Long story short, last summer my fan clutch wires got trashed by the fan and my truck overheated - after that the compressor started cycling.
I added freon and never got around to fixing the leak. Finally, one hot Texas summer weekend, towing my boat, I ran the A/C, cycling and all, until it died (I know, I know).
I had Teflon in the orifice tube, so I am replacing every A/C component thanks to RockAuto (compressor, condenser, lines, evaporator, etc).
Here is my question: I used my a/c manifold gauge set to evacuate the system. What do I need to do to decontaminate them? I am about to just go buy a $50 Harbor Freight set just to be safe. Any thoughts?
You can flush/purge your lines with a little liquid refrigerant, or an a/c flush; blow well to dry.
Intentional release was not described; only that a liquid refrigerant could be used to flush or purge the lines. How one does it properly, improperly, legally, or illegally is their business. Compliance is often full of "grey area". Please see EPA Fact Sheet "Permitted Releases" item # 4
