  1. Hi, I am new to this forum & am looking for some help with the A/C on my 1993 Olds. When I got the vehicle the freon had all leaked out so I am trying to recharge it. I bought a conversion kit to R134a and have been able to get the compressor to run by snipping the wires to the compressor clutch & direct wiring it from the battery so that now it has a full charge. However, when I put it back on its own electrical wiring. the compressor won't kick in and run. I've run down the codes on the ALDL and the only error I got was 23 = MAT/IAT, which I've confirmed is faulty. I was able to clear that code by bypassing the IAT with a paperclip (!) and now there are no error codes, so I'm thinking it's not the ECM. So...I'm trying to figure out who the other suspects might be. Any ideas? I found the high pressure sensor but I'm not sure how to bypass/check that. I'm not sure if there is a sensor on the low pressure side, or what other components I should be checking. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much for taking time to read & respond!
  2. 1-29-14 I am writing an illustrated history of the evolution of factory air conditioning and am currently seeking 1953-1960 Oldsmobile press releases, owner's manuals, fact book information and other pertinent ephemera which includes the initial road testing, introduction and updating of the air conditioning systems. With this exercise, the legacy of the air conditioning literature will be utilized and recorded. In a much larger context, I have collected multi-make AC literature and am in the process of writing about AC evolution through illustrations not only of Oldsmobile, but of all car makes, 1953-1960, plus the 1940-1942 time period. I will appreciate your response and I will ensure that your contributions will be credited in the publication. Thank you, Archiveman2977 Allen B. Simons
  3. Complete A/C system from a 1966 Chrysler Town and Country, everything is there, everything all ref. openings were covered upon removal, compressor turns freely. Contact bdeane5527@windstream.net
  4. Hi! Looking for a AC Duct for my 1957 Buick with factory Air. This is the fiberglas duct (square in one end, and round in the other) that goes from AC house on the firewall and out towards the inner fender connected to the heaterbox . I will try to see if I can get some pictures or drawing. This was as many other parts ONE YEAR only!
  5. Well, I guess it was bound to happen; I had to have my heater core replaced in my 1963 (and, from what my mechanic told, it wasn't the first time it was replaced, either--but, hey, it's 50 years old). Anyway, no more foggy windows, leaks, or odd smells. However, my a/c seems to be on almost all the time--blowing nice, frosty air--even with all the levers in the off position. I have noticed that if the car isn't moving for a while that the airflow stops, if that's relevant. Searched the forums here but didn't find anything. I will be speaking to my mechanic today, but I figured I'd see if: 1. Anyone else have this problem? 2. Any ideas on correction (and/or if this represents a more serious problem)?
  6. Here is a question: My grandma is wanting to restore an old chevy that has been in storage and inoperable for decades. There is no AC in the car and GMA doesn't think we should add it. I like the idea of having wings on a car and it seems to be a pretty good alternative to AC. Except here is the problem: The car doesnt have wings and adding them as a permanent feature is not an option. I haven't been able to find any place that sells non-permanent wings that you can just fit into the window frame[while the window is down]. So I have designed a wing that you can fit into the window....but first I have a couple questions before I do that. Question 1: Do you know of any place that sells temporary wings that you can just place into the window frame, to get more breeze in the car? Question 2: If I do go forward and submit my design to a manufacturer do you think that other people in the classic car community would be interested in this option breezy option to AC? Question 3: Any things that you can think of that I need to include in my design of this AC alternative? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
