Re: Ford C350 Dual Air - trouble

So I have the orifice tube out. It was pretty stuck in there (so glad I had hemostats). I do not think it looks bad. The oil had dye in it, quite bright. There was not much, but some almost graphite colored soot in some of the oil in the nooks and crannies. Not reflective like metal, but just grey. ...

Re: Ford C350 Dual Air - trouble

FYI. Thanks for hanging out on a Saturday... I saw the same thing with the hose. May as well replace it. I agree. You have a link to the Piccolo/Parallel/Flat condenser units? It sounds interesting, if not for this truck, maybe for the other. Electrical all checks out as it should. All good. I'll ge...

Re: Ford C350 Dual Air - trouble

Yup, you nailed the Centurion. I have the option sheet somewhere. Interesting truck. For the last decade or so, the truck sits for a couple months at a time, then gets used for a few weeks, then back in storage, Repeat. It has not had the AC serviced in years. About 2 months ago, it went into daily ...

Ford C350 Dual Air - trouble

The vehicle is a Ford C350 Centurion with Dual Air. For those unfamiliar with the Centurion, it was an option from Ford back before the Expedition to make essentially a four door bronco. The FS10 compressor has locked up. One wet morning, turned on the defrost and I smelt something burning and shut ...
