I was called out to an old church on an a/c unit several years ago they said hit jus need a little juice. head pressure 350 suction 20 condenser clean went inside to check txv and there was none liquid line frosty. crawled under church to find 60 feet of liquid line pinched about every 6 inches to act as a cap tube. one of the members had bought the unit at a yard sale and installed it him self. I gave them a new a coil I had laying around and just charged then for new copper and gas.
