Hey guys, first time asking a question on this forum, im new to this site.

I've got an old fj55 76', it has A/C but it needs to be re-gased, having A/C dosen't bother me and i heard that you can turn the A/C unit into a compressor?

Does anyone know if it is possible and if so how and what do i need to do it?

Cheers!

Syn

Wait for the experts on this but it sounds like merely a matter of disconnecting the refrigerant system, hook up an air filter to the inlet side and a tyre hose to the outlet .... or is that too good to be true??

Just designed a honda engine powered A/C compressor yesterday, will pump my 35" tyres in a few seconds.
Are still in the development stages, and have to cast a pretty bellhousing, but will be available on the market in a few months.
