Hi all,
I have a problem with the aircon pulley. The shaft itself seems alright but the pulley has loads of play = buggered bearing.

Is this part replaceable or do you need a complete new clutch assy?

Any good/helpful suppliers near Eltham Victoria?

Ellory's manual is useless on this, just stating replace whole compressor unit!

I had the same thing on my 75 Series cruiser. Not sure if its the exact same set up on the 80 but mine cost me $110 total to have an A/C bloke do it. Doesn't require total change out - just the bearing. This was 3 years ago so expect around $200 mark now.

ive done the bearing in mine twice now in a year, and its buggered again, but i went to a place in box hill, melbourne auto air i think they are called? i think its in lexton rd and the bearing was $16.50.

On the note of it screwing up time and time again, what have ppl done to stop mud getting into the bearing? apart from not driving in it. The bearing is meant to be a sealed bearing, but it still sucks the crap in cauz its warm when it hits the cold mud/water.

A smear of silastic around the edges of the thin metal cover that bolts on the front has so far stopped mud getting into mine. Just a shame I didnt sort the other pulleys- a short time after replacing the air con one the alternator one is screaming. The bearing thru coventrys came to less than $20 for 2.

Hi. The bearing for the A/C clutch should be a sealed type and are not very expensive. and can be fitted quite easily. the most difficult part of the job is getting the clutch off, some are easy some require a small puller.
