HT6 = 7H15 ?????

masintenn on Sat February 27, 2010 1:19 PM User is offline

Year: 96
Make: Chevy
Model: Tahoe
Engine Size: 5.7
Refrigerant Type: R134A

I purchased what I thought was an HT6 compressor but after receiving it I noticed the sticker says 7H15. The body, of course, looks different than an Ht6 but it seems that it will bolt up, has the right connector and pulley. Will this work in place of an HT6?

This may be a 'replacement' compressor for the HT6. Yes, if the mountings, connectors, and clutch size are correct it will work.
One aspect of the Sanden compressor is to add lubricant to the 'plug' located on the case of the compressor. Failure to aid lube here may result in compressor failure or noise issues. Insure that the system is totally flushed and cleaned prior to installation of any new compressor installation. Replace the orifice tube and accumulator as part of this repair. A suggestion would be to have the system evacuated and serviced by a certified shop utilizing the correct equipment to insure proper recharge. The use of small cans and pressure readings is discouraged. This may result in an undercharged system which may result in premature compressor problems/failure.
Good luck with your repair.
