    This is why I say don't mess with the cap tube it must be the exact same size and length, and you can not cut a cap tube you must have a fatory replacement available

    I've installed many cap tubes that need to be cut in the field for whatever application you may have. The roll came with a chart to tell you what length you needed depending on a lot of different factors (refrigerant,static or fan cooled). I usually scored the tube all the way around with a small file and then it will break apart without leaving any inside blockage. I guess I'm showing my age because that use to be the only way I could purchase and use them.

    Now I can tell my mind had just been leaking out slowly over time when I loose my cool
