I'm hearing titian and sherman manifolds. I worry that they are leakers. I'm gonna bust my brain choosing a manifold I trust.
I saw a sherman for $172. Good deal or keep looking?
Seems high to me.
With a couple of 1/8" pipe thread adapters, the AK can be fit to any manifold.
When I bought my 1200, I had it on a Brute Manifold. It worked well, but I got fed up with the oversized, overweight manifold that doesn't hang straight because of the big, fat 3/8 hose sticking out the back.
Refit the adapters to a YJ 41 reversed so the hose parks are on the front and have been using that for both DC ever since.
I have Appions and C&Ds. Got five micron gauges in the last year....I think I went overboard there...JB, Nova, Bluvac and Testo.
One thing i never heard guys talk about is the broken core extractor and re threader, dude, that is a must have.
Anyone ever hook hoses to the ak direct with no manifold??
How would you flush the oil out of your low side hose that sometimes shoots in when you connect to a system?
There is a very interesting instrument, that is capable of doing much of what many of us have wanted an instrument to be able to do for a very long time, but it has one critical deal killer of a design flaw, that the inventor refuses to acknowledge or rectify.(besides the name and the price:rolleyes: )
It connects to the system with standard refrigerant hoses, but has no manifold.
