I've been lurking, and I about made a comment on a couple of other threads, but passed. I have been actively engaging in an exercise in automotive insanity. I have been pursuing an early-80s Alfa as a daily driver. All the feels from when cars had no ABS and traction control and airbags and stuff. But not the fear of crushing my Porsche when some textaholic crashes into me. Oh, and much less chance of going to jail. I cannot saeem to keep my right foot from getting really heavy when I'm driving my 3.2. I can't figure out why.

Heh heh.

I am working on an 81 Alfa 2000 in Oil City, PA, as you remember from an OT post six months ago.

Owner loves this car second only to his 67 Datsun 2000.

He has about seven eclectic whips. Not a one worth big $.

All fun to work on.

Ignore the buttnuggets.

I can mail you a few things that will make your life much easier.
They are uber super super duper custom lines, that *I* built for my own use. They allow you to do the unthinkable.


You can flush the whole system AT ONCE!!!1111!!!!

YES! You put flush juice into the #12 hose that connects to the compressor, and you get yucky flush juice out of the #8 hose that connects to the compressor, all while flushing all lines, condensers, evaporator...

They replace the dryer and the expansion valve.

They kick butt. no one in the history of automotive A/C has EVER made such things, but I have. Patent pending, waiting for a Florida targa to test them before I present them to the world...

Pardon as I butt into brain surgery going on here... This is not marathon expedition similar to 14's journey. This will be sleek hit-n-run thread... with a few pics thrown in for Ron's education.

Mike, thanks for offer to mail stuff... U-the-man. Alas, don't want to inconvenience you (or be tempted to steal your idea.) Local boat shop has been reconnoitered for bits needed and it's all there. Agreed on "dumbazz." Took risk and lost---so it goes. Flush through whole system! GREAT... butts no f'in way! Am WANTING to break system up in sections so I can be SURE no fine is left unflushed. (I thought about whole system flush. Had visions of cakes of crud getting hung up... and coming loose when system is charged. Then... wondering why AC is not running with Rono temps. Appreciate short cut recommend but can't find comfort in it at this moment.

Bob's flush recommend = mineral spirits... we all supporters of that for this? Any follow up injection after the MS Bob? Alcohol? Hendricks? (Seems like MS would leave residue.)

Griff... yeah... u sit back with spiritus in hand on this one and am gona show you how it's done (Don't retire quite yet... might need to call on real wisdom.)

Flushing is not a gold standard; using half your brain you know you have to inspect the work in process. And, its going to take you 10 hours minimum to do it right.
Since you have to drop the hoses below gravity.... you might as well replace them all and avoid the anxiety of wondering if you did it thoroughly.

Reverse flush? Yeah, I"m sure you enjoy that. "Pulsating-forward/reverse" machines with filters came out eons ago. You might find one on ebay (cough), our might be smart and just replace all the hoses; unless you enjoy posting new threads here every year.

^^^ Replace hoses. Who's turning this into major polar expedition?---Getting idea you take sinister pleasure seeing me grunt these AC projects out. Change hoses | I prefer seppuku. Since you offered a sliver of space for me to escape the replace-hose-program... and with due respect to u as Masterofchill, am taking escape route.

Air compressor. Super! With Porsche parts and tools taking over limited condo storage space... anyone want my girlfriend? She's smart, industrious, naughty, and probably drives with more balls than the lot of us. Old pic but you get idea. (Shipping not included.)

If that young lady is helping you with this latest project figure 2 weeks to complete it.

Understand:
1) You have to "drop" several of the hoses so they are pointing toward gravity otherwise that liquid flush (whatever you use) is going sit in the drapes.
The time it takes you to disconnect, drop and put them back is going to be pretty close to the time it takes to drop in a new hose set.
2) Your concerned about residual debris after flushing and the only way you are going to be 100% sure you got it all is borescope, Ronnie will suggest a used colonscope on on Craigslist.
3) Unless you are going to get your gallons of flush for free, plus the device to push it in (again Ronnie has it all), you are adding up bucks; less the borescope.

We have done dozens of complete flushes. Believe me, this will be your best and most memorable expedition...... so, go for it !
However, remember PP is not kind to 100 page threads.

Karl, Griff is right. Replace the hoses. It'll be cheaper and easier than flushing. Easier because unlike the interior surfaces of the heat exchangers, the hoses are not smooth, and have a lot of places for the black death to hide, hoping to wait and kill another compressor. You rolled the dice and came up snake eyes. So stop dicking around, get a new compressor and new lines, follow Charlie's advice (he knows more than all of us put together, NTTAWWT) , and get it put back together.

Karl, I hear that Franklin NJ is the world's capitol for things like intestinal scopes and suck-n-flush devices! You might try calling around up thata' way! Also check the Canton Ohio Craig's List and ANYWHERE in Florida!!!

How about doing the rear cond and front cond as a test to see how much comes out and the short hose from drier to front cond . .... I don't know but the stuff in the hoses could be attached so it really doesn't move with the flow????

Setting aside to-flush-or-not-to-flush for time being...

Contrary to plan, ACveeergine has pulled back-plate for potential enlightenment. Interesting internals. Plastic strips included. Aprox 1/8" wide, 1/32" thick. Appears to be single strand that's been chopped up going through ginsucompresso. Jammed in reeds in some places. Some reeds sit open with no plastic jammers. Yeah... all looks good to me. Gona put it back together... reinstall plastic strips and look for real problem.

Karl, just wipe some of the black stuff off on your pant leg (or Bob's, if he is around), re-assemble with tub & tile caulk, and you'll be fines!

Charliemon says new hose... surly it's the way to go. Pardon hesitation here but my flush-fixated mindset has to get used to replacement plan. "Drape" situation... yeah... understood. Am thinking of "point down" for reverse flush at low pressure line at evap. Hmmmm... yeah. I get it.
