Wow. Lotta clearance but where's the wear? Chamfers on the crank look even. Is the side of the bearing that's touching supposed to be that much thicker?

Obviously I've never been inside a 360 before.

Interesting theory.

I doubt it needs to be even that strong. Seems to be if the u-bolts aren't holding things together it doesn't matter what bolt is in there.

That's why it was a stoopid law. Everything from PCB's on down has the same label. The it's become meaningless.

What did you use to replace the bushing crumbs in the tailgate motor? That's what mine looked like.

Shouldn't need a spring but to get it in but think of it like a screw. See how if you hold it and turn it one direction it'll "screw" in?

Now turn it the other way when you push it in. This will...

Do you have the sight glass in the high pressure line and if so do you see any bubbles? I've read that 134 will have bubbles in a properly charged system but no explanation about why.

Or maybe one...

Sounds good. I missed where it was already converted to 134, presumably the system was flushed at that time and filled with PAG oil.

Yawn.

So many "concepts" that never came to fruition.

I agree. Everything I've read says you don't want to mix PAG with the mineral oil used with R12.

But it's your vehicle.

Seems like a good deal to me if you're looking for a project.

I'd put a nut on the inside with the bolt if you can get to it. Maybe with a washer with a big hole to capture an o-ring that's a little thicker than the washer.

I wouldn't bother with a tap. Just...

One reason I didn't like the VA parts was the fit to the dash but it looks like you took care of that.

But you can't use 134 with the mineral oil that was used with R12. Need to have the system flushed.

Where'd you get those grommets? I'm having trouble finding them. At least ones that don't cost ten bones each.

How come did you make those slots rather than just holes for the hoses?
