"One other thought. The aluminum bracket that bolts to the manifold for the rear compressor mount has rubber bushings to absorb some vibration. What condition are the bushings on yours?"

"If the belt and pulleys for the crank, water pump and compressor are properly aligned and the belt is tight, it should be smooth to redline. If the compressor is new and making a vibration, I would call the vendor you purchased it from. Tell them…"

A6 AC Compressor Noise

I have rebuilt all my AC setup on my 64 caddy with comfort control.  New A6 compressor, hoses, stv rebuilt, etc...However, the damn AC compressor vibrates at high rpm. I mean like if I'm going over 55, it gets worse the faster I travel.  Its to a point where I don't bother turning it on if I'm at Highway speeds. As soon as I turn the AC off the vibration disappears. I have read on a few sites that these compressors are so heavy and by design they vibrate a lot, is this true for any of you…See More

"Vince, You said your mast is broke but antenna works but is slow to go up and down so am a bit confused.  Main point of failures on these is that the nylon cord that wraps around a cup in the motor physically breaks.   These…"

Antena is next

So my next thing on the list of things to do on the Cadillac is the slow antena going up and down. My mast is broken but my antena works but at a very slow rate. Has anyone worked on rebuilding  the antena. I know the book says to go from underneath the car to get to it. My car(CA) has A/C, and in that fender is a whole lot of the A/C unit. Can it be rebuilt or should I just look for a new one. I have just AM but would love to have FM too but still have the original look. The sound system can…See More
