Velkommen!

Visited DK quite a few times - wonderful country (and Ive actually been to Esbjerg)!

There is a small section on the A/C in the shop manual. The pictures are not that great but may give you some help.

I've been adding the factory A/C components to a car that did not originally have A/C so may be able to give you some advice. Is there a specific part you are having trouble with?
Hose connections, cables, compressor mount?

I should be able to get a picture or will try and answer with what I know although I do not have mine completely installed yet.

Eric

Hi Eric
if you have visit Esbjerg, you must have something to do with off-shore bussines.

My t-bird just arrived a week ago from Texas and i hope it will be on the road again in the spring.
There is 13 boxes with mischelaneus parts, among them the a/c
Ive had quite a few us cars ,but never one with a/c, so I`m totally lost in that departement.

Eric:
It looks like you had some new hoses made to replace the factory originals. Any suggestions of how or where to get them made. Might save me a lot of time looking.

Henning, if you have not looked in the Technical Resource Library for airconditioning information and instructions you should. The AC Installation manual is there for the '58-'60 Squarebirds. Here is the link you are looking for. It might be a big help to you in the installation of that AC system. The cover says for the '58, but it also says this. Air-Conditioning Installation Instructions For 1960 Thunderbirds.

The main link to the Technical Resource Library is always right below my signature element..

Henning - we were in Esbjerg just as tourists. Last time we were in DK we tried to visit as may places as possible. Went to the maritime museum there as a family member was in the Coast Guard.
We visited family (Krestensen's) in Hundstrup as well as Holsterboro, Aalborg, Aarhus, Tivoli in Copenhagen, Bilund (Lego!), Odense, Ribe and many other places. A small bed and breakfast in Silkeboro was one of my favorites but the most interesting was a family members new wind power station.

Here are a few links to some previous posts dealing with Air Conditioning - hopefully they will help.

Nyles - the hoses are new and from Classic Auto Air in Tampa Fl. They are expensive......
