Air Conditioner (A/C) Conversion Kit, R-12 - R-134
This A/C Conversion kit will completely and correctly upgrade your fox body 1984-85-86 Mustang SVO R-12 system to the newer R-134A system. It includes a new Mustang compressor, lines, condenser, all hardware and instructions to upgrade, as well as a stock length V-belt. Converts stock Mustang A/C Components to aftermarket, which means a more efficient compressor, bracketry, and new refrigerant hoses for use with the less expensive R-134A refrigerant.
Problems with Mustang A/C systems can come from various sources-leaks, parts failure, electrical gremlins, and thermal issues. Any one of these - and quite often a combination of - can cause the A/C system to blow warm air. Typically, the fix is to replace the offending part or reseal the leak and then recharge the system. Unfortunately, with R-12 refrigerant prices being what they are, even a simple $20 O-ring repair will require several hours labor and more than $200 in R-12.
The compressor included with this kit is a Sanden unit that has an 8-rib pulley. The design of the brackets included in this kit aligns the 8-rib pulley so that six ribs line up exactly with the existing pulleys and there are no belt alignment issues.
Many people sought to convert their Mustang R-12 systems to R134a simply because the latter is cheaper, readily available, and can be bought without a license. Unfortunately, when R134a is introduced into a stock R-12 system with nothing more than a few new seals and some oil (the popular R134a conversion kits you see at the parts store), the A/C system isn't as efficient and vent-outlet temperatures rise. The best way to repair your A/C system and properly convert to R134a is to replace the components that hinder the R134a conversion, namely the condenser and the compressor.
Hose Wizard's R134a conversion kit for SVO Mustangs is the perfect choice for this repair. The easy-to-install kit includes a high-flow R134a condenser, a Sanden rotary compressor, hoses, mounting brackets, and R134a pressure switches.
The components of this A/C Conversion kit are designed to work as a kit and are not available separately. OEM Ford parts WILL NOT interchange with these 134a conversion kits!

Professional installation and service are a requirement for warranty. A shop invoice must be provided itemizing install, system flush, and oil type/amount added. Any time an A/C compressor is replaced a new orifice tube/liquid line and accumulator must be installed as well.
I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
