Looking good, I checked your thread to see if you really did pull the entire a/c out and you REALLY DID!
I bet your evap being as dirty as it was has something to do with the a/c not working....
I plan on cleaning/replacing mine this year also.
Good job on the vacuum gauge! with the cleaned injectors and you paying attention to the gauge more you will def see some better mpgs!
1990 HF
Rebuilt D15b6 trying to keep her as stock as possible
Still get 50+ mpgs with over 750,000 miles on her.
Going to take her to 1,000,000 and maybe more!

@VanriJ, i just weighed everything (dont mind the disassembled compressor, i put everything in the bucket) came out to 34 lbs minus the weight of the container. btw i didnt put in the AC bracket.
also the scale doesn't recognizes the container weight so its about 34lbs minus the weight of the container + the weight of the AC bracket.
Hopefully i didnt forget anything else to add in.

Thanks! yeah the gauge actually helps a lot. especially when i think im going easy on the throttle when actually im not.

hoping i can beat 40mpg soon. its like a never ending goal lol. My gf thinks im crazy that im so obsessed with achieving more MPG. :rofl:

actually, i take it back. i used our air pump for our camping mattress and blew water out of lines + condenser + evaporator. there was quite a bit of water from me pressure washing everything last night at the car wash, so ill reweigh everything again to get a more accurate weight.

stocking my new parts already. just a new drier + expansion valve.

alright, blew out any last water i could find. reweighed everything, this time including the ac bracket, it adds up to 36lbs.
so the AC unit adds approximately a total weight of 36lbs.
Image

Also went to my favorite japanese dollar store and found something that i might be able to use when reinstalling my ac components.
Image
going to add these to the vents to help seal the air from escaping the ac box + fan box.
the material seems about the same as oem.

Nice! Thanks for posting the weight. I have seen numbers posted all they way up to 65lbs lol. Its still a good bit of weight but at this point I would rather take a functional AC. Great work, keep it up. :-)b

got the ac running yesterday. so pumped about it that the first thing i did when i woke up was used the car to go gym (normally we take my gf's car) showed off the ac coldness however she wasnt impressed. lol
Image
about 4pm today, the crx was toasting inside. took out the digital thermometer (kitchen thermometer, not sure if this works as well as the automotive thermometer)
car was 112 and climbing.
Image
turned on the ac the temperature started dropping quick. about one minute or so into it, it dropped to 62.
Image
it started slowing down so i stepped on the gas pedal and it got down to 55.
Image
drove the crx around town and it got down to 48!! stoked about how cold it gets. extremely happy about it.
Image
guess we wont be needing to take the gf car on long trips anymore!!!

That a/c post is exciting. I will need to replace everything on my rex, nothing is there, literally.

I did just fix the daily's (my grandfather's 05 silverado) but that was the oh so common blower resistor.

Did you happen to take any photos of anything that was out of the norm? or did it just go like buttah?

pretty much everything went in as it should without any hiccups. the only "hard" part was figuring out where/how some of the lines went but even then its not all too bad. i should have taken more pics but was really nervous about the whole thing working.

AC is a must living in souther california! i dont know how some of you rex owners do it in TX or AZ without them!!! :dizzy:

also just installed my new led bulb for my vacuum/boost guage. looks awesome compared to the incandescent bulb.
definitely brighter than my cluster. will swap out the bulbs in the cluster for led later on. easier to read at night and looks cool!

Yeah, I'm new to south florida. probably biggest reason the cars living in the garage lol.

AZ is hot! I would not want to be there unless I could work somewhere with an attached air conditioned garage lol

Great job on the A/C. I can relate to the g/f story. My wife (then g/f) was similar in that the minor victories I was excited about became eyes rolling when I told her. Too funny. Keep up the good work. :-)b

hehe

You do get used to the heat in AZ. There is no humidity which is nice (for the most part). But when it hits 110-115, everyone runs for cover or the pool. And if you are working outside, I imagine that can get brutal.

My old boss told me when he lived in AZ, they had to heat the pool.. something to do with avoiding cardiac arrest ;)

I've found that ladies couldn't care less about my car.. idk why ;) yours on the other hand.. hey, let's trade so I can get a date haha

Most girls think my 89 crx si is "cute" :yell: You do NOT call a man's car cute. I nicknamed mine the gokart.

decided to put in some led since the vac guage was a lot brighter than the whole cluster. took about 30 minutes to clean/replace bulb/ flip the polarity. definitely easier to read at night. but i feel like i've ruined its originality with the leds... anyways here it is.
Image
Need to figure out a way to help brighten the needles. wondering if i should paint the needles in a fluorescent orange to help.
also went to the grocery store later that night and found this note on my window. lol
i've had many people wanting to buy my car for a RIDICULOUS low amount.

hard to tell form angle/shadow but it definitely looks 10x better. going to do the other side tomorrow and finish it up with the rear.

got carried away and did my fogs
