Hand Time to check your AC chaps now as the warm weather approaches.

Finally got round to having the evaporator swapped out to get that nice dehidrated air circulate the cabin and keep my gonads cool Grin

This is what was causing the issue Surprised



I knew the AC was defunct when I bought the car and despite there being several references in the history to 'AC Inop - suspect evaporator' I refused to dive straight in adopting a 'Trigger's Broom' approach and tried a new condensor, receiver/dryer and various other 'O' rings first Rolling Eyes. True I got some short term AC but after two weeks back to square one - even UKs finest gas refillers (Kwik Fit) could never detect the leak. You only want to do the evaporator once as it's a BIG job what

Anyway, this is what went in a £76 evaporator and a £29 expansion valve:



Followed by some detailed algebra to work out the fitting costs. Some places want four figures to supply/fit Surprised but as ever I got a very good deal with my trusted Indy thumbsup

You'd be surprised its not that big - Its only 350mmx155mmx70mm and weights about 1Kg. Same one carried over into the 993 Thumb

Frank is much enjoying his Jubilee Zings... you should cathc up with him. he is putting narrow body trailing arms on the rear so he can fit some deep dish.. but keeping all parts so he can go back to standard.. will be an intersting look.

Have you bought a 993?


Cheers

Jack

Jack - I'm waiting for Frank to put some pics up on the site. I intend taking a run down to one of the Surrey meets over this summer.

Ref 993 - I'm going off the idea and despite proving a point I could get one for under £30k I'm not sure the duffle coat suits me. I'm getting tempted by Italian stock Rolling Eyes The ex-track 360 on eBay is tempting but we cant agree on a price and I'd run it as the daily driver over summer Grin The ex Silverstone car would have been better but that's sold

He might get up to a thousand in a 993. 997 or 991 is the way to go Grin the silver surfer must be worth gazillions, would buy a nice turbo or GTS Thumb

I'm just in 'negotiations' to buy a Cayenne diesel to go along side it Rolling Eyes If it falls through I'll task OPC to find me one

Chief - pathetic I know given that you've done more miles just moving the Red Baron in and out of the garage Grin

I don't normally venture out of the 993 Forum, but I thought I would stick my head into this thread to drop this photo of a 964 Jubilee I have had in my workshop for the last few weeks getting a full glass-out respray and all the minor bodywork issues sorted.

Look at that freshly painted Viola.... Just look at it Very Happy
