Re: AC System for engine swapped vehicle

A lot depends on the system components - are you trying to use the OEM Volvo condenser? The GM CCOT system would mean changing to an accumulator after the evaporator at least. If you are seeing HPCO activity, you will need to get us some pressure readings & temps to help you. High / Low / Ambien...

Re: Lincoln Town Car - Complete replacement, how to clean?

Flushing a hose is simple with it removed. Pour some mineral spirits in it holding it in a "U" so it stays put. Hold a thumb over each end & shake violently. Dump the solvent in to a clean container & inspect the solvent for debris. Repeat if necessary. Blow dry air through it unti...

Re: Knock off compressor

Hog Killer: The R4 makes a fine anchor for small craft - better if you weld a few together. I could have recommended an HR980... In the last 20 years high speed machining has really moved forward. We are at the point of taking repeatability in the 50 Millionths range for granted. Cutter grinding &am...

Re: Lincoln Town Car - Complete replacement, how to clean?

That is a CCOT system, so the O/T should have stopped any trash before it got to the evaporator. If the compressor was shedding debris the condenser is the primary filter. I would contact Tim at AC Kits for replacement compressor & condenser - the condenser on that car is also the trans cooler. ...

Re: Should AC Clutch Coil Be Hot

There is no inductance in steady state DC. Air core or not, it does not matter.

It gets hot? Huh. 14v X 3.5a = 49 WATTS. How long can you hold an energized 50w incandescent light bulb in your hand?

How many times did the Shorted coil blow the fuse in the vehicle?

Re: going crazy!!! please help me before i loose it ! lol

You can add some refrigerant, and see where things go - sometimes you get lucky. Run the engine speed up to 1500 rpm or higher. Cabin fan on highest speed, doors open Monitor the high side pressure as you add to the low side. When the pressures on the high side get to 2.8 times the ambient temperatu...

Re: going crazy!!! please help me before i loose it ! lol

Pressures are only an indication of how well the system is (or is not) operating. Charging is done by weight, because the refrigerant can exist as both a liquid & a gas within the same system depending on temperature & pressure. There is no simple way to measure the volume of the refrigerant...

Re: cool AC only when idling, warms up when revving

Recover the system & weigh it - probably low on charge.
