    OK you do it yourselfers, I need your help before I have a nervous breakdown. I have been going through my AC system and currently have my compressor totally apart. For those that have had theirs apart there is a piece behind the compressor pulley that bolts to the body with four bolts that the electrical harness plugs into. Within this piece there is a bearing about one inch in diameter along with a seal that is probably a little smaller than that. WHY CAN"T I GET THESE!!!! I have been to the dealer and they only sell the whole piece for $53. The local parts store can only get the whole compressor. This bearing and seal has to be available. The bearing is a Torrington and even has the part number 2-126 on it and still no one can get it. The seal has a few markings but probably no help. I bought a rebuild kit for the compressor and none of the parts in it match up. My truck has been down at least two weeks due to this and I am ready to flip. I don't have the money to buy a new compressor and hate the fact nowadays that no one does anything themselves. Everyone just replaces things even though they need $4 worth of parts. The economy must be great for some. Doesn't anybody cater to the do it yourselfer anymore? I need these parts like right now. Can anyone help, I guess I can see why people just replace. The simplist parts are &(**^$ impossible to get!!

    Only recomendation I can give you is to look for an Auto A/c shop that does conversions or complete installs for cars that did not have factory air. Doubt they will have what you need either, but thats the only thing I can come up with. Nobody has the tools, time, or talent to do that stuff at home anymore, so they just farm it out. I hate not being able to find the simplest things to work on for my K5 as well. I usually end up going to the junk yard and getting parts.
