The Benefits of a Wheels of Time Universal System

A Real Sanden ac compressor and Vintage Air ac evaporator that goes above and beyond.

There are a number of benefits to choosing a Wheels of Time system. First is that Gen II and Gen IV units use a Servo Motor. Servo motors are not simply on-off electric switches found in conventional aftermarket a/c systems. They are variable position solid-state devices used reliably on high-end OEM systems for years. Servo motors designed into properly designed systems can deliver much greater air-door travel. This has allowed us to design our Gen-II & Gen-IV ac evaporator units with tremendous air volume increases. Conventional vacuum operated air doors simply do not open far enough to flow as much air as these units. Servo’s are not cheap. Nor are they just a bolt-in change. That’s why other companies have only reluctantly begun offering them, and why they tried for years to discourage customers from wanting a servo system. When combined with our exclusive solid-state circuit board controls the Gen II & IV servo’s can give you the most infinite adjustments for “Just Right Temperatures” in any weather or location.

The units also come with the choice of either separate coils or a single combined coils system. One of the earliest goals of the Vintage Air evaporators was compact size for early model street rods.  They developed the single “combined” cooling and heating coils to achieve minimum unit size. Over the years they have refined the designs of these Gen II evaporators and they have become the industry leader for compact units. The Gen II combined coil design has performed extremely well for over thirty years and have had almost no failures when properly installed with adequate engine coolant. The separate cooling and heating coils used in our Gen IV evaporator require a larger ac evaporator case, making them a perfect choice for larger and “later” model cars. Using separate larger coils does provide more cooling and heating capacity.

The Gen IV also has some other impressive features. In addition to separate coils and a temperature blend air door, the Gen IV also incorporates a microprocessor (or ECU).This “Electronic Brain” not only controls the door servos, it also allows us to monitor the internal A/C coil temperature without a thermostat and capillary tube, eliminating the need for a traditional thermostat and capillary tube. Eliminating the thermostat gives you complete system operation with just three controls, similar to new auto systems.

1) A Vintage Air Evaporator, Control & Vents
2) A “real” Sanden Compressor
