Re: System on Fire Engine

The system moves a lot of air and at 47 vent temp, it does a good job of keeping us cool.

Connections for the gauges are on the compressor. I would call it a long run of hose from there to the evaporator. It’s a cab over and the evaporator is mounted to the roof on the inside of the cab.

Re: System on Fire Engine

I’ll work on it again Sunday. The evap case is already off so we can look for dye. It won’t be much work to check the inlet.

Changed the expansion valve and dryer. It’s worked until just recently. Has dye in it. No obvious leaks noted...
