I have stock a/c hookup on my truck still. The HVAC box had to be cut to accomidate the valve cover, I also modified the core support to move the condenser and radiator further forward in the core support. I also used flex-a-lite 210 fans. The fans ended up being about 1/4 inch from the end of the water pump pulley.
yeah i started out with out it cuz i was in a hurry to get the v8 goin, but i saved everything and installed it later. i didnt have to do any thing it all fit back where it was, i dont have fan shrouds, i have one good electric fan and i didnt move the engine or anything back. i have rollor rockers and taller valve covers and i didnt have to cut the HVAC box at all so i dont know what thats all about
The evaporator core and condenser are two separate things, I know!
Im saying that for certain people that don't have room up front, running a remote condenser is an option. There's a guy with a 34 Ford that has his under the seats with a small electric fan running it, another with some Lincoln with a condenser under the dash and another elsewhere in the cab. Jeez!
the condenser is like 27' x 16 and it gets verry hot how would that fit under the dash " set the pipe down" you do not mount it in side. i have a 3' intercooler,a/c condenser,rad and a mech fan with a long w pump
I have the hooker type mounts,and 86 corvette serpentine set-up-.I use a 3 core rad .from a 79 camaro,and have the s-10 air condenser in the original spot.I have 2 spal electric fans(pullers)behind the radiator.They are on seperate remote thermostats ,with an extra relay to cut one on when the A/C is on.So Far no problems,although it does,nt get quite as warm here in Germany as it doe,s in some parts of the states.I did have to make custom hoses,and modify the blower box for the valve cover.It,s fairly tight ,but it all works out nicely.This is a first gen. truck by the way.
