Re: Knock off compressor

Brad, 4-seizen's can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear (pig's ears are just dog food).

DELCO/Harrison design and OEM application are the basic root cause of much of the vibration an...

Re: hardline and Swagloc fittings for auto a/c

F-150: Maybe you need a #8 hose at the compressor discharge instead of a #6 (you said) Detroit: welcome back to Tim's band of Brothers. You are long time gone but certainly not forgotten. I also spent too many years in 130 degree (military) hot labs and cactus lands and DV (& jim Baker grade) !s...

Re: condinser too hot

20 psi suction proves that discharge valve and scroll tangential gas bypass are ok. Scroll mounted thermal protection switch (TPS) may disengage clutch at low suction/high discharge or air in system Excessive oil just raises louver temp with scroll application Normal scroll wear turns oil gray but d...
