Hi, I'm replacing my condenser and drier in preparation for converting from R-12 to R134. Before putting everything together to evacuate and fill, how should I clean the original fittings and connectors? Thanks.
Why do they need cleaning? Soft bristle brush and use Nylog on the new o-rings.
I use paper towels. O-ring seals can tolerate some dirt, but the thing that will cause leaks is fibrous stuff like cloth fibers or hair.
Thanks. It looks like there is something kind of lubricant the threads. I'm guessing that this is Nylog?
Do regular nylon O-rings work or are there special O-rings for automotive a/c applications? Thanks.
What's an alternative to Nylog that I can purchase at my local store? Thanks.
Why would anyone put anything but some light oil (refrigerant oil) on the threads of a connection? -- That is the way the assembly plant factories always did it- before they went to manifold connections......
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
Does anyone know what kinds of stores sell either Nylog or refrigeration oils? I don't have time to wait to order on-line, but I can't find these products anywhere. Thanks.
