AC Delco compressor for on board air - PLEASE Help

I know there are a bazillion articles on York type compressors out there but I don't have one. I already have in place an AC Delco compressor that was on the '98 Vortec V6 I swapped into my Jeep and have some wiring already to the fuse box for it.

Anybody have any insight on hbow to hook the thing up? The inlet and outlet fittings are unusual. I know this thing needs to be oiled and I can probably dig up those parts but I could use some advice especially if anyone has ever hooked one of these up or similar.

Do the fittings have a block of aluminum bolted to them with the hoses attached? If so, just remove the block and cut the tubing off. drill and tap the "holes" where the tubing was to the equivelent size to tap pipe threads in and use reducer bushing to get to the size line you want to run, for best results use a flex line off the unit to a hard line on the chassis.

The block of aluminum with the hoses is gone but the piece that they were bolted to looks good. The holes are smooth and look straight forward to tap. What about part numbers from say Grainger or Northern for a suitable oiler, separater, pop-off etc? Man I'm green on this one!!

I would get the "block" that GP'n talked about. It is very common and could probably be had from a salvage yard for cheap. You can also call or stop by an automotive air conditioning shop and see what they can do for you.



Let me know if you find any slick setup. I have the same compressor on the 350 thats going in my Jeep. Im a few months away from being able to mess with on board air though.

Keep in mind guys that these are "CRAP"[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] compressors!!!
Alum. cyl. walls,alum. pistons, and teflon rings with NO internal oiling system. These are 1/2 as good as most of the jap compressors. I hate that fact when we built the 2 best ones on the market BAR NONE. The gm A6(the real long ones that came on all the 70's cars) and the york. For that matter the chrysler V2 was a STOUT piece too.
Sorry but the new GM's are crappy in their own right for A/C alone but onboard air is a death wish for them.

Just waiting for the surgeon general to ban Jeeps for being too addictive
