I tried to search for info on this topic but didn't find much. Hoping someone can help point me in the right direction.
I've got a '71 510 Wagon that came with A/C installed. We disconnected/cut hoses when I swapped in another L16 & I have the parts in storage. I live in Atascadero, CA where the temps have been in the mid 90's and even up to 106*
So, long story short, I'm sticking to my new vinyl seats & I need to reinstall the AC...ASAP!
I've been told I'd need an adapter kit but read here on the forum a comment about the kits being "cheap" fixes & how it should be "done right". Not a whole lot of details to follow.
My AC unit is the long one that runs the length of the dash basically. It blew air before disconnected, but don't remember if it was particularly cold. Either way, I know the old refrigerant has been DC'd & I have to convert it.
What's the best way to approach this & "do it right"?
Any & all help, tips, advice, or website links would be greatly appreciated.
