Air conditioning

I have a Vintage Air system in my car, I have a square bulkhead in the firewall. I want to disconnect the ac portion of the unit but leave everything in but the condenser. Can I just cap off the inner side of the bulkhead and not remove the pump?

Re: Air conditioning

call vintage air and see if they sell #6 and #8 or #10 caps for the o-ring fittings used on the bulkheads, I haven't seen them, I think they may have an online catalog, so you could look them up too. I have recently been buying many of their parts and I cant remember seeing any caps but worst case they can sell you hose ends so you could use a short piece to go from whatever size o-ring fitting to some npt threaded fitting and then cap that, but beware their fittings are very expensive. You could always use a short hose and put a u bend in it with the correct o-ring fitting for the 2 hoses you want to plug and use the ez clip fittings, but if i deadheaded the liquid line to the vapor line, I would ensure the belt was removed from the compressor, or the wire was removed so the clutch would never engage while hoses were blocked off?
if I am understanding what you are trying to do?
I just looked in the catalog, no caps shown?

Re: Air conditioning

Why would you take everything out except the condenser mounted in front of the radiator.

Or are you saying youíre going to take it out but leave the evaporator in the passenger compartment?
