Cheers! That'll make the next beer a lot tastier.

Thanks.

Hi all,

I've got a '68 Ghia coupe that I did the Hella H4 conversion to about a year ago. All has been well until recently the low beam on the passenger side went out. I've changed the bulb and it ...

Got it and no, I didn't pull a vacuum as I assumed that opening the system up to change the condenser would have evacuated the system. See what happens when I assume?! I'll find a post on the proper p ...

I'll check out the Red Tek. How much will I need to refill the system?

As to the question about vaccum lines, no, I did not remove any. Is there a vaccum line to remove on the C-pillar near the pre ...

Hi Dave,

This is Brian with the other white '91 in Athens. Sorry to hear about the water pump problems. Loosing coolant without the leak could be the inner seals leaking into the cylinder chamber. ...

Thanks all!! I'll get to testing as suggested. I think swapping out the ignition switch sounds like a good starting point and good way to eliminate that. I'll update once as I go.

Thanks again.
