    93 ATX, I've had a Freon leak since I've owned the car, and have finally found where the leak is coming from which is the shaft and top manifold port on the compressor. I have reman. compressor I'm going to install and I know both compressor manifold lines are obsolete, and mine seem to be in decent condition, but the O-rings are trashed. I was wondering are there special O-rings for the compressor port lines or just use the O-rings that come in the kit?? The ones that are up there are green and flat, and seem to lodge in there pretty good.

    The o rings that came with your new compressor should work fine.

    they are flat because they have taken a set (deformed permanently) from being smashed in the groove for years. They were round originally, and they are likely to leak because they are now rectangular in cross section rather than round. If you didn't get new ones w/ the compressor, the parts store will have them, although you may need to buy a whole kit of o-rings to get the ones you need.

    I don't think my compressor came with O-rings, but I'll check. I did buy a O-ring kit. Just didn't know if there was a special flat o-ring. That makes sense, thanks for the help.
