Air conditioning?
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:41:26 PM »
Just picked u a ‘90 rocky with the 1.6 liter inline 4. We live in Arizona, and I’m wondering if there’s a path to making some kind of air conditioning work in the Rocky?  We are looking into swamp coolers too, but ac would be a huge benefit.

TIA

I have a '91, which had A/C but the compressor needed rebuilding.  Got that done and later the system became intermittent on hot days.  Finally troubleshot down to a temperature switch screwed into the water cooling system.  That switch is hard to find.  It can be bypassed by running a ground wire to the chassis.

Read up in the service manual, as I recall some parts are peculiar to the A/C system and different for non A/C.
