Grab the AC condenser clamp as no longer available, may as well get the pipes. I have one to fit, when I try again this summer to get the AC working.

I had a go at getting the clamp off yesterday as a spare for me but it is well and truly stuck so I'll have to get some fire on the job.

Yep, my old one was a pig to remove! Nice when the bolt just snaps off, didn't happen in my case!

Thankfully have a good one to try again with slightly larger O rings.

I remember you suffering in the cold. I am extremely grateful too you for battling with it and removing it!

On my to do list spring/ summer. Think new front brakes and fluid and AC pipes change, fit your clamp and re-gas hopefully.

Also keep AC compressor. My original leaked, bought used one for 30. Can always in future get old one re-furbished for 100

James.

The celebration I broke was the same I had to persuade it off with my old beaten flat blade... this one is worse and the flat blade did nothing. Needs heat and lots of it to get it to budge.

Could you PM me what bits you wanted again please James?
