I'll check on the A/C compressor...where have you looked? Is it rebuildable?

I too have got my A/C apart since I had a hose off of the compressor blow
and decided to replace all the seals. Then I decided to replace a
potentially bad hose, but I then realized there's another one that doesn't
look too good, so there's one more to buy. I've even got a new
receiver/dryer as well. I have intentions to stay with R12, but I don't
have any money for anything at the moment. The question has come up, so
I'll put a query out.

Definitely you should replace ALL of the o-rings and garter springs.
There's also some retainer clips that Ford started putting on the later
cars, but I haven't actually gotten my hands on them yet.

Get back to me if I don't get to you.
