Engine Size: 5.7
Refrigerant Type: R-12
Well my A/C has not worked in a few yrs. And i live in texas.
When i put gages on it had a very little bit of pressure.
I pulled it into a vac. and it held at 29 over night today when i just checked it is showing about 15. It is about 100 deg's here today so the pressure should have remained the same or should it have dropped!
The nose of the comp. has a little bit of oily dirt stuck to it but no slinging around the hood area. Thinking maybe shaft seal.
I have 2 cans of R-134a i was going to pressurize the system and search for leaks with a sniffer.
Things i am going to replace. All parts from ACKITS can you guys there tell me if this is the right P/N's for my car or what else i should get.
1. 37-23327 Accum/Drier
2. 31-50001 White orifice tube
3. 21-34629 Shaft seal
4. 21-24657b GM O-ring kit
5. 41-50062-8 BVA Auto 100 Easter Glow 2 8 oz. bottles (is this enough i am not sure how much to put back in)
6. 21-24649 Gasket kit Nipp 10pa17a C K
7. Nylog hfc compatible
Then when all said and done service with R-12
Thanks for all the help here!
You can use accumulator 37-23200 also.
Which do you think is the better
Are the rest of the parts the right ones
There is not a better item of the two. One just has two service port locations. As far as I could tell by the data you provided and the data the vendors provide it looks correct.
I cant seem to get the "B" nuts on the lines to brake free.
Have shot them down with PB blaster oil and let soak over night.
Got any tricks.
All of the B nuts, or only one?
If there is room to do it safely, you can heat them up with a torch - hot enough to make the PB blaster smoke is usually enough. Or, you can back them up with a bucking bar, and peen the opposite wrench flat with a small hammer or rivet set. The elastic deformation out-of-round across the flats will sometimes be enough.
If the part you are replacing can be cut away from the part you are keeping, the nut can be split by cutting with a thin cutoff in a dremel tool or similar. Cut down very close to the threads, then spread the nut with a screwdriver.
The dealership approach is a BMF wrench. Apply torque as needed. If the evaporator pipe twists off, you get to bill an evaporator replacment. Stipid customer owns a corvette, he can pay for it. Just tell him his car is old.
Yes, I am cynical this AM.
