    Did you install the cap tubes in the distributor first ? I had a hard time on a w/i evaporator coil with the cap tubes all staying in position while welding them in. I had to change just the distributor.

    Nice job.
    Next time strap that TXV down so it won't vibrate off.

    Now send those picture to POS trane and Carrier and tell them you want 2% of the sale.

    thanks!...your prolly correct on straping the txv , which i will do next time..for those wondering this only took me about 6 hours total and about 250 in parts...carrier was 2 weeks out on a new header assembly and was twice the amount of this conversion...so i think this is a win win for everybody
    RTFM!!!
