Engine Size: 350
hey Guys... i bought a 1976 Corvette last fall and the previous owner had the motor replaced about 5 years ago but chose not to reconnect the a/c compressor. All of the components are there and I was given the compressor with the car. I'm curious if I can get by with replacing the hoses (they were cut) and reconnecting everything then having it checked for pressure and leaks and have it recharged or if it's likely going to need a lot of stuff replaced first. Can you guys give me some suggestions what all to check out before I spend any money on this system? About $1400 will replace the system with a new "Vintage Air" system but i'd really like to not spend that if i can help it.
I would have hose made up or source new ones. Then check the system for leaks and see hose it works. Change all the o-rings and plan on replacing the compressor if thew seals are shot.
