Originally posted by ipic I don't have any photos of the parts. If I did I would gladly show them to you. All I have are descriptions, some of which I have put on here. I really just need to know what material this stuff is made of. I am assuming the crossovers are all tubes and would be copper. The other stuff I am not so sure of.
SOUND ENCLOSURE - TOP
CROSSOVER 3/8 [macaroni looking piece of copper]
CROSSOVER TUBE 3/8 O.D.
RETURN BEND 5/1 [slightly bent chunk of copper]
RETURN BEND RING LOADED [ready to solder. ring of solder]
TUBING-SLEEVE-CAP [the plastic sleves to protect a capilary tube?]
If people in the industry don't know what this stuff is. I guess I am pretty much screwed. No worries though. I will figure out something. If any one has any ideas of where to go for online HVAC research I would appreciate the tips. I would be looking for glossaries, dictionaries, diagrams, common terms etc...
Them are all guesses. Your cute. Thanx for the picture. Be careful around me, my Bride gets pregnant just by me thinking about it. Maybe you could talk to her about "header availability"?
My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.
First off thank you Carnak for not going straight to the gutter with headers (I myself had trouble with that)... lol Second, thanks for the info. Third thanks for the laughs guys. You know Penguin I amazed that being a male you would have always thought of headers in a whole new way... What do you all think when you look at nipples?? (the fittings you know) Anyway, sorry couldn't resist.
Thank you so much for the help. Glad I could entertain you all. In response to everyones posts: The thing is I would gladly give part numbers, however due to client confidentiality rules, I can not. I am not trying to sell the parts I am just trying to learn what they are. Basically pretend I am building an AC unit (of any type) and needed to know what each part was and how it worked. By doing this it gives me the info to decide if it is a Metal fitting, flange or union, or if it is a part for a compressor, or a coil, or if it is just tubing, a heat pump, a thermostat, an igniter,or a wiring harness...etc. These are just some of the categories I have to choose from. By learning about this stuff I get my job done more accurately and as a bonus I learn about and AC unit. This would come in handy if I needed mine repaired. lol Oh and spotts I am not sure what to tell your bride... i guess some gals like it and some don't. I will have to think on this one.
I may be back with more quesitons, hopefully one of you guys can help. Take care and talk to you later.

Whenever I look at nipples as a natural reaction I start to think about laying pipe. Which is not only my profession but what I enjoy doing anyways. Whether it be into a header or the female end of a Y fitting, either way it doesn't matter because I know I'll be doing something I love.
Anyone know anything about gas water heaters? Or is this sight for blowing for hot and cold air only??
I am really jsut trying to find out about orifices... I know I am opening a new can of worms with that, but oh well... Any thoughts? I know that it has some thing to do with the pilot or the igniter am I right? Is there more then one kind of orifice?
