'85 22R Expansion Valve location, etc...

mbruffy on Tue August 28, 2007 7:25 PM User is offline

Year: 1985
Make: Toyota
Model: Pickup
Engine Size: 2.4L
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Country of Origin: United States

I have an '85 Toyota PU w/ a 22R engine (Carbureted) that I'm installing a complete a/c system into (it's never had a/c before) and I have been able to install everything but the expansion valve and a couple of other electrical components, I'm really not sure what they are called or what they do. Can anybody provide me some info on where the expansion valve is located on this a/c system and where the tubing goes/connects to? Also where the electrical components of the a/c system would be located as well.

Whose kit do you have? This would be a big help if you could provide us with more info.

It's a used system off of another '85 pickup with a 22R engine, I'm going to also convert it over to r134a. I have the compressor, condensor, new drier, evaporator and hoses installed, I haven't charged the system yet or put a vacuum on it, I'm actually wondering if I should buy a new or remanufactured compressor first (any thoughts on that would be helpful) and put that in instead. The expansion valve I have no clue as to where it goes, as well as the other electrical components. I've done some a/c work on a previous 4runner I had with a 22RE engine but it already had a whole system in it, however I never bothered to learn where all the components where at. So I'm a bit out of my comfort zone with this project but I'm trying to learn. Anyways, thats where I'm at now so any help would be appreciated.
