AC compressor leak
« on: April 30 2013, 10:14:47 PM »
So my AC compressor is leaking lots of oil... Will the clutch pulley eventually seize even if I don't engage the clutch?

It might get tired and seize from old age, but not due to the oil leak

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

not on topic, but here is a great price on a replacement condensor.  I bought the second one in black finish ($100), and its a perfect fit and very nice quality.
the third one is a "performance" condensor.  I'm assuming it would be a good for a 134 conversion?
