Vintage Air Distributor

Postby sonoraed » Sat Apr 30, 2016 7:30 pm

I am a stocking distributor for Vintage Air (don't have everything but carry a lot of stuff) and have been installing and fixing A/C since the early 70's and have installed a VA Gen IV in my 79 J10 (see fasteddie in build section)
I also fabricate lines and hoses,aluminum,steel,stainless,standard barrier hose and reduced barrier,female o-ring fitting and male insert o-ring fittings fab'd,if your into SS teflon I have Gotta Show products $$$,if you want fittings that match the color of your truck we can powdercoat (color sample needed)
Can install A/C, but I specialize in Hot Rods and Muscle Cars and have backlog of usually 3-6 months.
If you need help, call me, but do your homework first and know the proper name of the parts or problem your talking about otherwise its way too frustrating for both of us
I can usually meet or beat Vintage Air price's from other vendors!

Can you make the lines to use the jeep a.c. With a Chevy compressor?

Lots of guys, myself included, swap in a 5.3 and are using the 5.3 a.c. compressor. But no one name replacement lines that will work with that compressors and the jeep's coils.

is the compressor a Denso 10S20F? if so you will need adapters to convert the suction/discarge to #8/10 male o-ring,are you using the oem Jeep evap and condenser? what year is your Jeep, lots of ways to do the hoses so need to know how you want to do it!

I don't know what type of compressor. It is what ever is stock on a 2000 Yukon xl.

Do they make conversion adapters like that?

I need to get moving on my conversion. Not FSJ, but it tows my FSJ.

1975 GMC C35 1 ton dually with a 8.1L 496ci big block. I have the stock compressor for that engine. The truck is an A/C truck and it appears everything is there.

OK that compressor is a Denso 10S20F,Vintage doesn't have adapters,but you can google Denso 10S20F adapter and get loads of hits,they were on ebay for $58.95,next you need to decide where the service valve will be to charge the a/c, on my J10 I used two straight 8/10 fittings with 134a ports at the compressor and could access between the frame/fender wheel,next suction side to the evap at the fire wall,for the discharge to condenser inlet (topside) you need to tell me how you want to do it,as I said in my original post I will help but you need to tell what you want to do

Those adapters only seem to change from the denso to oring fittings. But the stock jeep has flare fittings right?

I'll put the charge ports wherever I can fit them.

So eBay adapter to go from denso to flare.

Then you have the charge port fittings? Well those convert to flare?

It would it be better to just get all new lines? If so how much would be each?

Their catalog doesn't seem to be very friendly when looking up fittings. Are they cheaper than other suppliers?

I use various vendors such as coldhose etc...... Been doing A/C work since the mid 70's but I'm always looking for cheaper alternatives as I live in Florida so A/C is a must.

I can appreciate that, for price can't beat UAC esp if your buying in bulk, they have a warehouse in Florida but the Dallas warehouse is the biggest,quality is very good considering most parts are made in China,next I use GPD in Macon, Ga, and Omega/Santech in Dallas for Tubes N Hoses stuff Birds Radiator in Waxahatchie, Tx (know I spelled it wrong but too lazy to look it up) and then there's Ranshu in Reno massive compressor inventory but not cheap and good old Vintage Air which is expensive but quality is the best in the aftermarket.
I have bought some fabrication parts from a guy in Florida named Mike but can't remember the company name Mobile A/C Parts I think!

Vintage Air GenIV Magnum #67400-VUZ universal evap only kit as of 06-01-2018 $605.00 plus freight to you from San Antonio, TX, if you are close to me (Sonora, Ca. central Calif.) I usually have them in stock. due to the many different types don't carry controls.
The Gen IV fits Full Size Jeeps like it was made especially for them,on 86 and newer FSJ can use the oem control head with mods, older FSJ's with individual round gauges is do able but haven't come up with something great, thinking maybe VA square control where the heater controls used to be,let me know if I can help!
