A friend charged the AC in my van, my hands are useless. The high pressure port leaks. It seems to be some GM bastardized check valve instead of a standard Schrader valve port. It can't be replaced with a standard pressurized system valve core replacement tool. The entire system must be emptied, high side fitting replaced (it is available as a service item), then pumped down and refilled. I may just try to make a very short threaded bolt and see if a copper crush washer will work as a seal. The standard high side plastic cap will not seal against the pressure.
I Found that the driver side rear door will not open. It feels like it is locked. It worked fine a few days ago.
There is always something wrong with vehicles of any kind or brand, old or new. Many parts are made by the lowest price bidder in China. Don't even talk to me about the parts or systems with just a POS design...
EDIT: I found some metal seal caps at AliExpress. I will see if they fit etc. I am surprised nobody makes a replacement/repair port that uses a standard Schrader valve that threads into the leaking port possibly with a retainer clip that mates with the existing outer quick release. The leaking ball valve port seems to be a very common problem. It seals once then has to be replaced. Another POS design, -just like the Ford AC quick connects...
I worked on a Ford Explorer AC for a lady because she couldn't afford to take it in and pay a shop. After re-filling the refrigerant with a can from the Auto Parts store, it was discovered the valve was leaking. I ended up just leaving the hose from the can attached to keep it sealed lol. It worked great and I betcha to this day that hose is still on there!

Well after fixing my tire (or so I thought) I am stranded 18 miles away from home at a friends house while she is at work. I have someone coming to pick me up so I will be spending the better half of the day running around getting a new tire and putting it on the rim

Gaseous fueled engines with long exhaust runs are prone to having moisture run back into the engine if not drained off regularly. The building was built around this generator. It's not coming out. It's staying where it's at if I can help it.
Around here everything goes out for bid. If they wanted it removed likely the cheapest guy would pull it and scrap it. Sad to say but that's what happens to these beautiful machines. Hard to tell but that's not a small machine, it's about the size of a large sofa. That valve spring across is the size of my middle finger. This is from the era of big and heavy. I do have a smaller unit I saved from the same district, it's a cute little 4 cylinder flat head water cooled comentator start 2 kW unit. It's buried here somewhere. These do have condensate traps but someone needs to drain them, regularly. O'well on to the next job.
Changed the tracks on a medium sized back hoe. Little Kubota toy. Not hard, just aggravating.
Pull the grease fittings and caps, use the front grader blade and a chunk of 6x6 to push the track and tensioner back to relax it. Then use the bucket to nudge it off, while letting the front blade push down and lift the track hoe. Then use the bucket to pick it up and tossnit on a truck. Use the bucket to place the new one, and just walk the machine in to its new shoe.
Took an hour to do both. Made four hundred fifty bucks for an hour of play time in a back hoe. Love it!!
Saw the bill for the new treads, nearly 12k for the pair. OUCH!!

We have all the other scooter related "what did you" topics so I thought this one would be fun. Let's see what you did/ worked on. Doesn't matter if it's yard work, a new deck or what you did at your job. What did you work on?
As some of you may know I work on standby back up generators. Everything from stuff in rv vehicles to units that back up hospitals. Today was just a little 100 quart oil change on a 750kw, 2000 amp service. What's that mean? I love loud low rpm diesels, V12 - 1200hp @ 1800 rpm! Just another day at work.
that looks so dope to work on its like a smaller version of this diesel i worked on a mega yacht .
