I feel your pain dave. I had to work until 6 pm one night this week on my new job..and I had to change a 1/3 hp lt r-12 unit.WHEW!
R-12 just pace your self and dont rush or you will burn out fast my man. Make sure it is dont correctly the first time and you will continue to love the job and the customers will love you too. WORK SMART EVERY DAY AND BILL LOTS OF O.T.!

We got a fifteen down on a low temp rack. Gotta R & R first thing in the morning.
Store manager asks if I can delete the midnight defrost. I say sure.
He leads me up the stairs into the motor room and there is all this junk stacked everywhere!
I have no clue how my parter spent the last couple hours there diagnosing the unit and making his shopping list.
There was barely room to walk, much less to work.
I told the manager and his assistant no one was leaving the room until this stuff was removed. He smiled and began grunting stuff into another room. Gads .... these people...
I stopped by Grainger tonight and picked up a chain hoist for tomorrow.
The guy whose hoist we normally use is outa town for the next two weeks.
This one was much nicer than his.
It has a lever and a knob. And a short stubby handle.
You can incrementally raise or lower the load, safely and easily, effortlessly even.
And you dont have to jerk no chain to do it either!
You simply turn a dial or use the lever. You have complete control over the load at all times.
No more course adjustments only, now you can make fine adjustments all the way up or down.
It costs some bucks, but considering a guy just got hurt bad last week due to using his chain fall hoist, the company shouldnt complain about the cost of this little darling..... ($239).
