From the start (again)

My had A/C with the original 390 motor. It had an engine change at some point to a 289, and all the interior (from the firewall back) A/C parts are still present.

There are remains of the A/C system in the engine bay which i have documented here

I have studied the Vacuum Schematics Manual but cant make head nor tail of it ::

I want to try and re-do the A/C system but am not 100% what im missing. I know there's a condensor missing, but thats all

Could some A/C experts please have a look at that page and tell me what exactly else is missing , or should be there, but i think ive covered all the remaining parts

(its a late December '67 car, if thats important)

Thanks!

Gary

You have the expansion valve still attached to the evaporator, still have the vacuum reservoir attached to the inner fender....

There is a vacuum line from the "tee" on the motor to a "check valve", from there to the vacuum reservior. Coming out of the vacuum reservior, a smaller vacuum hose goes inside the car that actuates the controls.

You are missing the high pressure (liquid) line, the low pressure suction line, heater control valve. I recommend that you pull the AC box, remove the evaporator and have it flushed, install a new expansion valve.

Classic Auto Air (813-251-2356) has all the parts you'll need plus their catalog has detailed diagrams of the underhood area and the underdash area also. They specialize in 64.5-73 Mustangs and Falcons.

Thanks guys!

Could you give me a rough estimate id expect to pay for all those parts? Are they rare or plentiful?
