88 CRX-HF A/C issues

Postby different/nameagain » Sun Jul 19, 2020 1:10 pm

Ok guys, thought this was going to be simple-maybe it is. Need an AC guy.
Ordered a Sanden TR-70 turbo-rotary compressor from Rock Auto. Model #9782. For 88 CRX
Here I was told this was the right compressor due to the low HP of the HF model and maybe a few other issues-cannot remember those if any.
This compressor shows use for R12 on compressor tag, but system is being converted to 134A.
Is this going to be an issue.....I am replacing condenser-drier-compressor.
Condenser arrived damaged and replacement on the way------do I need to return this compressor too-different model/brand for 134A. Car is stripped and ready for air....Please help an old guy out.
Thanks much.

Replace all the orings in the system, and clean your evaporator as well.. ideally throw in a new one.. maybe even a new condensor. The system is just old...

Receiver/dryer cannister is very important to replace, has a desiccant inside that's supposed to be replaced whenever you open it up to the atmosphere. Probably soaking wet and dirty after all these years anyway. Make sure that you use the R134A compatible PAG lubricant for the compressor. Hopefully your new compressor isn't prefilled with mineral oil otherwise pour PAG into it, spin it around, then flush. Repeat a few times.
