[DML] Re: Stumped In AZ with AC

Dave - 

New compressor, new orifice tube, A/C accumulator, o-ring kit & valve 
kit green for R12, system evec and recharge with R12 system checked 
OK 7/30/2004.  Did a short jump from the positive post in engine bay 
to see if compressor would kick in - it did.  Did not leave run long 
enough to see if it would run cold air just a quick test. What am I 
missing - need more info on the switch on the accumulator bottle how 
do I jump there?

Thanks to all!


Melting in AZ at 115* in garage temp 110*
