I worked really hard today snapping pics left and right...upside down and right side up.
Randy came over today and we (ok, he) hit the work in front of the project.
Since the engine compartment was painted, there were many wires and harnesses to put back in place. AC stuff needs to go back, and a drive train needs to go back in. Oh boy...there'* a lot of beer, I mean work in our future.
A stray wire was found and we believe it is a test point wire
The wire harness really stands out against that white...looks sooo nice
Beer break...the mug is mine... (MOS...you like?)
The fuel lines went in and got mounted to the frame
Oh...I'm upside down, but the pic is right side up
The lines are in...
This would be so much quicker with AIR TOOLS!
Of course my pressure switch was messing up and I had to stop takin pics to put a new one on. (ps..don't try and take one apart to work on it.
Another BEER break... the neighbor came over to see how things were going and collect another beer. He was showing Randy the fine points of visiting...get a beer
And leave with the beer 2 seconds later
Since he mowed the lawn last week I'll let a beer or two slide
Heres Randy after the beer break
I wanted to put the engine cover on top of his head and call the project done...but .... lol
When working on a project you always need a reference vehicle
Maybe both at the same time
Here we came up against our first real problem
Here'* a close up of what Randy'* looking at
The R12 evaporator core have different threads than the R134a system that needs to go in. I'm working my way into convincing Randy to swap out the evap core.
FSM says disconnect power steering and move out of the way (Check!)
and to remove rear exhaust manifold shield (Check!)
then do this and do that to gain access (Check!)
cut the air box in half to get old one out (WHAT??? cut it in half?...) They even put a line on it that says "Cut here"
So the project hit it'* first real snag...I'm sure we'll overcome it quickly.
