    I use denatured alcohol & proplyene glycol. rather then putting a barb on the bottom where it might leak i go in the side near the top. i use a submersable pump but you can still do it with an inline
    pump by running a pickup hose to the bottom.

    Anyway, I'm thinking the next step should be to cut that shaft right back close to the motor. You won't be needing that anymore. And all of that styrofoam can be removed. Then we can think about what size/shape container we need for a reservoir.

    gary, thank you sooooooooooo much, i was looking for a cooler, but now that you stumbled upon this, and it is quite a nice size! I'm in the same situation. Would u recommend that you put a barb on the bottom to take the water out?
    I have seen these coolers in the stores. They are sold everywhere. If at all possible, everything should go through the top lid.

    Very slowly! take your time. i do it all by hand. dont try to bend any sharp radius. copper bends easy, watch for kinks.

    Did you get that styrofoam out of the way so we can see how much room we have?

    ok, i started my project today, and i'll have pics up a bit later. I found one of those coolers at target for 10 bux and my evap will fit perfectly. I made some mods to the ac unit by cutting the shaft down, and clearing some of the fan molding off. I was gonna get a danner mag 5, and since u say to go all through the top, will it suck up the liquid? or does it have to be submerged?

    This is going to take some creative bending to get it in a cooler. We can try to get just the evaporator in a small cooler, or we can use a large cooler and put both the evaporator and the suction line in it. Either way, a bending tool is a very good thing to have. Keep in mind that the weak spot is the connections. We want to bend the tubes without breaking the braze joints.

    ok i have a good idea but i duno if it is possible... ok if u see in this pic the capillary tubbing is low and also coiled up... now im trying to have all the stuff goin in through the lid of the cooler and i duno what the big tube is thats comming off the top of the evap but that ends up goin towards the top of the compressor. so my idea is to have the cooler butting up right next to the compressor so that i dont have to bend ne tubbing except for the cap tubing. now im wondering if its going to be possible to unravel the captubbing just enough to run up the big tube that it is zip tied to or is it not possible? my thoughts are that the cap tube will kink or be kinda twisted if i unravel it a lil..

    Cap tubing is no problem at all. You can bend it all over the place without kinking or breaking it. Just be careful not to put stress on the ends of the cap tube. That is where it can break. You can also easily bend the small tube that the cap tube is attached to (with your bending tool). But again, just be careful of the point where they connect to each other.

    If it breaks, just back up and let it blow. Liquid on your skin can cause frostbite. The refrigerant is non-toxic, but avoid breathing it anyway. It contains no oxygen, and you need oxygen. Open a window. Wear gloves and goggles, just in case.

    In the picture you have added the words "move cap tubing up here". To the right of the word "up" there is a 45 degree bend in the suction line. Use your bending tool to straighten out the tubing, removing that bend. This will move the suction line away from the compressor, giving you a lot more room. Then you won't have to sit the cooler on top of the compressor base.
