The 1/4" sae had a dip tube going to a 3" round ball float. Thanks for taking a shot at the title. Also was marked (Rightemp) the manufacturer I'm guessing.
    Sounds like a Temprite 505:

    Thats an oil seperator. Sorry for missguiding you. I have never heard of an a/c having an oil seperator.

    I've never heard of an A/C having a de-superheating vessel

    icemeister where do you find this stuff ? It is a Temprite but I didn't see a model number. Do I need this on the system ? Can oil get trapped in the discharge line with no way out ? The one I opened up was loaded with sludge on the screen and the oil at the bottom looked like Texas tea.

    Thanks,

    No problem gas_n_go I pulled it out and didn't no, so you had to really be guessing. I have never come across one as well. When they added the remote air condenser they must have been concerned.

    Looking at it again, I see the model must be a 503 because of the 7/8" connections, not a 505.
