Preferred Brand Of New AC Compressors

Engine Size: 305
Refrigerant Type: R-12

Well, I learned my lesson on buying a cheap reman R4 compressor from the local discount auto store. I have what I believe is the beginning stages of black death. I have a very thin film of black residue from the high side of the compressor, through the condenser, to the orifice tube, with a little bit of trash accumulating on the filter.

Is there a consensus here on the boards on the brand of new compressors that have proven to be reliable? I don't want to risk getting junk again.

The host of this forum works very hard to source, supply, and use only the best compressors they can find. It is a unit from AMA that I will recommend.

Contact the guys at ackits.com for a "NEW" R4 compressor, they have quality remans too, but I'd go with a new one if it were me...

I can't believe GM used that carp compressor for so many years, my '94 has one. I just put in a BRAND-NEW R4 into my '94 Suburban a few months ago.

Changing over to a Sanden or other might've been nice, but with cost of that, adapter mounts, and the new manifold/hoses required, I couldn't justify that for a '94 Suburban with 205K miles on it.
