ive just redone all my ac componets evap, condensor, and comp and everything else i used a POA eliminator (since i coulne find orig POA) only remanufuctered part i bought was the compresor which i got at autozone.
Took this baby down to the AC shop and had it retro fitted for 134a and charged it up using 2.25lbs of 134a everything went well no leaks. and dam on the highway it wont pull down past about 54 degrees i remember
my old r12 system that baby would pull 40 and lower. i hear of other people doing such as i and their systems freezes them out the evap doenst seem to be freezing up but i do notice it leaks alot of water down
need help could it be the reman comp i do hear it kinda whine at a certain rpm HELP

ive spent round 1200 bucks on all the new parts and im ready to trow it all out and get me a vintage air system but how i want to keep it original ive had the car for 17 years me and my dad bought it in a wrecking yard and restored it ourselves.

I don't know what the original r-12 charge was for your car, but you are supposed to install 80% of the capacity when a conversion to r-134a is done. In my opinion, 54 degree air on a 100 degree day is not too bad. I've been told that 60% of the cooling capacity is to be expected.

Did you buy the bypass stv valve from Old Air? You may try giving them a call to help in trouble shooting your problem. Their number is (817) 531-2665.
