I got a condensor from a company in California, but I can't remember the
name. It works on GM cars also. It only costs $150 new. Now that the
A/C works it seems to work all the time. The compressor gets so cold that
even when the A/C is off the compressor pulley freezes and the belt
squeals like there is a raptor (one of those flying dinosaur things) under
the hood. I had someone look at it and they thought the shims were off on
the clutch. Should I just change the entire clutch? I saw a special at
Blaufergnugen for $150.
