Re: [DML] AC Compressor blows a back plate?


Keep in mind that I am the only one of the two of us who is an unbiased source.  
I didn't push anything.  I told Paul what his two options were (yours 
included).  You'll never hear me criticize a new compressor, but Sanden is a 
biased source also (considering they've already made their money off the 
leftover pile of DMC's original compressors).

My 30-year-old compressor is still working just fine, and it has been in a lot 
worse environment than a warehouse (namely, my engine bay).  I don't appreciate 
the criticism considering I am one of the handful of people on this list that 
can tell you first-hand what still works on a DeLorean after 100,000 miles.

Paul made the decision that was right for him, and that's all I care about.  I 
didn't write that response to make money (though I'd be happy to take any that 
people send me for no reason).

I know your trying to help put pushing or recommending a 30 year old R12
compressors that is sold by others is not good for the consumer. People that
don't know about compressors as to what happens on the inside of them after
30 years of sitting in hot and cold warehouses when all the nitrogen gas
that they were packed with has leaked out and they say are no longer
recommended for resale. 
Sanden told me after about 5 years they don't recommend selling any
compressor. People that buy them off Ebay and other places trying to save a
buck and not knowing about compressors are prone to fail quicker.
Call the technical department at Sanden and they will explain further. Oh,
brand new compressors that Sanden has are identical in every way. They come
with a universal back head that has to be changed because the De Lorean
back head is obsolete. They being Sanden haven't sold R12 compressors for
about 10 years now.
