    I know how to identify which pump is the bigger one by the crankshaft and all and using the tag for a reference. Here is the question. Were the larger stroke compressors used in larger vehicles? The reason I ask is the compressor I have located at the local junkyard is of course still in the vehicle and they won't let me yank the pulley to properly identify the crank shape. I really don't want to shell out the cash for the smaller compressor. The vehicle is a 1978 Ford Fairmont. Not sure of engine size in this particular POS. Anybody have any clues?

    Not sure if there is a refference to a large compressor in a larger car but I got mine from a volvo and it is the large stroke compressor.

    apparently they liked to change these tags when the compressor is serviced and the plate they put on has no numbers on it pertaining to the stroke. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    numbers are as follows:

    YP0564222
    D50H-2875-A2B
    05-78

    I don't recognize any of these as a stroke indication.

    read pretty much all I can about identifying these. All say the best way is to open it up and look at the crank. What kind of volvo did your come out of? Might help my search.
