I do have the original style compressor but from the research here no one has been able to find replacement parts for that. Also, the byplass valve (I believe that's what it is called) is more than difficult to source.


I'm not aware of compressor parts sources either but I did speak with a vintage A/C speciality shop which seemed to think they could not only rebuild the system but to do so to use R134a. Even rebuilding the compressor did not seem a problem and I would much prefer to keep it original (at least in appearance) than put in a modern compressor.
