Backflushing from the suction, with the compressor removed, or flushed after the drier through the system.

yea pretty much how i do it but never removed a known restriction ... on burnouts when i use Rx11 i do it very cautiously not to plug things up ... thats when i hate the headers & make sure to include on my quote the potential of them getting plugged ...

Just curious, how much one of those headers are worth. (ball park)
From the angle of the pics, I can not see any reason why you could not fit TXV and distributor. I think it would be somewhat easier.???
Would you know if each orifice in each leg is the same size.

The back flushing trick doesnt always work and I always try to parse out the unknown in a repair and make sure my customer gets quality service in a reasonable time.
A lot of time and money can be wasted trying to save a buck.
Now this is the forurth or 5 th header replacement in 10 years and Ive lost count on how many of these Carrier RTUs Ive worked on.
Ive back flushed them before and it worked and Ive done it and wasted half a day and STILL had to change the header. Never again.
Its busy this time of year and I dont have time to waste chancing a repair.
