with the front off and seeing the whole engine looks pretty cool.

i dont think it will do anything bad to your arm, just make sure you wash it thoroughly and not leave it on there for a long ass time, :)

And as far as I know, freon is toxic. Did you inhale any of the fumes?

Wow, hadn't seen anyone else take it that far apart! If it makes things easier...

Anyway, if you live to tomorrow, let us know how it goes and what kinds of problems to look out for. Aside from toxic spillage. :)

I thought it was supposed to be rather easy, but I can't find the how-to anywhere (thought otaking did one??).

otaking had it done by a shop when he was in the accident...AWR from insurance, gotta love it! he'll be here tomorrow about noon, so i have 4 hours to take his out, put mine in there, and then put the AWR in mine...think it'll happen.

i think it's actually quite easy, but i had 2 hours before i had to get ready for work, so it was a bit rushed. and i F'd up my right arm this week and can't use it for much, and the left one is pretty much pointless sometimes.

you should come over and help Frank! then cruise over to the wax museum for a few minutes at least. i don't know if adam will be here, but if my arm still sucks, it's gonna be a long day i think.


as far as the freon, i'm not too worried about it. it was a bit hard to breathe for a bit, but i'm an old fart, so that's nothing new. it was pretty cool though, it shot straight in my face like a classic porn shot...couldn't have been better.

ok, fe24 or FU36...whatever it's called....pansy!

looks like everything is fine though, just need to clean the engine off later. my only question seems to be how to get around the AC condensor when doing the swap, that's the only part i can't figure out. manual is no help as of yet, but we'll see when he gets here.
