1967 conti convert.. a/c questions

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys..well got my 67 back after 4 months of complete engine rebuild...however still no a/c..we filled it up with max amount of freon and it blew cold for bout 20 min then started warming up (never got colder than 70 ) after 30 min it was blowing hot air..massive leak..also evaporator ices up ..Im considering saying to hell with it and getting vintage air in dash (obviously some modifications are needed)...my mechanic is not a true a/c guy..should I give it one more shot with an expert..could it be as simple as a hose leaking?

Thanks in advance

The fact that the evaporator freezes up means that you have a blockage in the system possibly at the evap. Also if you had a leak, the center of the compressor would stop turning to protect the compressor because the freon has oil mixed with it for lubrication. Yes I would bring it to an A/C specialist that is experianced with an older system. He should be able to diag the problem with gauges installed. Good luck George.
