Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Tecumseh compressor for air conditioning systems for Mercury Cougars and Ford Mustangs. These should be professionally inspected or rebuilt and our compressors have all been in storage for some time. These Tecumseh compressors came with a front oil fill plug up until 1967, thereafter, they have a top fill plug. Top fill is the most common, and likely what you will receive, unless you specify the 1967 style with front fill. These units are shipped without pulleys, clutches, or valves. The Tecumseh compressor is constructed mostly of steel and is heavier than the York unit by 10 pounds. The York compressors are less common too and are subject to availability.
