Quick question for you guys! What materials can be used to insulate the sensing bulb onto the suction line of the evaporator? Also, are small stainless worm clamps appropriate to hold the bulb to the line?
I have searched and found that Presstite Tape is recommended. Is this the tape that is very sticky/gooey? Would something like self adhesive foam pipe insulation tape work equally as well? Something like this
My only worry is the strength of the adhesive, would it eventually unravel? Where can I buy the Presstite if that is my only option?

AC Kits has presstite in stock.

The foam tape will not work. The moisture & temp extremes kill the tape adhesive in a few days.

Cork insulation tape- commonly known as dum-dum
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......
Thank you guys, swung by AMA and picked some up this morning (this is the OP)
