When you work on cars because you love them, you end up doing weird things with your weekends. For example, I went out to a farm yard last weekend and picked up 2 seized flathead engines, over 60 years old, that were pulled from some old farm implements - paying over $300 for them, including lunch and gas.
Since that time, I've been playing nursemaid to them, spraying them down withWD40, pouring my special mixture of ATF and KLEEN-FLO in each cylinder - hoping and praying that deamon of rust hasn't welded the rings to the cylinder walls!
After that, I got a start on the AC system for the Camaro. Like any good automotive engineer, I read through the instructions, then followed them precisely, wanting to be sure everything was done properly.
Of course we all know where that can lead.....exactly....
I ended up having to take it apart again in order to get it mounted!
Once I undid the fist 30 minutes ( no charge ;)), the condenser was installed
Followed by the dryer and assorted bracketry
I'm sure glad I learned one thing as an older adult : winters spent
working in the shop, building show cars sure beats the HELL
out of sliding downhill bouncing off the snow on my ass!!
