    Who makes an adapter block to get -8 and -10 fittings off the later model (1998) AC pump?

    I've seen that one a few times, but always listed as GM. I suppose I should just grab one and see if it fits.

    Thanks!

    One thought, since your engine uses a Sanden compressor, you can get various Sanden rear caps for ~$20 on ebay, many choices w/ #8 & #10 O-ring ports. There are 2 types or cap (5 bolt or 7 bolt). However, your rear cap has special mounting holes, so if you need those it wouldn't work.

    Hi 67Charger,
    If you you end up getting one, please let us know if it works. I know myself and others either have the same question or will in the near future.

    Thanks,
    Travis

      I used the hoses from the dodge truck that have the correct block that mounts to the compressor. Cut the ends that went to the condenser and evap and had an A/C shop put new ends on them.

      That's the plan if this doesn't work. I received it in the mail as I was pulling out to go to work (second shift). I'll know more tomorrow.

      So, it looks like it will work fine if I drill a counterbore in the bottom of the bolt hole to clear the raised lip around the bolt hole on the pump. I'm not going to, however, since I want to send it back and get the same thing with rear exits rater than top exits to clean up the plumbing a little better. I saw a universal swiveling on on eBay that may work better for less money.
