New A 6 compressor

Postby huntindog » Thu Jun 09, 2016 7:02 pm

I am looking to get a new GM A6 style compressor.

So far the only one I have found is a "Compressor Works" brand.

Any one ever hear them?

I read on this board that people have had trouble with that brand. I am currently using a rebuilt (Murry) from O'reilly's auto parts. It is in a commercial truck, so sees more use in one year than most cars do in 8. So far I have had good luck with it.
A lot of people don't like rebuilds, and I understand why, but with the A-6 being out of production for so long, it is really the only choice. The A-6 uses selective fit in the ball seat, so if the rebuilder is doing it right, it should be as good as new. If the rebuilder is slapping it together with any old parts, it will fail.
