    Yeah, humidity here is horrible. I miss Arizona heat, I'll take 120 degree weather over 95 degrees with a heat index of 105 because of humidity. Whenever we have to go anywhere, we take my wife's little Saturn SL2 because it has AC.

    Btw, got the thermostat in, hung the exhaust, and spent 3.5 hours attempting to put the AC coil, pulley, and clutch on... 3 hours of which was just the clutch alone. After I packed up for the night, I rewatched the AC rebuild video and realized I forgot to use the little bearing thing from the AC clutch puller/installer kit I got... Whoops.

    Yeah, it gets hard to think when you've been out there for a while and you're really uncomfortable. Sometime you just need to go inside and "reset" yourself!

    So I finished installing the AC clutch kit. Still not engaging. Stuck a piece of speaker wire in the pigtail just behind the accumulator to try and "trick" the system... Turns out that engages the clutch, which means no freon. Guess I am now forced to retrofit my car to r134 (r152a). Goodbye r12... Also, finished the coolant flush. My good ol' Frakenstein Century now has fresh green coolant.
