Air conditioning a V4? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I have a nearly complete, never installed dealer A/C kit from 1970 that I would like to fit in my 1972 96. It’s missing the compressor and bracket which is fine since I would like to use a modern R134A Sanden-type compressor and condenser anyway. Has anyone gone with modern components like this? I’m wondering if it would still be necessary to switch to steel timing gears with a modern compressor which I assume would put a lot less load on the system than the giant old York. I’m a bit hesitant to crack open my rebuilt Ashcraft engine which has 0 miles on it to do this.
