    4th tear down this year is kickin my .....

    I had to break down the gantry and reset it 4 times to get to this point, fighting pipes, conduit and an air handler, all the volutes and economizer are right beside the chiller with no where to go. 300 miles from the shop so had to get a machine shop to make some leg extensions.
