View Full Version : stock 69 camaro a/c to lt1 compressor

Anyone have any experience with mating an lt1 compressor to the stock GM plumbing? I wanted to hook up the plumbing, charge in some R-132 and oil, and rock 'n' roll. The car's system has been opened for so long, that it appears very little mineral oil remains in it, reducing any oil compatibility problems. Any suppliers that fab up lines that allow connection between these new and old style components? I haven't found anyone locally that knows anything about it or seems interested in finding a solution. Thanks.

the probelm you may run into is the condition of the rest of the system, recently did a system on a 65 impala, little older but the system had always been closed, still spent over $1000 on it replacing all the little crap that goes wrong and losing the freon each time a component failed. if it had not been an original car i would have yanked it.
cant help you on the fittings
