WHAT ENGINES DO THE COMPRESSOR BRACKETS FIT?

  • This kit is designed for use with the newer 134a refrigerant. Please CLICK HERE for information on converting R12 systems to 134a

  • Any stock Pontiac V8 301, 326, 350, 389, 400, 455 engine with compressor mounted on passenger side (right-hand) of the engine.

  • PLEASE MAKE SURE THE ENGINE FITS WITHIN THE GUIDELINES LISTED ABOVE.
  • UNSURE? Please call or EMAIL with questions.

  • ENGINE BEEN MODIFIED? Please call or EMAIL with details before purchasing


    CAN I INSTALL THESE PARTS MYSELF?

  • The average hobbyist can install without difficulty. General rule of thumb is if you change your own parts, you can change these parts.

  • It is recommended, however, to have the system evacuated & charged by a professional. Hose Crimping instructions can be downloaded by CLICKING HERE.

  • Other than crimping one end of the hoses and charging the system, no other specialized tools or knowledge is required for installation of parts.

 

  • This kit is designed for use with the newer 134a refrigerant. It is important to make sure all components that are being reused (evaporator, condenser, liquid line/hoses, all valves) are either changed or flushed and clean of contamination before installation and charging of the system.
