[DML] AC Repairs



Hey gang,
Thanks to Dave Sontos I've finally gotten AC to operate again in my car.  After replacing the compressor, condenser, accumulator, orifice tube, and hoses as well as doing a rebuild of the mode switch it is now operating for the first time since I purchased the car!  Sure makes a big difference driving the car while not sweating the whole time.  If anyone is planning on replacing AC parts in the future I would highly recommend John Hervey's items available on his website.  His AC hoses in particular with the splice are a much needed improvement on the system since they can definitely be installed without removing the body from the frame(although as Dave can attest to it takes some grunting and twisting).  I went ahead and switched to 134A since you can buy it at Wal-Mart for $8 a can as opposed to the $29 a can I was paying online for R12 after receiving my EPA certification.  This continues to be a learning experience for me and thanks to people like Dave and John it is all starting to come together!
