    Pump by the service valve. You can reduce the head pressure or close some body. I dont see other way.

    Just pump into the suction header. It will make it there shortly.

    When you're working on oil problems, you shouldn't be in a hurry anyway.



    Be a MAN and pump it in through the service valve on the turbashed....

    ...in July


    ...with a dirty condenser

    In response to mspanky's post - I wouldn't be in a mad rush to pump a gallon of oil into the suction header....but that's just me.
