    Accurate Powder's answer for a 4895 substitute is Acc 2495. I have NOT tried it. Just giving a suggestion to try in these times of low supply.

    Turns out Corona Virus threat is all horsecrap.

    I look at it this way. There's at least some possibility, albeit small, that a lot of these theorists may be right and we're taking advantage of a bad situation and using it do a hard reboot on the economy, killing the Fed and bringing back the gold std or something similar. Maybe we're getting...

    It's a lot of trouble but I resize/decap on the rockchucker, the tumble the lube off, then measure/trim. Only at this point do I move to the RL550 for priming to completion.

    If you were to completely restart your career...

    I was 35 in 1996 when I first set foot on an offshore drilling rig as a roustabout. Never worked in oilfield before. Making more annually than I did as lead tech at an automotive dealership. People think the mechanics at these dealerships are rich, but the dealership keeps probably 85% of that...

    If you were to completely restart your career...

    I retired after 21 yrs in the oilfield. While I was there and making good money, I invested some of it to build an auto repair shop. Now I'm a "shadetree mechanic" with more work than I can get done, but the worst day here is better than best day offshore by far.

    What's Your View II

    I just know from way too much experience the evaporators are really bad about springing leaks, around here anyway. In Louisiana heat and humidity they may just be more prone to failure.

    What's Your View II

    Hope you replaced the evaporator core too. Or maybe it ain't got one if you're in the Great White North....
