Re: Autozone rebuilt carb fail

Had a similar situation.....

Turned out. Carb mount not true, so was sucking air

Filed mounting surfaces flat......all ok....

Maybe a thicker gasket might solve your situation

Just my 2 cents

Re: Air Conditioning Issues on a 91 Pickup

Does your drier have a sight glass.....if it does it should be clear

Sounds like your system IS UNDER SERVICED...is there a leak....


PRESSURE on lo side should be about 30 if using R12 freon

Something seems ......not right....

Just my 2 cents

Re: Diagnostic Help?

I went the duramax route for a while

Found out filtration was too small....can't remember actual number

Eventually clogged.....had to remove....cobbled together an old OEM from parts.....no further problems
