Pharris, understood. I don't think in terms of originality with these cars, but was wondering if that was your motivation for a York.

Just for the sake of bullshatting, the York compressor gets its turd distinction primarily because it is heavy, vibrates a lot (compared to a rotary compressor, etc.) and requires a lot of energy to operate (I would have to look up the stats, but I know it uses more than double the horsepower of a rotary version). I think it performs OK in terms of compressing the refrigerant.

One guy you might check with about buying a York is Charlie Griffith. I know that he has replaced many of these over the years and might have some on hand. He is also very friendly and helpful.
