Upgrading 84 C10 to Newer Factory A/C
« on: October 19, 2018, 01:41:36 PM »
I have a 84 c10 non air and installing a 5.3 ls and has anyone ever tried to install the AC components as evaporator box and controls off say a 2000 or newer truck into a 84? I like the looks of just the dryer/accumalator on the fire wall and not the big box outside. Just a idea running through my head and using the ls 5.3 compressor lines and condenser would be practical install of customizing all that crap  problem maybe is if there is enough room under dash to fit the newer unit and modifying for controls? Iím not to worried about wiring etc  just a thought if anybody else has a wild imagination

I had a friend put the AC components IN the factory AC box but you will never get the AC module behind that dash.  It is HUGE.  Using the lines isn't the issue if you are using the factory LS AC location you will need to modify the frame mount to work to give enough clearance on it.
