    Does it make a difference which wire is positive and which is negative on a two wire compressor? Mine isn't marked and I can hear what sounds like the clutch engaging either way.

    I'm installing A/C in my '67 Fairlane and was wondering about the location of the drier. Is there any advantage to locating it closer to the condenser or the evaporator? There's a good spot to locate it on the fan shroud a few feet from the condenser outlet. I'm thinking that would be a good...

    I'm putting a Vintage Air A/C system in my '67 Fairlane. There are a number of options on hoses and fittings. I'd like to hear from those that have done this installation and what you did about the hoses. I'm wondering if I should just install all the components and take it to a shop that...

    I'm going to be putting aftermarket AC in my '67 Fairlane. I've been talking to the guys at Vintage Air and they've been very helpful. The engine is a 351W from a '94 F-250 and although it didn't have AC initially it has the mounting bracket for the compressor. It's actually a large cast...

If there is an A/C diagram please post it! its a 79 firebird/camaro. There is a giant heat wave in southern California and its...

    Last summer I had the my AC system in my 79 Monte converted to R-134a, but immediately after fixing it the repair shop found the clutch to be smoking after running it for about 5 minutes. They quoted me like $500 to replace the entire compressor/clutch assembly, and I just let it drop. Since its...

    Hey guys. I have a 1984 Chevy C-10 and I had swapped the old 305 which was worn out for a better shaped 305. My A/C never had a belt on it but the controls for it worked and it would push air on the A/C or heater selection, but now my control just isn't working. I replaced the fuse in it. It...
