Now my A/C is cold.Clap Took her out today a drove around town. In traffic, red lights and all. With the A/C on max. And the windows up.Thumbs%20Up After all these years messing with everything. And the best I got was cool and humid air.Angry All the time it was the water shut off switch behind the clove box. If anyone with a 78 vette with this problem. Check and make sure the HOT/COLD cable is pressing on the water shutoff switch.  Now I have the A/C fixed, I can't afford the gas to enjoy it.LOL Brown782008-07-11 13:25:46

COOL!!! Cool
 
You mentioned the water shutoff switch behind the glove box. Is that responsible for cutting off coolant from passing through the heater core?
 
I'm glad it worked out for you.

I really don't know. I followed the line out to through the fire wall and over to the A/C and the vacuum line went to this diaphragm on a heater hose. What I found out is this type shutoff switch is only on 78 and 79. There is other shutoff switches for other model years but I don't know where they are hidden.. My A/C kick a$$ now in the low 50* at 2 PM in South Florida Sun.
