Re: WANTED: Upholstery services

Speegle's did a nice job for a fair price, installing a new convertible top on my niece's car.

Would definitely use them again.

Re: Diagnosing bad AC compressor

Back yard. :mrgreen: I'm no tree hugging hippie, but that is just wrong and irresponsible. RE Michael will take a full one and give you back an empty one - but you must have an HVAC license... Can't understand why the powers that be would want to add a roadblock to the responsible recovery/recyclin...

Re: Diagnosing bad AC compressor

I don't see how I could have anything other than a known good charge, already.

It worked great. It hasn't leaked.

What am I missing?

System may be full of air. Need to evacuate the system, pull a vacuum and properly charge it and go from there.
Are you referring to my issue?

If so, how could my system go from full of good refrigerant to fill of pressurized air?

Re: What Did You Do to Your Hotrod Today?

On mine, I put the bolts into the lathe and drilled/tapped the bolt heads for a small eyelet. Thus, I can hang plumb bobs from all four corners of the car. Thus, I can lay out a nice chassis centerline. Thus, I can set up my thrust angle with high precision - as well as (relatively) easily get my st...

Re: What Did You Do to Your Hotrod Today?

It's pressed into a well in the floor pan above there. The grey bit that the top of your line is touching is the exterior part of it. Hard to understand the arrangement precisely without seeing it firsthand, but it looks pretty similar to my car; which has location pins that are part of the chassis...

Can you not just (carefully) slice thru the sleeve as shown to relieve the hoop strength, allowing it to essentially fall right off?

Re: 60 Gal Air Compressor

As long as your new garage has two different circuits supplying 110V through the shop, you can either buy or make a "Y transition" that merges two separate legs of 110V into 220V. It's not difficult.

If that helps...

Diagnosing bad AC compressor

I'm not an AC guru, but I think I've diagnosed my AC compressor as bad. Would like other's thoughts: 2002 Lexus IS300, 140k miles, owned it a couple years, AC always worked great This spring, I noted warm air coming out the vents. AC clutch is definitely engaging and compressor is turning, but no st...

CV Boot Clamps

I bought a used car; and both inboard CV joints are slinging grease out of the boot. The boots are not torn - the grease is leaking past the clamp on the big end of the CV. What's weird, is the clamps themselves look nicely positioned, and they are tight. :wtf: Anyway, I was gonna try installing a n...

Those butterflies are an actual performance improvement on that motor.
