Porsche 928 Kuehl AC Compressor Kit 1978-1979

Griffiths’ Porsche 928 Kuehl AC Compressor Kit 1978-1979 is an alternate solution compressor for your Porsche 928. This is our Kuehl (pronounced “cool”) compressor kit. Our Kuehl Compressor kit bolts right on to your existing compressor mount. The Kuehl is simple to install as our kit includes everything you’ll need and it’s R134a ready.

The Kuehl is a swash plate design offering smooth performance with R134a or R12 refrigerants. Since the Kuehl is a “new” compressor you don’t have to worry about core deposits and it runs with the existing stock drive belt.

  • Compatible with R12 or R134a refrigerants.
  • No core returns required.
  • Keep your old compressor.
  • 1 year limited warranty.

When you place your order please choose the type of refrigerant oil you wish to use in your system. We can provide you either Ester or PAG and here is how you can determine which is the best option of oil to choose:

  • 1) If you plan to continue to use R12 refrigerant, OR, if you are converting from R12 over to R134a, then we suggest you pick Ester oil.
  • 2) If you car has already been converted to R134a then the type of oil could be either Ester or PAG.  If the conversion procedure was well documented then there should be a “blue” colored R134a refrigerant sticker somewhere in the engine compartment noting the type of oil, or the service work order or invoice might note the type of oil, or you could contact the service facility whom did the work and ask them, or contact the previous owner.
  • 3) Starting around 1993 all 928’s used R134a refrigerant with PAG oil.

We suggest that if the system has Ester or PAG that you continue to use that same type of oil and not mix the two.

If you are unsure as to what refrigerant oil you should choose, please contact us and we will assist you.

  1. Douglas O.

    Finding parts for my 1979 Porsche 928 is quite a challenge. I needed a new A.C. compressor. I bought one from another company that said they had the correct replacement but it wouldn’t mount. I stumbled upon Griffiths and their rebuild kit fit perfectly. It had all the parts and retro mounting brackets for the 79 which is different from other model years. It’s been almost a year now and it’s still working. Thank God too because my car is black.

    Easy to install and worked perfectly
