Charging the air conditioning with R12

Hi Guys,The never ending saga continues.I'm thinking that rebuilding the rotary valve has the pneumatic system working now.  I have a vacuum pump and a new filter dryer.  I also borrowed a set of R12 gauges.  I also have 30 pounds of R12 (long story). Can anyone point me to a procedure specifically for charging ?  I know the system is flat and tight now (I pulled a vacuum and it held for two days). See More

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
