacture usually can take care of things.

Tim, It won't turn. Only the clutch turns. I've taken the belts off and it won't move..

That clocking offset on the rear ears makes it a pain. An SD508 could be fitted if the ears were in-line...

Remaking hoses to fit a different compressor would not be too bad, if you could find a compressor that would bolt up. The diesel beats the heck out of accesory mounts, and the OEM mount is plenty strong in those pictures. I am guessing there are 4 bolts in the compressor.

I haven't tried to see if there are bolts in both of the bottom ears. I think that there is one on the bottom rear but can check on the bottom front ear to see it there is. Are you thinking of maybe taking the the top rear ear off the mount and using the SD508 with the bolts in the bottom and top right.. I had seen the SD508 on the internet durning my searching, and had thought about how that one would mount ... I don't have the spaceing on the ears of the SD508 to measure. I wonder it a three point mounting is all that's required to hold up..

SD508 is the same as the Seltec 10055021 listed on our site. I would think this could be adapted pretty easily if you are willing to have hoses made. If you go with the Seltec you won't have shaft seal leaks like you will with the Sanden.

Have you checked to make sure you can get all the other vehicle unique parts for the system such as the evaporator incase you have a leak in one of them? I'd hate to see you do all this work to get a different compressor mounted on the truck, only to find you've got a leak in the evaporator which is unavailable at any price.

Gerald K4NHN on Sat June 07, 2008 3:16 PM User is offlineView users profile

I haven't checked the evaporator by pulling a vacuum on the system and hadn't recovered what's in there.
I was going on the assumpion that it's good. I haven't recovered the freon so I don't know how much is in the system. But I have checked and it still had pressure on it. The truck had been setting up for several months and I would have thought that had there been a leak that the pressure would have been gone. The compressor had been unplued amd looked like it had been for quite a while too.
