    They dig holes all over and sleep in the cool dirt! LOL. They do not really seem too affected by the heat. Be it 20 below or 100F they run around and play and do not seem disturbed.

    In Venezuela... nope... I found ONE place that carries them, kind of expensive. And there is a currency control in place, which makes buying them in the US or elsewhere harder... Yet I think i'll go that route.

    Always enjoy hearing from you. I understand your concerns. I always install to the manufacturers code and go with what the local inspectors tell me. I actually had an inspector flunk my install the other day because he could not remember the correct installation of the firestop. It was done correct but failed due to his memory.

    A pipe is supposed to have two inches of clearance from combustibles. A firestop is a metal shield that goes at all ceiling levels and is supposed to deflect fire if the inner and outer pipe seams come apart allowing flames to hit the firestop, shooting them to the sides.

    The thing I do not understand about the combustible clearance is that the firestop is a thin sheet of metal that touches the pipe and conducts the same heat as the outer pipe. If the outer pipe is considered hot enough to ignite combustibles, then the firestop should do the same since it touches the outer pipe. I have never been given a good answer from our dealers.

    He, I can see... Until everything gets fogged down, as I currently have no A/C. The fun stuff is that I have all the parts laying down around the room, I just don't have the HNBR o-rings required for R134a (and I won't risk messing a second Sanden 508, now Sanden SD5H14 compressor by not doing everything right).

    Thanks for the info and the reps Jim, you confirmed what I found in the thread by Steve83 in FSB. I felt extremelly dumb a little later the day I fixed the connection, I'm still trying to recall if I did disconnect that on purpose when I started working on the dash ans column (when I began, I though most of the dash had to come out).

    Tnx for the reps. Sometimes we don't think things through well enough - especially when we don't understand what we are talking about in the first place. But, we'll get there.
