Re: 1979 Lincoln ATC

Re: 1979 Lincoln ATC

Sounds like the POA was changed to a POA eliminator set up. Do not forget you have in car temperature sensors. As mentioned, A6 compressors were not meant to be cycled. GM cycled them for one year and they found out what happens. Then they went to the R4 with larger clutch surfaces. This was around ...

Re: A/C blowing hot air

Take it one step at a time. You do not need the refrigeration system to check and repair the inside blower system. Make sure the blower system is working correctly. 2002 model years probably used vacuum actuators to move the airflow if I remember correctly. There are repair kits in the field so you ...

Re: POA valve cleaning and calibrating

yes that is an adjustment screw. You would use a 7/32 socket and probably a pair of long nose piers. The socket will hold the adjustment while you tighten the screw. It is bear and you will see what I mean. If using R12, you should not have to touch it. I would use clean mineral oil for flushing. Th...

Re: POA valve cleaning and calibrating

There were instructions on testing in the tips section but they are long gone due to upgrades. POA lo side should be 28 to 32 PSI with r12 depending upon your sea level. Test off the vehicle by connecting high side hose to shop air about 65 to 75 PSI. Connect manifold middle hose to input of POA and...

Re: New A/C compressor locked up after not operating for 6 months

Original post states system worked fine and went bad after sitting 6 months. Also, rear fitting may be for a low charge switch thus 1/4 inch flare fitting.

Re: Help with refrigerant

At the minimum, a complete disassembly and flushing should be done. How do you know a buy did not get into the system? I would suggest you also replace the hoses and POA as well as the TXV. I would also pull the evaporator and replace the foam rubber mountings so you do not have air leaks around the...
