1966 Thunderbird

Rotary Compressor Upgrade Kit

(w/o Filter-Drier)

 

WHAT IS A COMPRESSOR CONVERSION/UPGRADE KIT?

 

A kit designed to replace the stock York, Smooth York or Finned York compressor assembly with a rotary compressor.

 

WHY UPGRADE?

  • Save Horsepower. Rotary compressors draw less than half the horsepower of stock A6 compressor.

     
  • Stop Annoying Shaft Seal Leaks. The original York & Tecumseh compressors have a strong tendency to leak at the shaft seal if the air-conditioning is not used on a regular basis; sometimes in as little as two weeks of non-use! This will not be a problem with the Sanden-style rotary compressor.

  • Increase Fuel Economy. Less horsepower draw means better gas-mileage.

  • Running engine at high RPM? Sanden-style rotary compressors can handle 6,000 continuous RPM!

  • A great start to converting to 134a. The hoses in the kit are compatible with both R12 & 134a, include 134a charge ports and the compressor comes pre-charged with oil that is compatible with 134a. All that's left is to change the liquid hose and either change your filter-drier or have the original rebuilt. We have the liquid hose available in our eBay store. We can also rebuild your filter-drier.

  • Less than rebuilding or replacing your original stock parts.

WHAT DO I GET WITH THIS KIT?

  • Sanden-style compressor & clutch assembly with 2-groove pulley.

  • Adapter Bracket (to attach to your original bracket. All of the car's original brackets, pulleys and idlers are re-used)

  • Pre-made Discharge Hose. No cutting or crimping required!

  • Pre-made Suction Hose. No cutting or crimping required!

  • O-Rings & Oil Tube

  • Hardware.

  • 1-Year Compressor Warranty.

CAN I INSTALL THESE PARTS MYSELF?

 

We've done the hard parts so you don't have to! The average hobbyist can install without difficulty. No other specialized tools or knowledge is required for installation of parts. Simply install and bring to your certified technician to charge!
