  1. THANK YOU SO MUCH I give credit to David Allen- but his video is about merely cleaning a jammed vent mechanism. His video is HERE A new unit is around $70.99 +S&H at Rock Auto manufactured by A1 Cardone. The magnet wire is very delicate, and coated to insulate. You must remove this to solder- I used emory cloth. Thanks for watching, please give it a Thumbs Judgement.
  2. WELCOME TO THE REATTA FORUM Please follow the advice in this link when deciding on purchasing a Reatta. Good luck!
  3. How to flush and bleed Reatta brakes Master Cylinder Reservoir filling instructions (TEVES systems) (Thanks to ROJ for info)
  4. Depending on your location (not mentioned in your Signature line of Profile settings) most car part stores carry various lengths of pre flared and fitted line. There are no longer "premade parts" like that just for a 1990 Buick Reatta. Clip out the old, get the fittings off. By the line, tape up the ends to keep clean. Snake it over, or run it a more acceptable route, attach and bleed. Zip tie line securely. http://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-traction-control/brake-line?filters=50002 Please put your car year, any options, and your general location here: http://forums.aaca.org/settings/signature/ WELCOME TO THE FORUM

  6. I'm not trying to "get around" a component. I'm attempting to see if parts can be made, that's all. I simply asked if and why it didn't have a thermocouple- like I've seen in other systems. I'm not trying to "work around" or reengineer anything. That- would be way beyond my pay grade. Calm down.
  7. I just filled out their contact form with info. If I hear anything- I'll post it ASAP.

  9. Did you check this place? http://www.durexindustries.com They advertise "made to order" and "automotive".
  10. THEY ALL PLAY NICE- WHEN THEY KNOW THEIR ABOUT TO GET YANKED OUT BY THE HAIR AND THROWN TO THE CURB. DON'T FALL FOR THAT SWEET TALK. IT WILL SENSE WHEN YOU'RE VUNERABLE- AND LEAVE YOU STRANDED SOMEWHERE.
  11. This is why I asked why can't our systems just used a clipped on thermocouple to the evaporator like many others use. Easy and cheap, easy access to evaporator, and the original plug comes from the BCM any way, right? Would that work?
  12. If 2seater can make a Flow Bench, TEVES accumulator tester- why not a "Thermistor tester"? Tubing, fittings, an evaporator, etc.- maybe a gutted junkyard minifridge? A NEW one is $60 at Wal*Mart, used even cheaper. All the needed components- just smaller. It'd be cool to tinker with
  13. Like PC duster (an excellent AC refrigerant) when sprayed as a gas it is basically room temperature- but invert the can and spray- and super cold liquid shoots out, and the can gets icy too. The duster could be substituted in experiments for thermistors, too? It's way cheaper than R12 or 134a, but just as good as R12 and way better than 134a. Thank you for the explanation.
