AC Modernization Kit
« on: March 15, 2022, 08:25:44 PM »
Hey everyone!

I worked with J.W. at acautosolutions and he put together an Eagle kit that includes a parallel flow condenser for R134a.  Great guy over there, American made parts, and direct fit for our Eagles.  I'll update when my kit comes in.  And if this doesn't fit your Eagle then maybe he can put one together for later models.

Well not quite what I was hoping for as it is somewhat a choose your own adventure game with the hoses but it is a parallel flow condenser and an r134a compressor.

it had been my plan to raw dog the old compressor on a PAG oil shot with r134 this summer, much like Ive done to my truck, but let me know how the new stuff works out for you.
