have an 87 GL wagon, carbed.


I have heard on the EA81 cars they were set up inside the cabin for AC, even if they never came with it installed.  doesnt seem like the same holds true for my EA82, but I was wondering what interior parts were needed.  I see full AC systems all the time at the JY, at least in the motor compartment.


The only think I can think of for a normal system that has to be in the cabin is the evaporator coils and the control switch, but i was wondering if the core setup or ducting was different and unusable. 


Likely a pipe dream, but I have to replace my heater core soon, and I can put the AC stuff in there while Im at it if needed.

In that age range, it's going to take r-12 which is difficult to impossible to get and huge $$$ if you can get it. I know that some AC systems can be altered to run on the r-134 but I'm not sure it's possible with that beastie.
