    Meet the Lenant - a Lennox stuffed inside a Bryant case.

    I have to go back to wrap the TXV.

    Pretty simple. A 5 ton Bryant N-Coil failed. I took the roto-zip and cut the back off the case. Undid the coil, slid it out. Moved the center brace to one side, added 2 s-cleats to the other side. Made covers and sealed the old refrigerant holes and drains. Opened the plenum an additional 8" for the new A-coil. Slid new coil in. Added a baffle but-off plate. Built a cover for it. It's nice to have access to both sides of the coil.

    I impress myself with my own ingenuity sometimes. But, still "Wall of Shame" material.

    Appropriate title. Cleaning it someday will be someone elses problem and land it back in here. I'm also my own worst critic, and I would call myself out too.

    Cleaning is easy. Take off the original front panel cover.

    I'm presuming that's a new ll drier, why put it that close to the txv? I leave a few inches so if it ever needs changed there's a little copper to work with. Maybe something has changed but I was always taught to never unbraze a drier.

    It's all new. I put it there because it was convenient. If I have to replace it, which I doubt, I'll replace the coil stub, too.
