There is a company in Tampa Florida that will rebuild your original compressor for approximately $300. They also will rebuild your original receiver drier, and recondition the expansion valve after testing it. I have had them do work for me on both my 1962 Corvair, 1962 Chevy Bel Air, and my 1969 Cadillac. Depending on the time of the year, they usually can turn it around in 4 - 6 weeks. Here is their website.

>Hi Bill, FYI, My A6 compressor was working good, but was leaking freon at the pulley seal. Couldn't find any body to replace it, so I bought the tool kit and did it myself. Learned a lot about the system. It's still working good. Also found out Car Quest auto parts can get rebuilt A6 compressors for less than $80. But then again you would want the original compressor left on. I replaced a Corvair compressor for a friend in Charleston a year ago.
