Oil filter filled with fresh oil.

I have new spare cap so can be replaced but probably the owner kept using with this crack for years and no sign of oil seepage.
Looks like the rubber seal is making good contact against the filler opening so going to leave it for now.

Shift cable back in place

Time for vacuum leak check.

After 30min, no change in the gauge so time to fill up with Type 2 coolant.

Obviously, after months, the battery is well into the conditioning mode.

Glad no headache with the security system after being disconnected from any power supply for months.
Replacement LED/wire working well so another good news.

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

    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.
