Hello all, I've heard nothing but exceptional things about this forum and thought I would seek advice.
I have ordered a BNIB Denso a/c compressor w/ clutch, 4 season drier/receiver, 4 season expansion valve, all new seals, and generic condenser for the a/c job I will undertake myself in the following month. I am mechanically inclined and will be doing everything myself.
Since I am removing all my components ( hardlines, softlines EVERYTHING ) What would be the best method to flush all of the disassembled lines without buying 40-50$ A/C flushes? ( I am trying to avoid this excessive expense if it can be done thoroughly another way ) Does anyone know exactly the ingredients in A/C flushes?!
Would a heated pressure washer do a thorough job? I've seen a few random forums suggest paint thinner, gasoline/ethanol, or mineral spirits, but heard those methods discouraged because of residue or contaminants left behind by those methods.
What would be the best brand refrigerant as well?
I will monitor responses to this post. Thank you very much ahead of time!

Hecat Safe flush is what we use.
Power washer would add moisture to you system.
Hecat Safe flush 164$ for a gallon NOOOO THANKS!!! My title says "CHEAP & Effective". Im not looking to spend more than what my Denso compressor costs on flush solvent alone.
If moisture is the only concern, then I honestly dont think it would add moisture if I left the lines to dry 72 hours AFTER blasting them with compressed air for 10-20 minutes??

$43.00 per gallon and it is a lot cheaper using the correct products then redoing it over again and again.
Good luck with the power washer.
