Subject: Re: a/c compressor question...

Leone... I also saw the same compressor for sale on E-bay. I just parted out a 900 and removed the whole system intact for use when mine went did, actualy the hose(s) did right at the compressor metal crimp. When I went to use the hoses from the extra system I found that there are 2 types of hoses, some have the filler fittings on the hose, others on the compressor, just my luck (NOT) the hoses did not match, the spare system has the fittings on the compressor. $120.00 later for the hose set plus a R-12 refill the system is working great. The guy might be in a position like me, of no use to him and just trying to make some money on it. Good Luck!
