Additional Information

This website contains every component needed to add a/c to almost any vehicle. This page will help you select the correct a/c unit for your vehicle, and it will provide a checklist of all the parts needed to purchase a complete kit.


Evaporator selection

When selecting an evaporator you need to know if you want an In-dash or an Under-dash unit. The in dash will require you to remove the old heater box. You will be adding a new heater, and air unit that will also use the defrost outlets if a defrost Y is purchased. An under-dash unit will mount beneath the dash. The units are available with heat, and some will allow for defrost hookup. When selecting an evaporator unit for your vehicle, you should measure the amount of room you have behind or beneath the dash to be sure the unit will fit. If you are unsure you can email us your vehicle specs and we can help you with the evaporator selection. The units will have measurements next to their descriptions. The width is how wide the unit is, from passenger side to the driver side. The height is from top of dash to the floor, and the depth is from the firewall out towards the seat of the car. The evaporator page will give you the rest of the information needed to select an evaporator.


Compressor mount kit selection

Chevy

To select the correct bracket for your engine you will need to know if the engine is a small block or big block, which side of the engine the alternator is on, and if the engine has a long or short water pump. The simplest way to tell if you have a long or short pump is to look at the engine. Where the pump sits it will either have a gap between the water pump and the timing chain cover or it will not have a gap. If there is a gap, about one inch, it is a long pump. If the pump is up against the timing cover it is short. After figuring out which pump you have, you will need to know which side of the engine the alternator is on. If you have a driver side mount alternator you will need a passenger side compressor mount.

Ford, Dodge, Jeep, and other brackets

These brackets are all straight forward, they are selected by CID and year of the engine

Universal Bracket

The York / universal bracket will be your best bracket if you need to fabricate one for an engine that is not listed. This bracket will serve as a starting point if you do need to fabricate one. We stock many brackets but the manufactures do not make them for most Oldsmobile and Buick engines. We do have some so email us first. This bracket will serve as a starting point if you do need to fabricate one.


Compressor selection

The Compressor you will receive with our kits will be chosen by our technicians depending on what Engine you have . The Compressors we send will either be a Sanden Style or OEM Sanden (508 or 709). If you have a preference for what Compressor you want, please notify us using the comments during checkout or call us at 1-888-977-8889.  If you need a serpentine setup just let us know on the comment page when ordering.

If you are using a GM compressor you will need a GM adapter to use the hose kit. This item is on the gm compressor backs page, (bottom of compressors page)

A bigger compressor will not enhance the performance of the system.


Condenser selection

A bigger condenser is not necessarily better. Condensers are the most critical part of the a/c system. We do not list them if they are not large enough for the system. If you would like a larger condenser, it will not hurt the system, just be sure you have enough room for one in your vehicle. If you have a pre-1945 vehicle you may have to use the vertical Street rod condenser.
