    still not reccomended by me, but i doubt its gonna hurt anyone
    maybe not physically hurt someone, but if a service provider jump out a safety and my unit blew up. That vendor would buy my a new unit. regardless of the age of the unit, the hurt comes from not having a job or a bad rep.

    My advice, record everything, do it right and inform the customer, if you cant fix it before you leave lock it out or pull the fuses

    Fan was eventually going out on overload. The maintenance guy would notice it and reset high pressure and walk away. When I pulled the motor all of the oil was leaked our of it.

    As others have said that is a call you need to make, supply houses are generally open the next day here
    No schrader? Holy crap...this is why it pays to hang out here!

    Anyone have a picture of this tee handy?
