|Thread: Can someone identify this collet please|
Thank you all for the replies, I looked under Erikson and I think they are TG100's.
I won 10 x DK20 collets on an auction site and received these, can anyone identify them please, I would like to let the seller know what he has sent.
Any help would be appreciated.
|Thread: Air con pipes|
These pipes are made of thin wall aluminum, not the best stuff to weld, also the system works at very high pressure 250 PSi is often seen in hot weather and the car is in traffic.
I have had some expensive pipes repaired by a local hydraulic company replacing the flexible part of these pipes but not the solid aluminum ones.
If you do manage to repair the pipe the system will have to be evacuated and regassed, adding any oil that might have been lost when the pipe failed.
If the pipe has been damaged for some time, it will be necessary to replace the reciever/dryer in the system.
