    I found an old thread where you posted pics about cabin air filter kit. Would it be possible for you to scan the installation instructions and email to me?

    Thanks for the reps! Happy to pass the info along to save somebody else the unpleasant time of figuring out the dimensions or going through the trial and error I've been doing (it's definitely NOT the fun part of getting new stuff)!

    Funny how guys love derailing a thread to argue about something personal. Thanks for helping get things back on track. :-)

    No, I haven't ever used one. They are designed to handle the temp and pressure of the high side. I have seen them used before, i've just never installed one personally. My rule of thumb is to replace the affected parts in a catastrophic failure. They are getting harder to find, I wanted to use one a few years ago and the packaging of it in the car didn't permit it's use.

    Do you ever install those little dedicated filters in the high side, post-compressor? Can the filter material handle the pre-condenser temperatures?

    From a purely theoretical point-of-view, can you think of a reason not to add a receiver/drier to a Ford system? Double the desiccant, double the filtration. Could almost charge using the "sight-glass" method.

    As you can see from my sig line in forum posts, I'm always thinking about additional filtration!

    Not that I'm going to rush right out and actually do this, 'cause my system works reeeeel cold as it is, but I can't see any downside other than having to use more R-134 and a bit more oil.

    Whaddia' think
