I need an Adler Barbour R12 evaporator box 6"x10"x11" to replace mine. I punctured it! The compressor (Danfoss Cold Machine) was working fine. It lost all pressure, so I will have to refill and pull a vacume. I have researched epoxy and/or brazing repair as an option, but have been told that doesn't work well. So, I am hoping to locate a used unit to reconnect to my compressor. Any possibilities and/or suggestions from any similar experiences would be appreciated.

.... what's that?
Here is a tip for everyone that did what I did with a knife as I punctured the evaporator on our Catalina 36 5 years ago and is still working today, The evap is very thin aluminum and will not take heat or silver solder cuz it will just melt the evap. What you can do is go to Grainger supply and get what is called RED EPOXY if they still carry it, it is made just for this, It is heat activated.
Here is a link to what I used and explains it more in detail.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
