Last year i had my AC cycle switch go bad on my 88 monte ss and replaced with a part from the local parts store. All seemed fine until this year the system lost its charge. I suspect the cycle switch did not fit properly and that's how all the R12 slowly leaked out over the summer. Anyways does anybody have any suggestions on where to get a good fitting AC cycling switch? I would prefer to get my hands on something orginal or AC delco replacement part.

Thanks


88ss stock(for now)

I've always had good luck with NAPA parts, there is probably one in your community!!

Like so many other parts will deal with today the choices have dwindled, especially for old stuff. What I've found is Standard Motors Products owns most all the "names" in a large segment of the parts venders and is the supplier of many others. They own besides the old Blue Streak and of course Standard products but also Echlin, Wells, Four Seasons and this lengthy list they make the parts for, Wiki quote: "BWD/NIEHOFF, Intermotor, OEM, LockSmart, TechSmart, and GP Sorensen for engine management and Four Seasons, Factory Air, EVERCO, ACi, Imperial, COMPRESSORWORKS, TORQFLO, and Hayden for temperature control."

And from what I've seen also a lot of the old Delco sensors, switches, senders are reboxed Standard now.
So find a A/C cycling switch is just luck of the draw anymore, roll the dice with any manufacturer and hope it lasts.

Also don't forget most parts are "offshore" these days.

NAPA does have several levels of parts quality, I usually purchase the best I can afford, good luck!!
