therling That was my other solution, to fabricate one thatís functionally equivalent. Itís not like a part that needs to look good, it just needs to work.

One side benefit of having a hobby of building scale models is you get to learn about all sorts of different materials, having tools to work with them and figuring out how to make some item from scratch. Like, I have a pretty good idea about which adhesives will work with different kinds of plastics. Iíd been kicking around in my head finding something in the plumbing department just as you have thatíd likely cost a lot less than the actual part and easier to get.

Franklyspeaking I have a similar set of PO's. I found everything but that fitting. Could not purchase it anywhere, so I made one from a PVC reducing tee (3/4x1/2?). I have no idea whether it will work, as I haven't charged the system yet. But it was a nice fit. I used pipe insulation for the pipe. I do a lot of shopping at Lowes.

therling Thatís the one from which I got the illustration and part number, but thanks for posting.

Yeah, I suppose a ďWhy the hell did they do that?Ē thread would probably run pretty long. Iím wondering why they lost the tool kit, but at least they didnít lose the wheel mounting tool.

mboemparts can verify but pretty sure that is the part you're looking for and does look like it came as a separate piece. Try dropping the "A" when Googling part #s as you might find more. If you were working from a Russian EPC they are all auto translated so the part names can't be trusted.

Hate to try your project without a English EPC so thinking rowdie's link will be a life saver. Might start using it myself as the EPC i have now has to run in a WindowsXP simulator and is a PIA (Thanks rowdie!)

Sounds like the PO sure didn't do you any favors when they butchered out your A/C.

Never ran across a "Why The Hell did The Previous Owner Do That?" thread on this forum but if there is one I'm sure it full of horror stories.

BTW - didn't check your part number in the EPC. Assume that is where you got it and is correct.
I don't have access to the EPC since my computers are all Mac, but I have a print copy of the parts microfiches from Germany. My copy shows that part but it isn't numbered, maybe it was included with the hose, who knows. I found the above illustration which has the part number on one of the sites which is a Russian bootleg version, but I have to be careful about the accuracy on some of those sites.

Thanks for that link. I'll give them a call tomorrow and find out if it is in fact the correct part.

My next potential headache is that when someone replaced the compressor, they cut one of the wires coming out of it to about 1/4", with a crimp-on connector hanging by a thread. I have have to take the compressor out and solder a longer piece of wire to that and I hope I don't have to open it up to get to more of the wire inside the unit.

Why do people do stuff like that?

okyoureabeast Buy it from mboemparts . That's the right part.
You can also talk to their customer service line to confirm it 100% with that picture.

CavallinoRed Is this it? Part # seems to match.
