a/c is not taken in any freon..after I installed the
valve, its still not taken in freon...the a/c
compressor is on but the low side reads 60psi

You have a blockage in the system. Most likely the accumulator or receiver/ dryer is saturated with moisture. Could also be a bad expansion valve or POA valve if so equipped. HTH. -Jim

Hi Jim, 1 more question...my 86 928s with a 5.0, has a very slow rev off the line, doesnt even break the tires loose...is this normal for a automatic trans car...and if so, can I advance the timing and will it improve, or just leave it alone...if this is the way it supposed to be, then I will leave it...what do you suggest for more power...on the highway, it goes very strong, but on the streets its very sluggish very slow to rev it to higher rpms...thanks Anthony

Hi Anthony, you can advance the ignition timing up to 4 degrees safely. Any more and you'll start having drivability issues. They used to call this "power tuning". Check the centrifugal advance in the distributor for proper operation and adjust up the carburetor, if equipped, to specs as well. HTH. -Jim
