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

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

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.

We can cross one more problem off our list. The options we had were to install the 90 compressor on the 97 L67 and use all of the original 90 AC components, modify the 90 evap core to accept the 97 lines, or change the evap core and use all of the 97 AC components. When the cars are broken down as far as they are, replacing the evap core is a rather easy job. It wouldn't be a very fun job in a complete car.

Some modifications were required in order for the 97 evap core to fit properly. This was easily done with a Dremel tool. The outlet tube was bent into a different shape so plastic was removed to accomidate the different shape.

Problem solved



Jim, as we get closer to completion, we can decide on a time to get together. As far as the place, we can decide that in advance. Perhaps in the other NE meet thread.
