PAG 150....preference is for the Double End Capped...."DEC"...but 'standard' PAG will work as well. Be sure to add the lubricant to the case thru the bolt in the side. Failure to add lubricant to this location may result in some serious compressor damage.
Insure that the system is recharged properly...this compressor is prone to internal damage when operated with an insufficient recharge.
Good luck!!!!

Hi

Thanks. I thought it was 150, but saw 125 mentioned in an earlier thread.

125 is the GM spec, however, most lube suppliers spec the lube at 150. If not mistaken GM sells a 125 pag.....but the same company that produces this for GM specs in the aftermarket at 150.
Use the 150....but make sure it is lubed properly.....and charged completely.

Notice the 'blue' on the bearing race ...center of compressor. This bearing relies totally on the pressure differential of a properly recharged system to maintain lubricant flow.
Also notice how little lube has drained from the case. The lubricant was added to the compressor in the 'standard' method...into the suction port...however, this is an improper method and does not insure correct lubricant to the case itself.

Interesting, does CW state in their product information on how to fill this model of compressor?

Currently NO....however, new instructional information is being readied for insertion....but then.....we all know what instructions are for......heck....been doing this for 'XX years'....heck boy...I know what I'm doing.....don't need no f*&&%$g instructions.....just send me another compressor.......heck....save some fuel...send two in case this other one fails also....."
Seriously....it is in the new instruction sheet. A proposal....a tape strip around the case....'saying...PUT THE DARN STUFF HERE.

Where is my A6 data?

I hear you on the instructions! Get's frustrating at times when you explain a process and then it's not followed. Only to be then followed with why is it not working!
