All the parts for the AC system I got from Rock Auto. The expansion valve and drier are pretty much universal parts for those years and also the O ring kit is universal. And yes I did convert the system to R134. I also downloaded the factory manual which has a very detailed section on the HVAC System on these cars. And always change the Valve Cores.

Parts I used rebuilding AC system

Drier- FOUR SEASONS 33575
Expansion Valve- FOUR SEASONS 39491
O Ring Kit- FOUR SEASONS 26764
AC compressor- click

I did have to put the pulley from my old compressor on to the new one since they where different sizes. The pulley is held on by about 6 little bolts

Waiting for my Wife in the grocery store for about 15 minutes in 98 degree Houston heat with the AC on and the temp stays right in the middle.

If my temp gauge gets anywhere near the location yours is in I start checkin stuff. That is why I have an aftermarket Coolant Temp gauge

On every 6G Galant I've had the temp gauge always reads just a fraction under half at operating temp. I believe the gauge is wired that way so the needle doesn't fluctuate so much, and that it gives the illusion that it warms up quick and is stable. Ie, let's say at 190-220F it's going to read the exact same on the stock temp gauge.

My gauge always stays in the middle no matter what temperature it is outside. Also the fan dose not come on until the temp gauge starts moving past the middle. It could be that have the temp senor on the thermostat housing instead of the radiator...

Mine and my two sons are also located on the Thermostat housing. None of ours ever hit the middle until the temps start getting to high. It could be that the needle is a little off on that gauge

Quoting thomcasey:

Same here, Thom. I set my CEL to come of at 206 through ECMlink instead of having a separate gauge. On really hot days when sitting in traffic is starts to flicker a bit when getting close to that temp. As I get back up to speed and get some air flowing through the radiator it will turn back off. It's worked nicely for me like this for years now.
