AC Compressor source needed

I need a Harrison V5 as fitted to GM vehicles.

Original model is Delphi / Diavia Compressor V5 Rotalock orizzontal 015124/124

Any ideas where I can source a genuine or replacement model?

Thanks in advance

Try ebay. there are several re-builders that have a lot of stock. Perhaps they have the one you need.

They also fitted these to VW cabriolets I'm the 90's. I guess someone was making retro fit kits.

If they are "new" Sanden compressors, I'd find out where they were built. Sanden has a new plant in China, and in my personal experience- are pure crapola. I bought one from an ebay seller for my '77 Porsche 930 because I am still running R12 in it- lower head pressures, less heat vs R134a. They shaft size was smaller in diameter than my original unit (for those of you who know 911s- they came from the factory with a York POS piston unit- I changed that out 20 years ago with the rotary...)that I still had on my workbench. I went with the "new" Sanden unit because it had the R12 fittings I needed w/o having to change hose ends to match later compressors, etc.... Well, after charging the system correctly, that clutch on the compressor lasted about 20 miles down the road- bearings grenaded and spewed burned grease all over everything.... The seller was good- returned my money and shipping....

There are reputable re-builders who advertise on ebay- they take your unit and re-build to OEM specs. Just a thought to consider......

I had mine rebuilt in Florida. It's not a sanden but likely could be substituted for one. I live in NYC and finding little AC shops with knowledgeable people is a bit tricky.

Jason-

I'd do a google search for a/c compressor rebuilders. Many sites have charts as to what compressor is inter-changable with what, etc, or just talk to one of the tech guys. My 930 compressor is down in Phoenix getting rebuilt by the guy who rebuilt it 20+ years ago..... there are many rebuilders- just make sure they can do yours. So many shops just want to throw a new one in there w/o trouble shooting IMHO- like the local body shop here that doesn't really do body work- they just replace whole panels... Let us know how it works out for you....

Tim
