Re: High side adapter fitting bad?

For $9.00 I'll take me chance that is a very low budget adapter. I'm just offering my opinion. Never said quit or did I? It's under warranty or buy another one. Either way will get you back to square one. Have you tried another adapter? Autozone in many stores offer rental guages. Sorry if my commen...

Re: High side adapter fitting bad?

A top quality set of gauges does not really act this way in my opinion. I've had some bad couplers over the years. That's with heavy daily use in aq shop. It might be a ball stuck but hard to tell over the internet.

Re: R12 system on 79 Trans Am

Unless I'm missing something. Full Refrigerant, cool inlet and outlet lines, hardly any variation from static pressure. Compressor spinning.

Seems to be a bad compressor.

Cornavirus Update

As for now all of the vendors I use are running as normal. So keep in mind we are still available to support you with the a/c needs one might have.

Reminder we have 2 operating sites at this time.

http://WWW.ackits.com

&

http://www.ackits.net

Which is run independently.

Re: R12 system on 79 Trans Am

Good to hear. Ambient temp being on the lower side is not helping. Add a little more if you like and see if the pressure chnaged as well as cooling.

Re: R12 system on 79 Trans Am

One does not VENT refrigerant, one recovers it and re-uses it. It's illegal to intentionally vent refrigerant.[/quote] This is true! Does this system use an orifice tube? If so are you sure it was placed in the proper direction? Not there yet, but have concerns your compressor is pumping correctly....
