Well after a couple of hours looking at wiring diagrams, crawling around under it and bleeding everything, I finally drove it down the road about a mile. everything seems to be normal, so I'll trust it to go to the nearest town and back. About 20 miles, after that, I might trust it to take me to work and back, about 80 miles.

I then load up my other vehicle and go fishing. So when a job comes up that I just don't want to do I take my truck down to the mechanic shop and let him have at it.
I like the way you think!
All kidding aside, even when I was young, I'd sure rent a trans jack to pull a ZF sized trans. Air conditioning work has never been one of my main events, so I'm going to take my '91 to a shop in a couple months, have the original freon converted to R135 or whatever it is, plus I noticed my compressor front seal is leaking freon.
