CarQuest Premium Compressor?

CarQuest Premium Compressor?

Postby AstroOafAdventurer [OP] » May 24th 2021, 1:24pm

Has anyone here used this compressor?
Looking around over the weekend I found it on AA and bought one while there picking up a couple other things.
Then this morning I was looking and they have a kit and I had a 20% coupon so total was like $190

Figured it's time to bump up AC on the to do list.

Kit arrived yesterday, not sure where the expansion valve goes though. In all the diagrams I've been hunting through I hadn't seen this part before.
Still need to figure out exactly what front AC only consists of to return to. Being a conversion van, I believe it came with front only AC and the upfitter added an aftermarket rear heat/AC unit. I found the install directions for the unit, but it appears to just add on but the directions and pics aren't very clear.
If anyone has info on cargo/front AC systems I'd appreciate a share. It looks like there should be some cannister mounted just off the accumulator which I can't seem to find in diagrams.
I'm going to try and get by a JY and have a look see and hope I can nail down what's needed or can be 80 sixed.

The expansion valve is for factory rear A/C.
