Thanks, good counsell about the seams, seals, and twisting. I got a rebuilt
at Advance Auto. Will be careful about the bolt torque.
It occured to me, I think I've got a Haynes, or Chilton manual.
The old wreck is coming up on 200k miles. I'm not going to do the filter,
orifice, etc. Just drop the pump in, add a can of PAG oil charge, some
refrigerant, and hope for the best.

seam. If you're planning on a salvage compressor take a REALLY close
look at the body seams, The center section is a press fit to the end
caps with O rings for seals. If you find any oil/green ooze/or dampness
around it, look at another one.
