    So quick it was to much trouble to use a coupling or pull the schraders.

    At least you were able to get them out, usually when I find them in that condition they stuck really hard.

    Good lord, I haven't seen one that bad in awhile.

    I remember finding out that goodman put schraders on their coils.
    I never had time to look when I was roughing ghetto, we were doing 12 coils a day.
    It was a big "holy......crap...." moment.
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    "Just get it done son."

    Dad adjusted

    Don't know about the schaders, but that pic of the coupling is ugly. What are some people thinking, or should I say not thinking. I think my son would know how to do that right and he's twelve.

    I haven't used a coupling for anything under 1 3/8 copper in years.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    That looks like the old screwdriver swedge style.

    Get a tubing expander, you won't regret it, you may actually kick yourself for not getting one sooner!
    I'd wait another month or so and track down a Hilmor compact tubing expander when they become available.
