I charged the AC in my car the other day,and it seems to work! I used an R-134A conversion kit. It blows 50* at the vent.They are supposed to be 40-45*. It shows circulation in the sight glass,and the lines to the evaporator,STV valve are frosted over. No leaks. I did notice the warm water cutoff motor in the open position while in AC,so I think once I troubleshoot the vacuum system,I'll have ice cold air. I have the shop manuals,and they tell how to diagnose them step by step. The motor does work,just not in all the control positions. The previous owner did cut some lines,And I serviced the heater core a while back. I may have a line somewhere blocked/crossed/unplugged.

Not too bad,for a system that was wide open when I got the car 3 years ago.

I t/s'ed the vacuum system this afternoon,and found it leaking at the temp selector. The harness seemed to be loose,but I couldn't get a good look at it,so I cleaned it and plugged it in good. I may have pulled it loose when I tied the wires from the stereo to the vacuum harness. We'll see if it works later this week.
