That's not bad - but it won't include the manifold that bolts onto the side
- if yours leaks at the seam, it is supposedly unrepairable - avail via
Shokan (cheapest price found) was 200.00 or so. Then you need to replace the
reciever-dryer, check your hoses REAL carefully, and take it down to have it
evacuated and filled. With my leaky manifold, I have to 'add a quart' yearly.
