Q & A

What's in the Box

The days of riding around trying to look cool while sweating your butt off are gone! So is going to the junkyard and trying to find used parts to cobble up an a/c system. These kits have three dash vents and two defrost ducts and are engineered for 1930's coupes, pick-ups and smaller cars.

These are designed with both the a/c evaporator and heater core in one unit which helps keep size and installation time down. They fit under the dash just like a new car and allow disassembly without removing the unit from the car.

They include dash louvers, defrost louvers, switch panel, a/c hose kit, dryer with switch, Sanden 508 compressor  with V-belt pulley, and evaporator/heater assembly. They are available with or without condenser and standard finish or deluxe polished aluminum compressor.

Hoses will need to be crimped by your local shop. R134a Freon required, but not supplied. Compressor brackets and heater hoses sold separately.

With 134 freon in a new system it should take 28.8 ounces or 1.8 pounds and if recharging only 1.5 pounds.

This A/C kit could be used in your '67 pickup with room permitting. You would likely need to remove the original heater box under the dash and out thru the firewall with the fan motor on the outside. Then there would be sufficient room. If not wanting to go that extreme and your existing heater is functional then you may consider an under the dash A/C unit such as number 91000535.

How the controls work There are no labels on the control. The fan is obvious. Which position is A/c, which is Heat?

The knob that shows the air outlet location also controls the A/C or heat selection. When the knob is positioned for the upper vents (symbol pointing to the head) the unit functions the A/C system. When the knob is positioned for the floor vents or defrost it is automatically in heat mode.

Would you substitute a serpentine belt type compressor instead of V belt for the same price? I have a SB Chevy engine both serpentine and V-belt drives on the pulley. It would be easier to route the serpentine belt to the compressor.
