I'm going to try and get a new to me compressor in the coming weeks. The orignal unit was removed just as i bought the car and i've running with no compressor for months. I can bolt the new unit on and connect all pipes but I'm just wondering if there could be any other issues with the AC system for not having a compressor on for 8 months. The pipes have been covered up all this time (Well, I think they are still covered). any advice would be great. thanks.
