A/C Install

I just got a used A/C for my 95. I am fairly sure it is a Wynns unit and it came out of a 95. I am fairly mehcanically inclined, however, I work best with a set of instructions. I purchased a CD from Land Rover Classics with workshop manuals etc, but they don't have specific instructions. Do any of you guys that work at a dealership have any kind of instructions for the install, or does anyone else have instructions? Thanks for the help.

I may have what you need. When I get home I will check.
I was having some troubles also, someone sent some instructions, but not sure which unit I have the instructions for. I believe it is for a 95 kit from RN....

Maybe Bryan converted them to digital? if not I'll send you a xeroxed set via snail mail...PM me your address...
I wonder if it would be worth converting them to digital anyway for posting on this site? anyhow, let me know...

Sorry to hijack this thread, but does anyone has any info about converting their AC from R12 to R134A? Does anything have to be done (like a conversion kit) or can you just change over?

thanks
charles

I don't know...must be a rather universal question around all the car groups though...as to what I have heard (worth what you paid for it) you just buy a 134 recharge kit and you're good to go...In my past, I took the car (my BMW) to a shop that does AC and asked them to change it over...cost like $250 bucks as I recall...and has been working for about 4 years...

If someone would scan them it would be appreciated as I am planning to remove my 95 style AC.

can anyone give me some guidance on what settings to use to scan a set so they'd be legible via email and then I can just email these out to folks...

Just scan and convert to PDF. Should be fine to read via email.

If you don't have to convert from R12 to R134, don't do it. The oils that the two different refrigerants use are not compatible (among other things). If you are mechanically inclined, get EPA certified for R12 ($20 course on-line) and buy R12 on e-bay for less than $20.00/lb. You can then pay someone to evacuate and refill the system, or do it yourself with the proper equipment. Don't let anyone tell you that it is as simple as changing the fittings, it is much more involved than that.

My 2-cents,

Joseph

Thanks Joseph

Mine has a slow leak somewhere and I assume is empty (haven't used it in a year). If I don't want to go the certification route, I assume I'm just going to have to pay shop prices to get the leak fixed and it filled then. Bummer - was hoping a change to R134 would be easy and something I could do.

I have heard the A/C compressor would make a fine OBA pump. Perhaps thats a better use for it

thanks
charles

Wow. I checked the side of my compressor and sure enough its HFC 134! But I *thought* mine was R12 since the '94 manual I have says so. I checked my 95/97 manual and it says R134. Go figure.

Thanks Ron! I have already smacked myself for not checking the compressor first.
