Did you have a vacuum drawn on the system after replacing the components? Also, did you flush the hoses, condenser, and evaporator?

I did pull 30 inches vac,waited two hours ,it held so I charged it.as far as flushing I tore old comp apart no black stuff,I don't have a way to flush.tonite I'll head and pull orifice to see it it's got stuff in it.AutoZone is ordering another kit and I've decided to replace this noise comp.

Autozone has an A/C flush loaner tool, that and a $25 bottle of flush solvent are cheap insurance, especially on Fords.
