I’m trying to put an A/C compressor in 82’ 4 door
Cutlass, and the one I bought doesn’t fix is there
any suggestions or what is the part number to it if
anyone has one in their Cutlass? Thanks in advance
Looks like all but the 4.3L diesel engine use 4 seasons part number 57231. Couldn't find a listing for the 4.3L diesel. The 3.8L V6 may require a metric bolt kit to mount. Which engine do you have? HTH. -Jim
I have the 5.0L V8 gasoline
You'll need to take the old one with you or a picture of it to the auto parts store for them to match up. There's a 9 o'clock mounting and a 12 o'clock mounting. HTH. -Jim
I just looked this up at work (NAPA). It appears that the difference is if you have the 305 or 307 V8. Both are listed as 5.0L. HTH. -Jim
I have a 307..But when I bought the car it didn’t have a compressor on it. Also I had the 57231 but the oil fill tube was in the way so I exchanged it and got the 57221 but I haven’t installed in yet
I see. That stinks that you don't have the old original one! I'm sure the difference is in the mounting and hose position between the 305 & 307. I didn't see the difference last night when I looked it up online but our cataloging at work shows the difference. Hopefully you have the correct one now! Keep us posted. -Jim
