electronically controlled variable displacement

I am putting an ls engine and trans out of a '15 Silverado in my '63 Pontiac. I plan to use the compressor, condenser, evaporator and hoses off of the truck because the charge seems to be quite critical with a variable displacement compressor. Is there a compressor that will fit on that engine with ...

Re: strange cooling

Driving it the nozzle temp was still climbing appreciably as soon as you would slow down so I tried the .072 orifice and it seemed to work the same as the .057. I figured that as soon as I can find a wrecked Chev or GMC van I will be doing the LS engine and trans change and the weather is cooling of...

Re: strange cooling

OK, I have been since last Wednesday afternoon installing the V7 compressor, had to fabricate all new brackets. As has been the norm for this A/C install everything was a problem but it is in nonetheless. Wonder if there is anyone out there that could use a compressor/alternator bracket and a Sanden...

Re: strange cooling

I have a v7 compressor for a c5 corvette coming with a v belt clutch. Now I just have to build all new bracketts. I used to have a small structural steel shop so manipulating steel I understand.

Re: strange cooling

But what are they for? Back in the quarter midget days we used to do everything possible to squeeze a little more power out of a, I think it was a continental single cylinder. One of the questionable tricks was to support the camshaft lobe in a polished cradle and smack the top of the lobe with a bi...

Re: strange cooling

About the forum, there was an e mail that I glanced at that seemed to be alluding to the fact that this is an a/c forum and not a power train forum. I will have to dig through the e mails and look at it more carefully to see if I misread it. Not a major issue I just don't want to ruffle someones fea...

Re: strange cooling

The moderators seem to think that we have gotten off topic and rightly so. So to get back on topic the C-5 Corvette, 97-04, do they all have the V7 compressor? There seems to be some confusion in cyberspace about that. If the C-5 compressor is a V7 the mounting on it looks like it will work well wit...

Re: strange cooling

intake 268 / 208 @ .050. IO 22 BTDC closes 66 ABDC exhaust 270 / 214 @ .050 EO 67 BBDC closes 23 ATDC Cam is dialed in straight up The most logical trans change would be a 200R4, supposedly it will bolt in without an adapter. Problem is that by the time I get it in I will have spent 1/3 to 1/2 of wh...

Re: strange cooling

Finally getting back to the Pontiac, had a 3" cast iron waste line inside a kitchen wall split open. I had to tear the kitchen apart to get to it. It had about a three foot long longitudinal crack that separated about 3/8". I have never seen anything like it and none of my contractor frien...
