I have a 94 s10 blazer that has/had r12.last summer the freon started
to leak out of the compressor on the top where it bolts together. I
unplugged it immediately and recently started to think about doin the
conversion. I figured i have to get a new compressor but was searching
on advance auto parts web site and they show a Ready Aire 2926 seal
kit for like 15 bucks. Is it possible to just unbolt the compressor
..seperate it and replace the seals and reuse it?
that's the link for the kit.

Disassembling the compressor:
Without the proper tools will at the very least;
Cause it to lock up when you reassemble it.

I would consider a new unit, because the longevity of a used unit isn't much
longer than a season.
I hope this helps?
Listening to Jabs, is like letting an unlicensed proctologist talk you into
a colonoscopy! You'll feel two hands on your shoulder, and feel a wet wiggly

You'll have to go to the dealer for a compressor seal kit, and you still
need special tools to disassemble the compressor!
you need special tools just to remove the driven plate of the clutch, and
reinstall it to set the proper air gap. Then you need a seal
remover/installer to remove the old seal and install the new one, without
This isn't to be an asshole, but I told you this the first time. Would you
rather listen to someone with thirty five years experience, who has rebuilt
GM compressors. Or Listen to a guy who's name is fashioned after some kind
of shit stabber?
trying to fix the compressor without a lathe and a surface grinder, after
dismantling it, with the correct tools. Will not work very well.
