Over 24 hours a couple psi may mean you don't have a leak. Drop in temp and other factors may weigh in, not to mention moisture boiling off, pull another vacuum and see if it holds an hour. If it does I'd charge it up..Add UV dye to the system to aid in finding future leaks..Once pressure is in the system, it may seal any leaks from O rings that under vacuum will leak a bit. 24 hours is a long time to be under vacuum without a loss of some kind
