Oh. In the interest of full disclosure, I also upgraded the stall with the empty coolant jug pillow mod. Ah. Not really ah, this sucks. I do realize I can just swap compressors now, but it did give an unenthusiastic pssst when I bumped the low side Schrader valve Don't know how much charge it has. Hey I could snap an empty AC Pro can with gauge on it, huh? Anyway, that valve on the GT is leaky and it has always worked as long as I kept it charged. Been low enough that the compressor doesn't start for about a year. I could swap on my Bullits and woohoo, have GT as DD with tint and 100K less miles instead. Huh.

Kept an even keel about it so far but I pinged both elbows and some knuckles today. Left elbow one might be overly tender a few days, both have had it on the funny bone before. No grumpin yet though. Sweat started getting in my eyes and that will do it so good time to knock off.

Alright, good for you, on the healing...

That is fantastic, that they say you're all healed. All I can say is massage scars regularly. My sick aunt... she had three spoonfuls of broth last Wednesday. No food or drink since, only morphine. Still hanging on. Amazing strong constitution. Poor thing.

Just a note.. you probably already know,,a 55 and 56 frame horns are the same (except rear spring hangers ),,but a 57 is different,,it is a square box type ,,55 and 56 are channel shape so the bumpers wont bolt up,,

That way, each year, it depreciated in value, so the tax went down. What a joke the whole thing was/is. My wife and I moved to Northern, Illinois ( you know the state with the "Squeeky Clean" government) and we don't have that up here, but they stick you other ways.

Wrestled the elusive snap ring out of my A/C pulley hub, and heres what I wanted to see... nothing terribly unusual-



Backside of the pulley, same thing-




Wait, what was that dark ring next to it?



Oh! That would be the end of the (somewhat intermittent) roller bearing cage and snap ring. Which flopped open when I was setting up the puller. When they say those bearings don't last long, they mean it.

So... I have an easy turning compressor which seems like I can feel a compression stroke on, lightly. Once per rev, I feel it pump. Thats on system with charge. The 02 model compressor (off the car) feels same but with less resistance, and I hear it puff into the hose.

Can anyone say if that sounds normal?

I don't want to get too excited yet but I suspect once I swap front end parts of the compressor over, I will be back in business. Those bearing balls had to exit through the clutch. No idea why I made it home with that but yep refried bearing. Maybe 135K GM stuff will last longer if I get it together right.

Think I forgot to post work lunch pics. Shot bull instead. Distractions ahoy. No stunning revalations today but I will catch up after shower and chow if I can.

I'd say the system is still fine as it's still sealed.
Get the new bearing/pulley installed and give er a rip snort to find out.


I did a bit of rip snort on the way to cruise nite tonight....and on the way back of course.


Saw a nice Mopar when I was there....I believe these will get more popular soon....they really got a great look.

Yes you should be able to hear the pump as you turn the shaft,,i didnt see the shim ,it might not have had any some dont,,if the air gap is close you should not need them.
