    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.

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN REMOVE THE SHREADER THINGYS?
    It's not if your doing it right it's whether your doing the right thing that is important.

    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.
