86 Dealer installed AC with newer motor

Postby Wesman07 » Wed Apr 26, 2017 7:06 pm

Hey guys, I'm new here. I am also new to the world of A/C and Ill admit that I am out of my element. I come to this forum for expect advice.

I have an 86 f150 with dealer installed a/c. About six years ago I updated the old carbed I6 for a fuel injected I6. I believe the compressor was an HR980, but that went out with the old motor. Now I am trying to retro fit this system.

What I know:

1) The old motor was v belt, The new is serpentine
2) There are two soft lines coming out of the firewall with a single green wire. both lines have a hose clamp at the ends
3) The system has been open for about six years

What I need to know:

1) What do I need to do to clean out the old system?
2) What parts should I get?
3) Should I get another HR980? Or switch to a fs6?
