Hey all,
Been a bit quite on here but not without progress.

Finally finished the engine harness and connecting it all up, that i tell you was a serious job! You can barely see a cable now and it looks really clean, it was worth it.

I've just got a paid Photobucket account and hopefully they remove all the fuzzy watermarking crap they threw on, standby for all that sh*t to go...

Once removed all put up new pictures for everyone :)

Good work, that looks top notch!

What type of tape did you wrap the harness with?
So if anyone wants to freshen up their wiring harness id happily say to get get some Tesa Tape, it can be found here: https://www.ebay.com.au/p/609605303

If you do play around with any wiring please remember you need to allow your cables to move which avoids tearing and stretching of the conductors. First you need to enclose your cabling with split auto electrical conduit and ensure the cable have a bit of wiggle room in there. Once you have the flex conduit on your loom start wrapping the Tesa Tape along the loom on the angle so i start working your way down the loom. You don't need multiple wraps of this just work your way down the loom overlapping a half or quarter of the previous band. Its aesthetics are fantastic and really give a OEM look and feel to your work.

You can buy water resistant Tesa Tape but be advised it much more rigid to work with obviously, i have used this tape a bit but the felt tape just looks the part.

This is a gen one AC system.

The part number for the entire compressor is: MB946518 (If the above is not available)

So... a bit of a roadblock here.

The old Gen 1 AC system runs the "now illegal to use" R12 refrigerant.

Gen 2 GTO's use the more modern R134A gas.

Whole AC system needs to be changed over due to large and different operating pressures.

Has anyone done this before?

I have done simple R12-R134a conversion kits, charged the system to 85% of its normal R12 capacity and had good results on Gen 1 cars.

Hey Chris,
What do you mean by R12-R134a conversion kits?

I found that the gen 1 ac compressor doesn't get up enough pressure to run R134a gas, so I used a late model Magna compressor and cut the mounts off the old compressor. I'm using hychill minus 30 gas and it runs very cold, even on a 35+ degree day it gets too cold!

In the US it's just a fitting adapter kit. Used on all kinds of cars with success. I used it on a 1992 and it worked great.

Damn your dedication to the time this has taken is unreal!

When you say push fans, you will still have the stock fans right? A push fan alone will not be enough. I tried. A push fan and one stock fan will work though.

Hey DC,
Been building this just a bit longer than you watching this lol... Coming up 11th April 2020 will be 10 years... Im reducing my days at work to 4 in stead of 5 until the car is now running, this will help dramatically. That and im no longer waiting forever on an automotive shop to do their part.

I am installing a 10" main and 9" push style fans which will be mounted on the AC condenser core, pushing through it and the radiator. I have purchased "SPAL" brand fans which come highly recommended.

10" main fan is 677 CFM and the 9" AC fan is 647 CFM. I couldnt find any details on the OEM main fan CFM at the time. Can move to a larger pull main fan if needed.

Just look at the blades, feel the air flow. The stock flows a tons! More than those. Good luck with that though.

I know you will figure it all out.

Appreciate your comments as always, ill definitely do a bit more reading into this. Just thinking about it maybe i can get a hold of a OEM main fan and buy an anemometer to run some tests on it. I believe i have enough room for a 12" main fan on the RHS still. Plan B if the push fans dont work could well be your suggestion.

Just want to say that you are doing amazing work. To see everything so spotless and clean.. Can't wait to see you finish!
Hey mate, thank you the comments. Unfortunately the forums are very quiet these days given social media. I always find the forums a better source of information and reading.

Thank you for following.
