I donít want the gap to exceed .060. So at this rate I do have around 80k to your 100k of life in them it seems. I opened up .006 inbetween 40k to 50k miles so far.

So I bought the NGK platinum BPR6EKPB-11 like OldNucbought and I also ordered the Denso K20TR11 non platinum from advanced auto.

I have both sets. One set goes in the Saturn. The other is going in my girlfriends Subaru Outback 2.5I

When I do the next oil change the plain BKR6EKB-11s are coming out and the BKR6EKPB-11s are going in with proper nickle based antiseize on the threads so they will come back out and leave the threads at some far in the future date.

Some of those com apart easy and some require the Saturn tool or you end up finishing off the compressor seal. The actual clutch coil is held in plase with a copoule of screws into the compressor.

I figure Iím going to just install the spare compressor. Itís probably easier than figuring out how to get the lower part of the clutch assembly removed to gain access to the clutch coil. Iíll start today after I wake up and tomorrow if it held its vacuum overnight Iíll charge it.

If you ever get your hands on the Saturn tool you can figure out how to build your own but they are sufficiently rare that is hard to do. The standard GM tool is identical except for the metric threads.

Default Re: 1996SL11.9L's 2002 SL1

The spare compressor from the 98 motor I had as a spare which I am sure is an 11G model has a smaller suction line than the one on my 2002 which Iím sure is an -11J I need to verify.

The problem is not a lot of places have the DCV-11J as a part option. Only an DCV-11S which I donít know if itís compatible with my AC Lines.

Any ideas? I know the DCV-11G is not compirable with what I have on my 2002 which Iím sure is a DCV-11J. Will the DCV-11S work?

That is a real good question as I have never seen a listing of the model number differences other than clutch coil configuration. If the 98 style suction line would mate up with the receiver dryer I would just change the line. They are usually available at the local parts store.

I think Iím going to go to Napa and get their -11S compressor. The suction line looks identical to the J model I have using the flat washer to seal it. Itís 300 dollars.

The 11S is a suitable replacement for the -11J. It also came pre loaded with 3oz of oil. Which is what I believe is maintained in it system wise.

Itís installed and under vacuum. Iíll check the vacuum in the morning to make sure there are no leaks. Then Iíll run the vacuum pump a few more hours while I sleep in the morning. I plan on getting up around 11-12. Which will be 3-4 more hours. I had the system open around 20 min.

To be more specific. The Napa reman TEM254478 compressor (DKV11S) is a suitable replacement for the DCV11J that was in my car.

If the ambient temperature is 85F or higher all moisture is pulled out almost instantaneously. If it is below that it may take hours or days. Holding steady vacuum with system isolated from the pump demonstrates leak tight conditions.

Along with schrader valve replacement the primary boundary caps should also be relaced unless they happen to be the very rare metal ones.

Then any water vapor or liquid is pulled out along with the air that must be removed to pull the vacuum. Water gores from a liquid to a gas in the mid 80s depending on the local barometric pressure, so removal is immediate as you do not have to wait for the slow process of evaporation.

I ran it the extra 4 hours to try and pull moisture out of the oil since Iíve read plenty of places that PAG oil absorbs moisture.

When I say held a vacuum I mean it was at 30Ē over night. I have a Yellow Jacket 6cfm vacuum pump and it will suck the **** out of a cars small system. I love it.
