Unhappy A5 A/C compressor

Does anyone know where I can get a picture breakdown (assembly procedure) for an a5 compressor. Only concerned about seal and clutch. Can't do anything with the rest of it because it is a sealed unit and that part can't be rebuilt. Olds used them from 58 to 61. There is not much in service manual.

Will an A6 bolt in? I've seen only a couple of those A5's but they looked very similar to A6 sizewise. I would think the clutch and shaft seal would also be similar.

Past that, check the Cadillac and Buick manuals, and check with vintage literature dealers who may have some Frigidaire stuff.

A5 a/c compresso

Yes an A6 will fit just trying to keep it original. I found a print and assembly picture for the A5. The problem with an A6 is the cost. A single belt pulley compressor is about less than half of a double belt pulley compressor. Close to $6 big ones for the double pulley. Olds just used the double pulley for 58 thru 61. Bought a seal off ebay for a 58 but it's not.
Thanks for your input
