ahh special trick :lol: ..

na i took the hoses of when i did the bbm conversion because the heater core was leaking..

tomorrow i still got to put the heater box back in(its a pain to get to those little nuts behind the engine :roll: ),re solder a few wires i cut :lol:
and the plastic airhose manifold on the heater box broke so i hope the one on the ef is ok?.
and the fun part of getting the heater hoses back on lol...
i should have the car back on the road tomorrow arvo or thursday??

then i need another ef tx valve and high/low pressure switch, another aircon re-gas :roll: and fingers crossed it wont give me anymore trouble..

oh and the mrs will be happy to have a heater again...

Sounds like a balanced partnership Troy, the heater to warm the missus up and the aircon to cool you down! LOL
I'm sure that between Ben and yourself, finding a Tx valve and switch won't be too difficult...or costly. LOL
He was playing around with EF bits to-day, just follow his fingerprints...

That's good news.
Will you be mingling with us on Friday night or will you just sit in the car with the engine and heater on grinning like a Cheshire cat? LOL
Cheers,

I want to know what the TX valve does and in what way the EA one differs from the EF/EL one..

I hate pulling dashes out... :-(

i would say if you dont want to pull your dash out it would be easier to get custom lines made up!
i tried to use a mix of factory parts and it did work! but i could not get the ef tx valve to seal properly on the ea evaporator..

so i took the step and pulled the dash out because the heater core was stuffed aswell..
otherwise i should have just got the custom lines made up...

and i wouldnt try brazing the pipes on the evaporator as the heat might cause the brass or lead on the core to melt and then you will need to pull the dash out to change that...

thanks ben
i got the heater hoses on ok..
i have scratches all over my hands and arms from forcing my arms between the bbm manifold and body lol..
i found it easier to fit the heater hoses by removing the air intake,aircon lines.and washer bottle.

ben i would recommend fixing your heater problem before fixing the aircon.
that way you can remove your aircon lines to get to the heater hoses?
that way you dont have to lay under the car to get the hoses off...

i used ea heater hoses as my engine still has the ea engine pipe.
the funny part is it only took 2 1/2 hours to pull everything out including the heater box..
and it then took 7 hours to put everything back together including the heater hoses,re-solder some of the extra wires added from the bbm conversion that i had to cut :lol:

its now been fitted with a new tx valve ect..
i got it re-gassed today and its all working a treat..
the heater is hot as hell and the aircon is as cold as ice.. 8-)

as long as the aircon dont leak its something that i dont want to do again! :lol:
