Does anyone know of a site that has tips on dis and reassembly after a gasket job.I have looked all over the internet and can't even find an exploded view much less instruction.Mine has a belly leak and I can't afford to buy one so I am going to attempt to re gasket mine.I believe it is a V-5..Any tips would be greatly appreciated.I am pretty mechanically inclined.Thanks
We have many compressor explosions listed right here on this site. As for a step by step procedure, good luck finding that.

Might want to put out a Thread call to GMTech and Chick on this site and ask for their knowledge on the subject. I know they have rebuilt and resealed these compressors...
I wish I had thought about a reseal on mine. I just did a compressor replacement becuase of a belly and shaft seal leak.
Just resealed a V-5 tonight......Take off clutch, pulley, coil - remove all 6 through bolts- gently pull front head and rear head off of cylinder assembly- polish all sealing surfaces- oil and replace all o-rings- re-install- and replace shaft seal- takes ne about 30 minutes- could do them in my sleep.
Did a HT-6 reseal this morning- a little more complicated in that there are 3 o-rings to clean sealing surfaces- and you don't want to put it back together rotated wrong......
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
