air cond on 83 LTD

The a/c on my LTD needs to be converted to the newer gas but I wan't to change the BIG old school pump to something a bit more modern and compact.

Any ideas on price for the change to new gas and will any newer pump work??

Re: air cond on 83 LTD

In most cases all you will have to change will be the hoses & tx valve.
The compressor normally* just gets emptied & refilled with the appropriate comp oil.
Once this is done its blown out with nitrogen, vac'ed & recharged.
The newer pumps should fit mate afterall the body dimensions are close to the same, if anything a modified bracket could be source for next to bugger all.. As per pump prices look at a wreckers mate they tend to be expensive
