Re: CATS Cougar Show George Conrad collection

I attended the first on CATS list of shows and picked up 2 awards at the Shelby Spring Fling. It was a very nice event with 6 Cougars attending including Dyno Don's cat. The CATS award is a really nice one to acquire!

A/C compressor question

I have a an original Tecumseh HG1000 compressor that just went kaput. Yesterday it started hissing behind the clutch pulley and today there was a small pool of lubricant under it.
