The rebuilt suction hose was installed today. The AC system was then evacuated and recharged with R12 freon. Runs nice and cold now !!
Lots of tools and AC components from Ebay!! The latest is the AC compressor for the ’88 XJ. Checking it for freon leaks. with another very useful tool. The ’86 XJ is getting a new hose soon. Was able to use the freon pump, also from Ebay !! Good deals on good tools make this project work !!!
