Re: Bad solar sensor cause ac clutch to cycle quickly?

Any defective component can cause issues with the a/c system. If you solar sensor is reading a incorrect temp. It "could" be sending a incorrect signal to the ecm. Really should not cause it to cycle. But again, defective item and you have issues.

Re: Water Dripping from Evap, suction line warm

Never trust someone's charge level. Reclaim and recharge to proper specs. Then see if you still have a low pressure issues.

Look for leaks in the case and or kicked off drain tube.

Re: R12 to R134 back to R12? Will there be problems?

Short reply, find a shop that has a refrigerant ana1lyer. Have the refrigerant tested. If R134 & R12. Follow Hecats flushing procedure and replace the oil, drier and o-rings. Charge back with R134a and see how it performs. Or clean the system and charge back with R12 if you can find some.

Re: Aftermarket Freeze Switch Part Number and Location?

If I'm understanding you issue.

Replacement of the thermostat. As the switch itself, it can be mounted anywhere.
Thermostat probe has to go into the evaporator core to work correctly.

Re: 91 Volvo 240 manifold gauge question

Thanks, Tim. It is just strange that there was a fitting on the high side that fits the cold side gauge, and no fitting for R134a on the cold side. Sorry but this makes little to no sense. You attaching both gauge lines to the Low/Suction side of the system. You have an R12 system someone is trying...

Re: 91 Volvo 240 manifold gauge question

High side lone is hooked to an R12 Low side service port.

Follow the lines from the condenser back for the High side port. Normally the bottom line from the Condenser.
