a/c compressor

i have an a/c/ compressor that i am about to remove. it just seized up and i am wondering if there is and way to ressurect it and turn it in to an on board air system? or if there is no point and i should return it for the whopping $10 core refund? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: a/c compressor

Depends on what your pulling it off of, is it your 90 bronco, then turn it in cuz an FS-6 or nippondenso 6 piston compressor used in later fords wont work. If your pulling it off an earlier ford with a Tecumseh (aluminum) or a preferably a "York" (cast iron) twin piston type, then they will work...

Re: a/c compressor

If it's seized, it probably doesn't matter what it is - it's trash. But you might be able to talk a parts store into swapping for a better core if it's a Tec or York.

Re: a/c compressor

If you have a 90, its either an FS-6 or FS-10 most likely.
It will be cast aluminum rounded shape going straight back from the pulley/clutch with aluminum blocks on top where the lines attach.

The tecs and yorks have a square crankcase with an oil sump (ford quit using them in the early 80s), thats why they can be used as an OBA cuz they store their own oil and the FS series relies on compressor oil circulated thru the refrigerant system for lubrication....

Re: a/c compressor

yep thats what it looks like but my clutch is a tiny bit different. instead of 6 pointed star like thing coming off the center bolt i have a 3 pointed thing. otherwise all the casing looks identacal.

Re: a/c compressor

there were various different clutches used on them, depending on the year/model vehicle it came out of.

Re: a/c compressor

well it works io tested the pump by turning it and applying electric to see if the clutch works and it is great. i saw that the only people who make mounting plates is saberforce but i can open their website. if i had the plans for the braket i easily have the capabilities to produce one but i can get any specs or even the visual look at it. does ne one have accurate specs?
