    I believe the original compressor is bad.

    Your high side pressures are not bad depending on the outside temps. your low side seems to be too high.

    That is why I replaced the expansion valve. I believe it was stuck. The new one does the exact same thing. I can only get a little refrigerant in and it will not pull any more out of a 20 pounder.

    A new compressor fixed the problem. This car has been one problem after another but at this time I may have most of them fixed.Click image for larger version.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you and the car again. It was in the very early stages last time I got to see it. Man, it's even been three years since we all got together at Bruce's Lebanon Indiana show now. Pix sure look spectacular!

    Looking forward to being able to make it to Jonesy's sometime. I may never be able to afford to drive the car all the way but if I still have a truck maybe I could borrow an open trailer to haul the car somewhere.

    All the people that have seen pictures of the car (mainly friends in spacebook) that have seen the car in person say the pictures do not hold a candle to seeing the car in person.

    Haha! We have just the opposite with how pictures lie. People see CC online and don't get how I call her a rough old driver til we meet in person. You've got a lot to be proud of in yours. I just get a kick out of cruising around with one that looks kinda like we all remember them. Rough around the edges. Still really Cool but nothing to break a sweat over where we park her.
