    I've also bought THESE thanks to another link posted here years ago. Seems all they have left are part #'s RF3, RF16, RF67 and RF72.

    From what I have been told the Sporlan tool is for TXV gland nuts.

    The Yellow Jacket 60617 is also only good for TXVs.

    Old Thread, any one ever find the special tool to tighten the packing nut on a copeland condensing unit receivers? I have one that leaks like a sieve when front seated.

    I think I am going to put some permagum on one, and grind a socket to match. They piss me off too.

    I found this, I am going to forward it to United. Looks like that PITA gland uses only an O ring. I will see if they can get me the tool and O Rings?

    So we come to a dead end. Copeland will not sell us the parts or tools.

    Thank you for your interest with Emerson Climate Technologies.



    I’m sorry to inform you but if that part is leaking/broken you need to replace the entire receiver. For receiver replacement please use the following part number:



    Receiver part number: 577-0315-05



    Thank you and have a nice day!

    I gave up trying to stop them from leaking. If I'm doing a big repair I just throw in a receiver on the quote. Usually only about $100-150 for a 6x12 refrigeration research receiver with a packing nut you can tighten. I've sold several of the 6x18 receivers too, p/n 9027 I think, price is about the same

    Have you actually purchased and used these on receivers? The ones I'm used to seeing have a tiny slot, and the tools pictured there look too thick, just going by memory
