AC Replacement?

Year: 19855
Make: Chevrolet
Model: C10 LWB Truck
Engine Size: 350
Refrigerant Type: R12
Country of Origin: United States

Hello everyone,

I bought this truck 10 years ago and when I did the AC never worked...

After sitting for 5 years, I've begun to rebuild her and now that shes running, I would like to either replace the AC or rebuild it.

I'm not sure what she needs besides the ac pully/pump which I will buy new.

Any suggestions or ideas as to what I need to get the AC working? Last I was told by previous owner that it had a leak. It was/is and will assume R12.

I guess my question is what parts do I need to buy new? Rebuild or??


Will post photos tomorrow, as its dark now and they will come out bad...


Photo og AC system...

Might I be able to reuse some parts that I have?

Compressor, accumulator, Orifice Tube and have the hoses rebuilt for starters. Flush the condenser and evap. Replace all o-rings and recharge system back to specs.
