AC Evaporator
« on: June 20 2022, 01:37:04 PM »
Looks like I need an AC evaporator for 1986 GN. Any ideas on where to get one local in Canada or otherwise ? So far no luck in my searches. Tried kirban and Highway Stars

It's been several years since I have seen one that works in our cars.  This was a good number for it the last I checked, but it has been NA for some time.  GM# 3056081---after market 6516

I have not checked G body parts

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

I had to bite the bullet and purchase from original air. It arrived today and looks really nice.

I'm glad it turned out well for you and I am glad you posted the link.  Price may be high, but, if you don't have AC in our cars, you just discovered you have a race car.  Neither of mine have been driven hardly at all over the past few years after the compressor locked up on one of them and the other one started leaking oil out of the compressor front seal.  One of them could use a condenser as well...okay, at this point in time, both need condensers.  R134 sure puts a lot of heat out and makes the car want to run hotter they should when idling.

I am getting old fast.  This is probably the year to suck it up and put some money back into the Buicks.
