    Follow this link, probably the best read up on reciprocating compressors. http://www.pdhengineer.com/courses/m/M-3030.pdf

    First I want to thank you all guys for your help!! Came back for maintenance today with new comp; and did what IRBH said; after killing the power I could feel the hot gas flowing in the suction line. I replaced the comp and now system runs fine; just had to adjust the TXVs a little to decrease SH and cool that new comp properly; still hard to get decent readings with multi load systems but manage to get 16F SH at compressor with just one LLS open(1\2) and 7F with 2 LLS opened.

    i believe the compressor is bad any compressor i have seen will pull down to at least 10in hg if it is working properly. i think that the valves are shot.
