  1. Was that enough of a drop to make the car comfortable on a hot day?
  2. It was once owned by Kennedy?
  3. It may well be but that will probably only be a starting point as getting a good color match will require matching a sample from your car.
  4. I would say definitely possible. My 1980 has an electric trunk release in the glove box that it came with and i added a Viper remote for the door locks and the trunk release
  5. We might as long as you post pictures of the progress on the 56😉
  6. Expansion valve appears to be working and with the old A6 compressor all worked well. Do you know the temperature coming out of the vents?
  7. What i do in these situations is remove the gas door and take it to a paint supplier to do a custom color match. Due to time and the elements, even if you had the correct code, new paint would probably not match very well. Best of luck
  8. Yes i did. I am about read to go back to a rebuilt A6. Very frustrated. Wither difference in high to low side pressures, I would think this S6 should cool quite well.
  9. My 1980 Avanti had the original A6 compressor. It was converted years ago to R-134a. It cooled well but it was leaking around the front seal. I replaced it with an S6 from Old Air products. It was supposed to be a direct replacement for the original and it did bolt right up. But now, it does not seem to cool near as well as the other regardless of the amount of 134a. It pulls the low side down to almost zero and the high side goes to around 225 PSIG. I would normally expect to see 20-30 pSIG on the low side but if i try to charge it more to achieve that, the high side may hit close to 300 PSIG. Any ideas? Thanks
  10. I believe that both used Girling but that is about all that is common, the brand
  11. Counter clockwise and it is only stupid if you already know the answer
