I've just got my 78 Kingswood wagon and the road and pulled out one of these units from a HZ sedan parts car I got. I'm a fridge by trade so I am keen to give it a crack would just love to have a manual a long the way! Thanks!


Which system are you referring to ? The factory system with the Frigidaire compressor or the dealer-fitted unit.

Dr Terry


Sorry I didn't realise you replied so quickly thanks! It's the Air International / dealer fitted type.

Sadly there is no 'manual' of any type for the HX/HZ/WB Air International system.

The best you will get is if somebody has kept a copy of the original fitting instructions. I think that would be a very rare find.

Thankyou. I was hoping to get a copy of what Crowe was talking about on page 1. I think it's what you're talking about.

I missed that post, sounds to be exactly what you need.

I would't mind a copy if that possible. It's been many years since I fitted one of those.

Hi was just reading this post as I’m restoring my HJ. It has the dealer fitted ac evaporator under the dash in the centre butting up with the centre console. Can I use this with updated compressor and equipment as I have updated the whole engine bay to a sbc.

Yes, that sounds like the old Smiths unit which Nasco/GM P&A used to sell for the HJ/HX series.

Probably a good idea to fit a new TX valve to suit the later type gas.

Dr Terry, do you remember what the setup was for the actual A/C switch on the dash? I am just keen to know if the dealers just put a switch somewhere or how exactly the whole setup worked.

I hope you've been well!

Thanks, Ben :)

You are really stretching the 'Grey Matter' now.

I seem to remember it involved the slider control for the LH footwell vent (near the driver's knee).

Because the whole LH air intake unit was effectively replaced by the A/C evaporator, the LH control no longer did anything. I think the used it to operate a lever & a switch. It also had a blue plastic label added to it.
