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
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.
Carter comes and goes. Low compression high mile motor. The quick fix would be to drop in the 360 and be done but... The mind starts dreaming of upping the cubic inches for the Ram and convert to 4x4. I have a harness, intake and TBI to convert it. Not sure how it would work with the cam though.
Guess I enjoy kicking dead horses Lol. Time changes things. Try using a buddy's pcm and see if it runs better. $75-100 even to solve a problem may be worth all your hard work. Junk yards here still have them. Not about your neck of the woods.
