Re: {Chrysler 300} A/C Tools and Tests



Time and 'Tech' march on.
In 1992, when I bought my 55 C300 from Mrs. Bracci in MA, it came with a ton of those Tech film strips and records, as Mr. Bracci ran Dante Motors in Franklin, MA as a dealership.  It even included the projector and record player to watch them on.  During the cold winter months of non-car time in MA, I set up my huge VHS Video Camera and an optics device that I purchased in order to make VHS recordings on 'modern' media for my convenience.  Still have the tapes, and even a VCR or two in case I ever need to watch them again.  Now it's a moot point, as I can see them anytime at this link.  I highly recommend one of the films called "Why fins?".  It's a salesman's training film showing how a prospect should be educated on the advantage provided by fins on late 50's Chrysler products-  "reducing the effects of crosswinds by up to 30%"  Pretty funny.
The more technical ones are indeed informative.

James and all-

The link below takes you to mymopar.com and a page with all kinds of service bulletins from the 40’s through 70’s. There is one covering the 1964 AC systems. That should help you unless you insist on re-engineering and re-manufacturing the system you have. You can also find a 1960 Bulletin covering the Alternator. It confirms its use on AC equipped 1960 Imperials. Most of the service bulletins come with film strip videos featuring “Tech.” I’ve read and watched all of these, still cannot remember much.

James-these should help you mightily.

Now that I drove the 300K back from out of town, 79 miles, and nothing fell off the rebuilt front end 😊 …I am moving on to the A/C.

 

I want to run the compressor tests, the ones that are to be done without any R12 in the system. I have rebuilt a compressor using all NOS parts. I do want to check it out, however.

 

The factory manual uses a set of gauges that uses a three gauges manifold. I can only find units with two.

 

Has anyone figured out or seen a procedure to do the Service Manual Test using a modern two-gauge manifold unit?

 

Thanks, James
