Evaporator bench testing

webbch on Mon June 23, 2008 10:44 AM User is offlineView users profile

I've pulled the dash on my friend's '93 mustang and aside from a burr on the evaporator inlet and lack of an o-ring, it appears to be in good shape. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on bench testing an evaporator for leaks. Is rubber tubing and hose clamps the name of the game, or do you go to the trouble of sourcing the needed fittings to block off one side so you can either pressurize or pull a vacuum on the other side? If you pressurize it - about 90 to 100 psi sound good? Thanks.
