Have no immediate plans to get the A/C in our 80 Volare going.....I figure the kiddo can muddle through with no A/C just like his Dad has to inb the Barracuda...LOL....let him develop an appreciation for it. That said, I am just sitting here pondering things and the A/C came into my mind. We know the compressor works , or seems to....when we got it and tried charging it, it runs but cycles on and off too fast and eventually stops working altogether as the charge leaks out. No apparent leaks anywhere, of course the engine bay has been cleaned at this point. I figure: two hose assemblies....condensor, evaporator , accumulator/drier All those parts are easy to replace . And parts available on Rockauto..though I didnt see hose assemblies.....EXCEPT for the evaporator---buried deep in the bowels of the dash. The heater box in my 72 Cuda is a breeze to get in and out but the box in the 80 Volare looks like a real PITA. Anyone have any feedback on that in particular? The hose assemblies look fine but we all know how that goes. The biggest issue I see if that evacuating the system and recharging has to be done and if there is still a leak after replacing one item it has to be redone again.....rinse and repat til you get it right. That will get $$$$$$. Any other feedback as far as a tact going forward should the A/C eventually rise to the priority level currently filled by more important issues?
