AC to onboard air

Has anyone converted their Sammy AC unit to an onboard air pump? Any writeups on the subject? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Go to this site. On Board Air
This site tells you everything. Just go to the bottom of the left column where it says projects.

Re: AC to onboard air

That's a good link. I was waiting on RRo to come out with a kit since I had no idea what would be involved. Although I have power steering I think I could make it work. Can you take off the a/c condensor (I think that is what it is called, the a/c radiator part) and the electric fan?

Re: AC to onboard air

You can take everything off but the compressor. Everything else will just be added weight.

Re: AC to onboard air

I'm not sure about carbed Zukes (should be the same I think) but on my '90 Samurai I kept the electric fan (for AC) in its original spot, and It still comes on when needed. I noticed mine will kick on about mid-through airing up.
It also kicks on when sitting at idle for awhile. So I recommend putting this fan back in after you remove all the othe AC stuff. It's worth the little bit of extra cooling. IMO. Another plus is using a self securing chuck on the valve-stem when airing up. It's obvious I know but I never see it mentioned in the drawings and schematic links in this thread. (which are awesome writeups by the way. The process is really easy. I used both the previously listed links for my Ac to onboard air conversion) It's for sure worth converting. Good Luck...
