    I have a 87 truck 22r engine converted to R134
    My ac all of a sudden stopped working. I thought maybe I had a leek but nope. I charged the low pressure to 55lbs and still no cold. My compressor kicked on once I added Freon but now won’t come on at all
    Any ideas?

    Just buy new. You dont want to throw parts that have just been laying around on your ac system. Or you might get compressor failer.

    Change all the components, including the drier & change all the o=rings.
    You can buy a sniffer to check for leaks,works great & not to pricy.

    Ok I’ll look for a sniffer. What would I look for “ac leak sniffer”
    I’ll look for a complete kit and replace all the o-rings. Would u look for a ac kit or just get a o-ring kit (box with 30 different size o-rings)
