  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Help: Delco Air A/C Compressor

Question

Does anybody know where I can find parts or a replacement for a Delco Air A/C compressor?

The one I have I believe has a bad bearing and the electromagnetic clamp doesn't seem to work. (could just be a wiring issue though)

Go to your local A/C repair shop and talk to them. Delco air conditioners have been around a long time and there are a whole bunch of remanufactuers out there. The shop should have the skill and expertise to:

1. Properly and safely evacuate your system of refrigerant (assuming there is any left)

2. Diagnose the problem and figure out what needs replacing

3. Order the proper parts (just don't expect it to be cheap - especially if you need a new pump and dryer assemblies)

4. Re-lubricate and re-charge the system

You might also want to take the time to convert the system from R-14 to R-124.

So talk to your local shop and see what they want to charge. A working AC system is a fine thing, especially this summer !!!! Also, if you think the cost of repair is too much, then consider this: a non-working AC system will decrease the value of the car if/when you go to seelit.

I just need to figure out what is wrong with it. My friends father said he would repair and recharge it for me. Hes worked on these cars all his life.

No doubt but it isn't rocket science either. You just need a good A/C expert. It isn't cheap either. Nothing is better than working A/C on a long drive.

Ya especially on older cars, the stuff is easier to get to. The hoses and whatnot are not all crammed together like they are in new cars.
