    Well boys. It's been a long, hot, humid year since moving from Alaska to Virginia without AC! Stay tuned for a small rebuild! Probably. I hope

    Finally all the parts got in. Literally $600 at Oreillys and a cup of coffee later. Here we go! 20190614_171509.jpeg 20190614_174612.jpeg

    If y'all haven't heard of or used Kroil before. Getcha some. It's what we use in the oilfield. Industrial strength! Helping me get these 22 year old bolts loose! 20190614_185658.jpeg

    Almost done with the disassembly. Also you guys need to check out Knipex, these channel locks are literally the best 20190614_191659.jpeg 20190614_191924.jpeg

    That's some build up. Also, as soon as I took the evap core out, that line just fell off. Great. Always something. Anyone know what line that's called? The low pressure side of the evaporator core 20190614_192730.jpeg 20190614_193821.jpeg

    Does anyone know why my belt doesn't line up with the pulley? Got the right compressor 20190615_194133.jpeg

    Is there a tensioner or an adjustment bolt to move it?
    Is the belt trying to jump off the pulley?

    Not that I have seen? Maybe. But yeah it walks off of the pulley whenever it cranks over, it rides right there on the edge and it kind of turns the compressor. It's weird because the parts house has 2 different size compressors for that engine. One has a 4.25 diameter pulley and the other is a 4.75 diameter pulley. I have the 4.75 on it now. I don't know of that has anything to do with it?

    Sounds like it does. Maybe check into that.

    That's a monumental job! I think opposite of the evaporator is the condenser if you're still wondering.

    I got a 1/4 iron plate from work, I'm going to build a bracket to push it out an inch I think that'll fix it

    Fabbed up some brackets! The compressor fits and the belt rides perfectly! Throwing a vac pump on and throwing some freon in the system tomorrow morning! 20190621_231125.jpeg
