Re: Which UK Volvo has the York A/C Compressors ???
Its to go into my Landrover to use as an onboard air compressor.
I currently have a Sanden one but this was designed to use the
refrigerant as lubricant. Consequently now I need to periodically
feed oil into the compressor - this isnt a real problem but for the
oil in the air etc etc.
Whilst the oil trap catches most of it...
A York compressor with integral oil sump and traditional piston design
would be better.
Cost is also a factor, hence on the lookout for one off a scrapper.
There is a place in the states (on eBay) that does them for about $200
- $300. Too expensive!
