"I can live with the instruments being optional as on the 451, but the lack of standard paddle shifters on the DCT cars is hard to fathom, when they were standard with every 451 passion. Big step backwards IMHO."

Last visit to the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum, Madison, GA - Nov 16 - 18, 2012

Posted on September 27, 2012 at 3:02pm 0 Comments

As some of you may be aware, this unique museum will be closing for good in a few months, with the entire collection being sold off.  The microcar-minicar group on Yahoo! is organizing a final museum visit:

Yes we are going back one last time. Nov 16-18 2012. Come bring your car and take pics of it there before the places closes. We will spend all three days visiting the museum. And getting one last look at the cars. Of course we will do some drives in the country side…

Hi John!  Welcome to COSMOS.  Are there any groups you don't belong to now?  ;-)

So then, as I understand it, the low pressure port is below the high pressure port.  I have already found them, I just need to know which one to use.  So, I guess you inject the refrigerant into the low pressure port that is below the one on top as you look down with the front body panel off.  I was just looking at Evilution and his instructions are backwards.    http://www.evilution.co.uk/801.  Thanks, Bill. (please reply)

jwight:  It's been a long time since I've made contact with you or been in any of the forums.  Hope you are doing well.  QUESTION:  I need to recharge my A/C.  Is the recharge fitting the cap on the top or the one below it?  As I remember, the refrigerant is injected into the low side, which is the larger of the 2 tubes, but it is so hard to see.  It appears to me the larger of the tubes is the lower one.  Bill in K.C.
