79 Ford Bronco AC conversion old to new 95 5.8l efi

dave63 on Thu June 07, 2012 6:30 PM User is offline

Year: 1979
Make: Ford
Model: Bronco
Engine Size: 5.8
Refrigerant Type: 134
Country of Origin: United States

Guys,
I'm new here and came to the site hoping to get a little specialized help. I have an old 79 Ford Bronco with the original factory A/C box and lines driven by a horizontal York. I've replaced the old M motor with a 1996 5.8l efi and the compressor mount will take a fs10 or a sd709. After the mount it's connecting original lines with fitting adaptors and making any changes to the system.

I've read that some of the old evaporators were not that efficient from the R12 era, that the lines can be porous and give up r134. I'm willing to replace everything but the evaporator (because I'm not sure one is available). Which compressor is better fs10 or sd709, any recommendations. I'm aware that these are engineered systems but I've only got what's included to work with. Is there hope? The current York system never had a failure so the components are old but not full of shrapnel.
Thanks

Sanden Compressor.

Upgrade the condenser to one of these.

TRB,
Thanks for helping so quickly. I'll have the box apart to upgrade the heater core this weekend. Ill try to match it. Are the fittings pretty standard on these? What are they a combination of npt and AN? I'm pretty noob to A/C will need more help i'm sure. I see they guys sell packages with all the components. Mine would be a mix so it probably wouldn't work or would they make one up.

These condensers use a #8 and #6 o-ring fitting.
