    Hello Roy!

    We finally found the valve to input some more freon this afternoon and all it needed was a can. Everything working well, now.

    How many pounds of pressure is that one can good for? One can brings my
    Z28 up to just over the minimum.

    The ace mechanic we had put it in (I never could find that valve because it was
    under the washer jar reservoir), but now that I know where it is, I can do it myself. Anyway, he said it could have held a little more, but felt it wasn't worth opening another can because of the small amount needed.

    Did you read where they were mandating another Chjenge to the Refigerant
    used in Automobiles. Some one decided that the R-134a was also polluting
    too much and have come up with a revised formulation, HFO1234yf. GM
    plans to start using it in soem of their 2013 Models. They thought about
    using CO2 for a while but it requires verty high head pressures so it
    was not selected. IT does make a nice refigerant though.

    teh Refigerant is expensive, about $3000 for a 20 LB tank and it
    requires a totaly NEW recharge and recovery unit for the shop at $2000
    to $3000

    This is when it's nice to have a 5 gallon jug of freon with a on/off valve
    in it. But who among us could afford to buy that jug and keep it in the
    garage for the next time?

    Yes, that was mentioned in one of the emails that I get from GM. Maybe a
    year or so ago.

    GM plans to start using it in soem of their 2013 Models.

    They should also mention that R134 is incompatible with 1234 as R12 is incompatible with 134...This of course means that there will be yet
    another form of recharging nipples.

    They thought about using CO2 for a while but it requires verty high
    head pressures so it was not selected. IT does make a nice refigerant though.

    Isn't that the stuff that the environmentalists are freaking about causing global warming? Guess they never thought about looking at the source.

    teh Refigerant is expensive, about $3000 for a 20 LB tank and it
    requires a totaly NEW recharge and recovery unit for the shop at
    $2000 to $3000

    They'll do anything to make it impossible for the independent garage to
    service AC...

    Not I, sayeth the New Orleans native. (-:

    I priced a barrel for my 1911A1 Colt .45 a short while ago and it's $180!
    I was looking for an extra barrel without groves so I can fire my shotgun loads
    with it.

    It'd have to be chambered for a 3"er...that means about 3 3/8" chamber
    size, then smooth bore for the rest of the barrel. Or are you thinking
    of a 'special' shot shell? Next would be the 'rim' on the shot shell. Not exactly 45 clip friendly.

    Why not just buy some snake shot ammo for it?

    I know its a Taurus, but they already sell a revolver chambered (The
    Judge) for what you're asking a .45 to do.

    The rounds I have are Colt .45 Auto casings, but instead of a 230 grain FMJ slug, have what you'd call snake shot. That would ruined a groved barrel if too many rounds were fired through it.

    Taurus maufactured a Colt SAA look-alike I was interested in, but no one seems to have them in stock with a 7" barrel. It wasn't a Colt, so I didn't strian myself loooking.

    I don't think a PTFC (teflon) case of snakeshot will do any more harm to
    the barrel than your copper jacketed FMJs...

    There are better quality SAAs on the market than Taurus' model...Uberti is
    a better known leader in the SAA market.
