OH man, something I look forward to doing; renovating the AC.

As aforementioned in another thread, when putting the AC box back together, I would block, or severely limit, the amount of airflow on that far right side vent.

Otherwise, 90% of the air flow will go through that vent and hardly anything out the center/left vents.

I'd replace:

blower motor, expansion valve, switches, and drier.  Definitely test the evap for leaks.  If it's suspect, I'd get a new one if they're available???

Some metal parts have been blasted and powder coated, what a difference that makes!







Again something else.
