Just charged up my A/C system on the 5kcstq last Friday and it was putting
out 48 deg F with outside temp at 90 deg.  Although it might have a fancy
front end controller, the heater and A/C design goes back to 1978.  If your
vacuum solenoids hold vacuum and the heater flap controller motor is not
stripped, and the recirc vacuum motor hasn't broken off its mounts, the
system will work just fine.  Wonder how many owners really have had failed
electronics and not mechanical stuff.
