Can I use "regular" drugstore mineral oil instead of "525" mineral oil, on the green o-rings in the ac fittings during reassembly?
You should be using a product called "Nylog". Drugstore mineral oil is not the same as 525 AC mineral oil that was used in R12 systems.
I have always read that you can use dialectric grease on the O-rings too. I have used it several times without issue
I DO have some dielectric grease. I suppose I'll use that.
Make sure you use it sparingly. The grease is pretty thick and easy to accidentally let "scoop" into the hard line you're putting the o-ring over. So if that happens you obviously want to wipe it out with a clean blue/shop towel or something before putting the line together.
