    One of the most favorite cars I ever owned, back in the early '90's was a '66 Dart 2 door sedan with exactly one option, the 225 S6 instead of the base 170. Vinyl floor, 3 on the tree, dog dishes, radio delete, etc........(and only 31,000 miles)........ Miss that car.

    1996 Dakota with a torque monster (not) 3.9L V-6 and automatic owned since 1998. Now demoted to winter duty

    Interesting diagnosis for the AC issue. It appears that the Aeroquip stainless braided nylon line is permeating the R134. When Chuck hit it with a black light the lines lit up end to end. He is going to contact Aeroquip today, at least we know the issue is not with the fittings or seals.........

    B3R is just a little busy



    My Vette is somewhere in the middle of it. The transmission arrived for the Chevy, so once that is finished I'll swap it with the Dodge so they can repair the AC lines.

    You'd think the braided line for A/C would be barrier hose, unless they sent you the wrong stuff. Darn tiny R134a molecules

    My bet is the wrong style hose.

    That is my thought too -- anxious to hear what Aeroquip told B3R.

    That was some expensive hose and special fittings, normal -AN fittings will not work with the AC hose.

    Spoke with Chuck last week about the hoses. He said he has not heard anything back from Aeroquip....

    So the options are to warranty claim the hoses with Summit and replace them and "hope" they work, or replace them with standard rubber since they are out of sight under the inner fender.

    They will take the Dodge in as soon as the Vette transmission work is finished. The Stage III transmission was installed by Chuck said it felt a little loose (but all gear are hitting).

    Sure hope you have her sorted before Norwalk. Looking forward to finally meeting you! Even Ricky Erwin is coming in from Colorado with his Mexican Super Bee clone Elvira.
