MC-9 air conditioning
« on: July 20, 2006, 02:42:30 PM »
Can anyone direct me to Welsh Industries, a company that converts air conditioning systems?  Anyone got a line on an affordable condensor for an MC-9?  Thanks!

Lamar Welch amd Kevin are great people who do super a/c work.  Just had my MC96A3 converted from r134 to r22, along with steel reinforced hoses and a few special valves.  She blows cold, and IF it ever leaks down the stuff if relatively cheap compared to the forerunners. Welch gets a great deal of the bus a/c business in the metro ATL area.  Good luck!

Two problems actually.  First, the bus is still running R-12.  Second, the system leaks.  I blew a line near the compressor, and the condensor leaks too.  I want to convert it to R-134.

I read a post recently where the owner was changing to R-22. It is supposed to be a lot cheaper than 134. Don't remember what he had to do to make the conversion.
