Replacing A6 Seal

69-er on Wed September 01, 2010 1:34 PM User is offlineView users profile

Year: 1968
Make: Pontiac
Model: Firebird
Engine Size: 400
Refrigerant Type: R12

I have a leaky shaft seal on an old A6 compressor. I think it might the original from 1968. I don't see a seal kit on the ACKits web site. Is there a replacement seal available? If so, would I be able to use the latest, which I think is called a double-lip seal? I guess the ceramic seals were used back then.

I still don't know the condition of the rest of the internals, so a seal R&R might be a moot point. That's a another topic!

What are my options?

That;s the seal I use....be sure to also pull out both the cermaic seal and the carbon seal--(bird cage assembly)then replace with the double lip seal.

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......
