    The compressor position is shifted about 8mm outward on the 97+ bracket while the A/C idler pulley geometry stayed the same.
    Thus, the pulley/CL assy design changed on the 97+ model.

    Extra photo for future reference.

    Mounting geometry at the Eng block is exactly the same between the two.

    Finally, managed to cover more than 50 miles of test driving session.
    Probably the longest time in my life to cover just 50 miles.

    Went to the post office before the Easter bank holiday starts and there were long-long queue outside.
    By the time I managed getting inside, missed the final collection time of 2pm by just 3min as I saw the van leavingÖ..
    For now, only one collection per day and closes at 3pm.

    Still, all packages were moving through their system on Saturday and should be delivered tomorrow.
    Thank you for using my services and hope you'll enjoy the nice A/C control again.

    2020 is the first year I havenít taken the NSX for a drive in memory of the great man.
    With the current global situation, I feel I will like many be keeping an eye on the battery conditioner for most of the year ...

    On a positive Kaz, you may now have the time to install the rest of the carpet set

    Stay safe and well my friend

    Thank you for the feedback and recommendation, Paul.

    Just placed the link to this post in the 'Tyre' sticky thread under the 'Technical' forum.

    Hi, Kaz. Based initially on your guidance and more recently my own experience of the AD08ís Iím also running on a recently new set of 08R and would agree they offer a good balance wet or dry ... might be worth making this a sticky post in the appropriate section, especially as its offering a link to your ex-team mate ... rgds Paul

    Hi, Heineken.
    Had it for years now and while it had far better vacuum performance (2 stage pump), due to air flow rate issue and mainly the fitting spec difference, it was only used as a backup method.

    I wish people made all fittings to the same spec…
    Different thread shape/pitch, coupling spec, etc when buying air tools from Japan, UK, US, Europe….
    As I only use air tools for very limited applications, it was not high priority to sort it out.

    Still, annoying when need using the tool quickly so decided to convert all fittings to single spec this time.
    Hence, the backup now became the main method.

    Looks like a new vacuum coolant filler system, or just the vaccuum meter attached additionally?

    beautiful work as always
    I do not know the course of the car but I see that English weather does not serve fasteners - a lot of oxides !

    "Fair amount of blowby oil trapped at the bottom chamber.
    If excessive amount, you will start seeing white smoke from the exhaust when using high rpm."

    Remembering that effect when I first drove the NSX on a test track in Shiobara with full throttle and looking through the rear mirror. It took me a while to learn that the just recently acquired car wasn't already broken ..

    Yahoo started recovering slowly from yesterday afternoon and now looks to be back to normal so please use my Yahoo UK email address again.

    Many people sent email to my Yahoo UK address while Yahoo was having this technical issue.
    Looking at the time stamp of all the emails emerged later yesterday, looks like they were buffered and not bounced back to the sender.

    I'm in the middle of replying back to all of them at the moment.
    If it's going to be long/complicated subject, I'll at least send out simple email first confirming that I have received yours and will send out another one with much more detailed reply later.

    If you don't hear from me within the next 12Hrs, please resend the email or contact me through different channels.

    Thank you.

    Kaz, thanks for this. Your pictures are always helpful, and doubly so when they have text on them. This set helps the community move past, "my ABS is bad" and into more of a troubleshooting mindset where the different issues can be addressed.
