Speaking of A/C... my Air compressor unit itself WORKS, and the heatercore is good and everything, but I think that there is a break in the lines or the heat exchanger (A/C "radiator") and I´m leaking refrigerant. I tried a recharge, and it worked for about a week and then went downhill.

Is it possible to install my own, new lines? How do I test to see where the leak is?

I´d really like to get this working asap.

I think most A/C stuff is pretty easy to replace unless the compressor is really hard to get to. Your leak sounds bad enough that the A/C version of stop leak will probably do no good. I think you can get refrigerant that has red dye in it and then look for the leaks.

Having said all of this the only time I have had it happen is when a coupling came loose. I think it happenned because an alignment problem caused the tires to cup, which further caused vibration and just about everything was shaking loose at that point.

Yep, get the dye trace stuff for your system. I have always used the green stuff. The part that sucks is that sometimes it will be in a place that you can’t see easily. Make sure you inspect every inch of the system. If you know anyone with a freon sniffer it saves a lot of time.

can you be more specific. I tried to test the pressure of the one valve that i found in that area and it has to be the high pressure line it redlined the gauge that came with the recharge kit to about 125 psi
