TXV a/c system questions

cejay825 on Mon April 20, 2009 10:59 PM User is offline

I'm building an after market 134 system for my non a/c GTO. I'm using a seltec comp,and an under dash evap unit w/TXV. Does this mean that the comp. will run continuously
when a/c is turned on ? If so, is this good or bad ? Is there a way to make this system cycle ? or maybe it doesn't need to??????????????

Rotary or preset thermostat will take care of you cycling issues.

thanks for the responce

So put this on the evap pipe, run the comp. power through it, and set the temp ?

Best to insert the probe in the fins of the core itself.

sounds good to me!

I was just concerned with the comp. running all the time.

Thanks for the help!

That's what the thermostat will cure! You have to cycle the compressor when the core gets to the point of freezing. Other wise it will just turn to a block of ice.
