The front seal on a model 210 york compressor was leaking super fast, the sound of vacuum is all you could hear with the vacuum pump on it. I bought a new seal kit and instaled it, I put some pressure in the system and could hear a super slow leak, I turned the compressor by hand and it seemed to stop in places. I havent started it up and ran it yet but do you guys know if it needs to run to seat the seal or something? The only thing I noticed that could be messed up is if you put the seal in backwards. I put the plastic end of the seal facing towards the clutch, thats the way I had the old one layed out when I took it apart, also I dont think plastic would do good against a bearing. I didn't use a shaft protector but I did oil the shaft up and cover the keyway hole with tape so I didnt tear it. I would hate to waste a bunch of freon charging it up.
Find it very difficult to understand 'hearing' a small leak. Seems these two are not inclusive. That being said. Run the system, get a coating of oil around the seal and it should stop this leakage. It is normal for a shaft seal to seep refrigerant for several hours of operation.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Once I finish soldering the condenser today hopefully Ill have time to fill it and try it out. Sorry I called it a small leak, I was talking relative to the original blown out seal.
In case anyone has the same problem, I ran it for bout 15 minutes after charging up yesterday. Checked today and it held, first time I've ever had to break in a seal, LOL. I'll check again in a week and post what happens. Thanks
