Engine Size: 327
Refrigerant Type: R-12
I have removed the leaking shaft seal from my 67 corvette. The seal I removed incorporated a steel washer that contacted the graphite like cage assembly. I had previously purchased a seal assembly that has a white Teflon like material instead of the steel washer. Is the Teflon seal face a technological upgrade over the OEM steel seal?
What seal assembly should I install?
Thanks for your response-----Mark
Why not replace the older seal type with a new design double lipped seal from a H6/V5 type compressor. Will greatly aid in loss of refrigerant. It is hidden and will not affect points in a show...if the vehicle is shown.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
There is a large O-Ring behind the rear cover that I would replace while you have the compressor off.
You can buy the reaseal kit on-line for that large o-ring etc.
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......
I see a GM shaft seal part #21-34659 that is recommended for compressor models HD/HT/HT6/HR6/HR6HE/V5. Is this the seal I should be using in my A6?
I have already replaced the large oring.
