VIR ELIMINATOR KIT
This listing is for a new VIR Eliminator/Upgrade kit for all 1973*-76 GM Cars with factory air-conditioning (exc Corvette/Cadillac).
WHY DO I NEED TO ELIMINATE MY VIR?
Unlike nearly every other General Motors designed systems, VIRs cannot be calibrated differently from the factory setting.
As a result, VIR equipped cars cannot be adequately converted to 134a.
Our eliminator kit is a simple, cost-effective alternative to using R12 or a poorly converted 134a system by updating the system to the newer accumulator clutch cycling system that GM converted to in 1977 and continues to use today.
WILL I NEED TO MODIFY MY CAR OR PARTS?
You will be splicing the cycling switch harness into the compressor power wire. Assuming all components in the system are functional, simply remove the VIR and install this kit. Unlike some similar kits, this kit will not require modification to the car's original hoses.
ON SOME VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH ENGINE COMPARTMENT SUPPORT BRACKETS, THE BRACES MAY NEED TO BE MODIFIED OR REMOVED IN ORDER TO CLEAR THE NEWLY INSTALLED ACCUMULATOR.
WILL I NEED TO BUY ANYTHING ELSE?
This kit includes everything necessary to replace the VIR, converting the system to a clutch-cycling system. Assuming all components in the system are functional, simply remove the VIR and install this kit.
*Some 1973 and early 1974 models use a POA Valve instead of a VIR. Please double check your application before ordering.
