but with how nice carter was looking i would have probably been looking into a different swap than a normal 360. what about possibly swapping in a new hemi or something cooler?

Ha ha...I wish. Too much money for me.

they are becoming more affordable since they have been around for a while. plus it would make it more fuel efficient. i know sometimes people look at the short term but in the long term you may get the money back in fuel saved. plus it would make it more daily drive able if you wanted something like that.

Put a new compressor in some time back but even though it was cold from the vents, it never really seemed to blow out very strong.  So I've put it off long enough and decided to tackle it by putting an access panel to clean out the AC box.It cost me nothing but time since I had the tools, screws and a spare sheet of metal. Afterwards it blew signicantly more. A test drive during the heat of the day will let me know if it 100% good to go. I sat in the driveway with it on and windows up for about 20 minutes and it seemed ok.  I still want to run a thicker gauge wire from the blower to the battery.  Noah told me that helps his a lot. Well here's some pics which says it all.

that is a lot of debris getting in there. have you sealed up the air intakes with screen to prevent any more leaves from getting in?

are you wanting to upgrade the blower motor wire? you could possibly install a solid state relay. STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS RY330K is a solid state relay used in 96-00 caravans town and countries and voyagers. they should be able to power the fan motor perfectly by just wiring it in like a normal relay. you could also just run the output from the blower motor resister to the blower motor through the firewall right by the resister. should save the power from having to travel through all that wire. the solid state relay is still the best option. takes all the load off the stock a/c heater control components.

if you do decide to try getting the relays used they are on usually on the passenger side of the drivers side frame rail. they can be a bit of a pain to get at but will likely get it way cheaper from a auto recycler than the $20-30 they go for new.

27 years of leaves in there. Cleaned the fins too with a wire brush and sprayed some bleach cleaner in there.  I park under a tree and so I probably will get a lot of leaves in there.  But with only 4 screws to clean it out, it will just be part of regular maintenance now. I was thinking of rigging a cabin filter like newer vehicles. 

I would like to do the power wire like you described but pictures are worth a 1000 words.  Getting hard to post pics on here. Hit me up on Facebook. Richard Garza. Look for this pic

i am almost certain i have seen people seal up the holes under the cowl with window screen and silicone or something like that to keep leaves from getting in. it also keeps leaves out of the vent on the driver side. if the a/c intake was that bad the vent on the drivers side is probably full.

either option i suggested is pretty easy. i would probably go for the solid state relay option which is pretty easy. the solid state relay works identical to a normal relay but doesn't mine being used at lower voltages. normal relays generally chatter when they start running below a certain voltage. do you know how many Richard Garza there seem to be in Texas? lol

SixGun

What do you mean?  There's only one...lol.  I cleaned the driver's side way back when by taking the vent apart.  Lotsa crap on that side too.
