I believe you guys were correct about the front axle disconnect. I inspected it and found one of the hoses to be cracked just before it connects to the vacuum motor. I have to finish a trans cooler...

I am working on upgrading mine to a larger one right now. But since I am not complete I cannot report any results. You are correct that R134a is less efficient then R12, while some people have no...

Mine had at least that much slop and I never had any problems with it. But anything is possible, if you have the time and resources I would suggest looking into fixing it.

Just in case anyone else is looking for AMC parts make sure you call NAPA. They actually still keep stuff in stock for us apparently. Including my elusive exhaust valve.

After getting the head removed and torn down I found a bent exhaust valve (although oddly not the valve that was sticking). The trouble I'm having is in finding another, all the places that have them...

Has anyone had any luck flushing their AC systems? Or perhaps know why you can't flush an expansion valve??

AC condenser upgrade
