Re: Installing Aftermarket AC in a Dodge Van

IMO, you will never get it to cool with a single system. Just too much volume of air to cool enough. Many have hung curtains or the freezer vinal behind the seats to reduce the volume.

Re: Charging R134A as a liquid into the high side with engine off

Slugging happens more when the gauges are connected to the compressor itself. I always have, and most will charge as a liquid unless I'm using an R & R machine. But there is a concern when charging as a liquid. SO be gentle; no need to open the gauges wide open right off the bat when charging.

Re: CLUTCHED compressor shear pin?

It's a piston compressor, so there is no internal control valve. Zero pressure and hub turning, possible broken shaft.

That's funny. Youtube has a video on how to snip an image instead of linking to a page.

No Amazon, eBay, or outside vendor links on this site. Ask your questions, but keep the promotion links on that company's website. They don't pay the bills here.
