I could repeat myself, but that would be foolish!
500 Microns is how you pull a vacuum, a GOOD tech should know this basic knowledge...
do you have coil voltage at the compressor contactor?
God only knows whats going on there, Some compressor just break internally and seize up.. If its not out on overload replace the compressor..
Ya most of those old green carriers are internally trapped.. Usually there's a sticker, but if faded stick ya finger in there like karl k suggested is the best way to tell...
