    If the comp is kicking off on the internal overload , will he be able to take all of the required readings , temps , pressures?

    Well he doesn't say how quick the compressor kicks out, but I'd hope it would take 'awhile' beings its a new install.

    He'd have to have something...?

    With an 8' line set, You usually have to take some gas out.

    Did you leave it run for 15 minutes before checking the charge.

    If it won't run long enough to get the readings. Take some gas out, and try again.


    May have to recover, and weigh charge back in, minus the difference of the line set, and precharge length.
