    If oil contamination is a concern just purchase the compressor adapter and drain the oil out of the non affected compressor and use standard cleanup methods and there you go.

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    it is not a requirement to do both compressors. it is good practice on older systems especially if contaminated. on those digi scrolls, they are known to lock up randomly. some tech folks will tell you to replace the solenoid, some tell you to beat them with a 2x4 block of wood and see if you can break them free. been there and have seen it work.
