Resurrecting 1970 GM AC with POA

Hi my name is Clint and I'm working to get the factory air working on my 1970 Chevrolet Nova. I am a mechanical engineer with a background on the theory of refrigeration cycles, but this is my first time diving into the practical implementation of automotive AC. I stumbled on this forum while resear...

Maybe the reference pressure back to the TXV was out of whack. Whatever it was I'm...

Re: poa system questions

What kind of flush are you using to clean out the system and the POA valve? I take it the POA must have been stuck in a partially open position as opposed to fully open since only a partial position would restrict flow out of the evaporator and lead to higher evap pressure / temps. When you were hav...
