Re: What would cause this new compressor failure

Looks like a clutch failure, the compressor may be ok. High head pressures can cause a clutch to fail, but there are usually other factors that contribute. Was this an aftermarket compressor? Clutches perform best when they have been burnished a bit, and are dry & clean. The fact that you had a ...

Re: Two Condensers connected in series

By 1998 those cars already had Parallel Flow condensers. Your OEM unit is 25" x 15" . Just make sure it has enough airflow. Your car was an OEM electric fan vehicle, so make sure all of the seals, dams etc. are still in place for best airflow from the OEM fans. The pusher fans can be good ...

Re: Two Condensers connected in series

Given the dribble of information on the vehicle, I can only assume it is a Gen 2 Firebird T/A. Those cars had large, one pass Tube & Fin condensers, which were not as efficient at transferring heat. A modern, dense fin parallel flow condenser has a big advantage. Consider that the entire condens...

Re: Two Condensers connected in series

Are there intercoolers in the cooling air path?

Is there room for the condensers you plan to use in the front of the car? Or are they going someplace else?

Re: Two Condensers connected in series

Actually, Chrysler used a series condenser in production. The 1996 Town & Country minivan added a second condenser in series when they put in rear A/C.

4" x 26" , and obviously intended for series cooling. P/N 4682591

Re: Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

Wow. Good thing Mopar used two belts so that compressor could not slip @ 7000 engine rpm...

Re: Side can tap

This one has both for sure

Re: Side can tap

Cusser: After years of fumbling & leaks with the old R12 pierce valves I bought a side tap. I had a can of R12 turn in to a rocket when the tap let go of the top rim as I was piercing it - that was the final straw. 1) No pierce & retract for flow - the pierce needle stays swaged in the hole ...
