Help with GTV6 A/C Mods
Here's what I've accumulated for my GTV6 Modifications.
The bottom picture is the compressor off Dee Schweikles old Milano. We cut the car up and cut the hoses out of the firewall without opening the system up.
This was my source for a Sanden compressor for my modifications. This system is still under pressure, the compressor rotates good, and I got the correct brackets to mount the Sanden on the GTV6 oil pan.
The top picture is the Sanden out of my Spider. It was out when I bought the car so don't blame me for exhausting the gas to the atmosphere. It seems to be good, rotates freely. I like it better than the Milano's because it has smaller hose connections and the schrader valves are on top. If there's some way to use it, I will.
I can't tell anything about the Compressors other than one has 507 22 in the casting on the side. Little boy, big boy, I don't know. Maybe you guys can help me sort that out. Is there a way to put the rear hose connections off the Spider compressor on the Milano compressor so I'd have the better hose connections. The Milanos are really bulky but they do have the schrader valves in them.
I guess i'll have to change to a one shieve pully too. (?) See, I have the correct bracket and casted bracket for the oil sump mounting. I'll need to buy barrier hose, fittings. I'll switch to the parellel flow condenser because they are cheap and supposedly more efficient. I'm thinking of taking the evaporator out of the heater box and make it a new box from aluminum sheet. I guess the Schrader connections on the compressor will need to be changed to R-134a type.
