AC time

Hey guys I've known from experience with my first OBS truck that we've got killer AC but the last and my current truck has not had it at all due to A bad compressor on the last one and this truck from what I've been told from the last owner there's a hole in the condenser sooooo..... I'm thinking about what I'm going to need to get it back right to the way it should be and thinking from what I've heard is i need a new receiver/dryer, condenser, compressor and a recharge of freon. Anything else I need possibly? Anyone dealt with the entire HVAC system at one time? Thanks in advance.

While you are at it, do the Ranger shut off valve mod to your heater hoses. It will stop the hot antifreeze from flowing through the heater core when the MAX A/C position is selected.

It is worth it.

Also check the white vacuum line under the hood by the HVAC box. They are known to rot and cause vacuum leaks. If that line leaks, the MAX A/C position will not draw air from inside the cab. That white line closes off the outside air vent.
