    Memorial Day

    In Flanders Fields John McCrae In Flanders fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were...

    Memorial Day

    My heart is with all the veterans and families that experienced losses in all conflicts. We are free to do what we do because of their sacrifice, and the least we can do is show that support. If the flag on my Ranger offends you, F off.

    87 Ranger 2.9 Vacuum issue. I think.

    Hey, what do y'all use to replace the plastic vacuum lines with? Rubber hose? Mine are beyond patching and splicing.

    Yeah, but I also agree about new parts for old vehicles. That evap will be sent to Carlisle Auto Air here for a refurb. They rock! I also saved the copper heater core, as the new aluminum one seems mighty flimsy. OK, beer-30 and attack the garage disaster!!

    87 2.9 Evaporator Trauma

    Did that right after Christmas with the valve cover and oil pan gasket change, and alternator, water pump and PS pump replacement. Had the radiator out, so cleaning it was easy. Sat on the little rolling stool and did the fin straightening trick. Took 1.5 beers. It IS the original condenser...

    Ya think I might get some better airflow out of the new one??? Holy shite, I had no idea that one was so NASTY!!!!

    87 2.9 Evaporator Trauma

    Persuaded the engine yank thingie just a tic further out of the way. Nice and snug! The new rubber cushion on back of it made it a good push to get it in there. Then I took that vacuum thingie off the firewall, and BOOM!!!!! All buttoned up, cuss jar is full! Still need to flush the...

    :icon_confused: Ya know...... maybe the airflow will be stronger without a plugged up evaporator? Doh! 🤪

    87 2.9 Evaporator Trauma

    Great idea!! I'd repaired it long ago, not *really* knowing what I was doing, and replaced all but the evap and condenser when it came out of mothballs 3 years ago, and I think it's an easy system. Condenser would be easy, but man, I had no real clue what changing evap involved. When I got...

    BOOM! POS camera!! :pissedoff: Dropping the inner fender was the thing to do, and some of those screws were still a biatch to get to! And of course, one of the trickiest on the bottom had the screw clip rusted enough so it just spun. Managed to get it secure with vise grips and get that...

    87 2.9 Evaporator Trauma

    That would be great! I've seen comments as crazy as pull the engine to get to it!! :shok: Hoping it goes like my other old ride, an E30 BMW. Most said you HAD to pull the dash out to change the heater core, and when I pulled the steering wheel and drivers seat out and slid under there, it was...

    87 2.9 Evaporator Trauma

    Hmmmm...... wonder if it will come out if I get the cover closest to the engine off? I have the new core, and it doesn't appear to attach to anything, just held in by the housing where the lines pass through.

    87 2.9 Evaporator Trauma

    Yeah, it didn't twist, it just broke off, and what the bleep, it's the original evap and they're not expensive, so new it is. Still hoping for some advice on getting the housing off. Thanks!!
