I would like to run 240v to my garage. The plan is to install a sub-panel, inside the house where the A/C #8 wire exits.

Will a sub-panel support the A/C compressor and 240v to the garage?

Note: Currently the detached garage is fed by a 30A fuse (120v), ran through buried conduit.

P.S. I did not think that I could justify starting a new thread when, seemingly, such a similar one already existed. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Two problems, the A/C needs its own circuit and there is no neutral in the circuit either. You are going to need to run a new circuit.

I updated the image from inside the panel ... http://imgur.com/IL4EAqA

My fuse diagram from when the AC was added, shows this 25A circuit for A/C and Furnace. The 'Range' used to be a an electric dryer, before it was used for the A/C ... http://imgur.com/9sZfgci
