System works great (30/200 42deg vent) on first drive for about 20 minutes (2000-2500 rpm). Afterwards, pressures climb to 35/225 49 deg vent when car is hot. Clamping heater hoses has no effect. Question is, when hot at 1500 idle, I got 40/225 54deg vent. Unclamped TXV capillary "pig-tail" bulb, put in ice water, got 30/200 with 43 deg vent. Seems to me that the evaporator is flooding, but I had the bulb clamped at 9 o'clock & covered with that white refrigeration semi-sticky insulation. Evap inlet & outlet are "reasonably" the same temp. They sweat, but no ice. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
