    The kind who doesn't have a proper Igor. Any of the lads from up around Ubervald would be happy to whip up a suitable lightning-in-a-bottle rig down in the cellars. AND fix the Evil Electrician [better than ever] if given half a chance. GEM

    Suggestion: Buy two new tires and get what mileage you can out of the best two of the ones currently in use. Advantages of lower cost, sets vehicle up so that in the future you are buying tires two at a time instead of the big chunk of cash that 4 tires represents. You have brand new tires on the drive axle and the other two have been inspected so you are good to go for awhile. GEM

    A.K.A. The Great Leveler of the lesser demon Pot-Hole GEM Welcome to the Madhouse. Survival tip: If it's in purple it was typed with the tongue firmly inserted into one cheek. Also: stay upwind from Buglips [especially with the new whale puke based after shave] and open all packages from Glitterwolf with a great deal of care and caution. Other than that, enjoy the friendly banter, general camaraderie, and the empathy for those of us going through a rough patch. GEM

    Is it a refrigeration system or a swamp cooler? If it's a refrigeration system it is condensing the moisture out of the air, a normal part of the process. In really humid weather an efficient system will have a small steady stream of cold water coming off of the condenser. If it's a swamp cooler it's either not sealed properly or the float valve is set too high and the reservoir is overflowing. Good Luck GEM

    For the contactor, you are safe to go with one with a slightly higher rated amperage capacity but one with a smaller capacity is definitely a No-Go. Trying to run the system on a too low amperage rated contactor is like trying to use too light an extension cord. The first thing you will notice is the plugs/wire getting warm then comes the electrical fire. With the contactor, it will burn out and you will be lucky if the extra strain on the motor doesn't cause it to overheat and burn out. For the starting capacitor, if you are within 10% of the rated capacitance of the one being replaced you should be good to go. Good luck with your repairs. GEM
