Custom AIRE (A/C system)

Postby Fairlane 500 » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:38 pm

I pulled this system off a Fiat 124 Spider. Not long after I built a system for my Spider.

It's made by a company called "Custom AIRE". The evaporator "box" measures 12X5" . Any idea how many BTUs this thing would produce? I'm having a heck of a time trying to find a system that will fit under the dash of my 68 Ford Fairlane and I think this might fit under the glove box and I can run ductwork from the outlet holes.

I suppose as long as the vents are hitting my body, it should keep me cool but probably not cool the inside the cabin.

The fan works on all speeds but the switch appears to be messed up. Of course I'm going to replace the expansion valve. The capillary tube is broken going from the thermostat so that will have to be replaced as well.

So basically I'd be using the housing, fan and evaporate coil.
