OK finally found out what was wrong with my system but thats for another posting. My system had tons of residue oil and dye in it. I was pumping oz after oz of green snot out of the compressor then flushing even more from the evap and condensor. In the end I pulled the drier and on my friends advice (mechanic) I pulled the schader valve and blew a few quick poofs from the air compressor hose to clear out the oil/dye. How much damage will this do the element?, I quickly sealed it off when I was done. I live in pretty much the desert so there was almost no humdity in the air. The drier was was open for less than 5mins if that.

Don't even fool with it, start fresh, a drier is cheap enough..Blowing air thru them is not a good idea, change it and be done..
