I just finished a day of oil change,fixing the waste gate hose, fuel filter changes (all three), and I put in a brass ball valve in the heater line between the block and the fire wall.





My thinking here is the same as I found out on my F350. Stop the water flow before it comes into the cab and not after, like the Mono valve on my 85' 300d. I had warm....hot air flow all the time and now it is ambient.
I also refilled the A/C with R34 and when the compressor came on it was a horriable sound, then it locked up and the belt started burning. I have not worked on an A/C system in some time. Would this be the compressor or just the clutch??

sounds like the compressor................
I know that this car had the system changed over from R12 TO R134 in the past. Will this make a differance in the compressor that I use? Here are the only two that I found on line................Your Parts Search Returned 1 Part(s)

You can use any compressor you wish. If you bump from R12 to R134, you'll need to flush and vacuum the system first.
