Griffiths Porsche 944 Kuehl AC Compressor Kit,  83-85/1

Griffiths offers an alternate solution compressor “kit” for your 944. 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 swashplate design offering smooth performance with R134a refrigerant. 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 R134a & R12 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 are converting from R12 over to R134a, then we suggest you pick Ester oil.
  • 2) If your 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 who did the work and ask them, or contact the previous owner.
  • 3) You will be cutting off the fitting of the factory suction line at the compressor end and inserting our fitting and securing it with a clamp; fitting and clamp included.

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.
