    And if you add refrigerant and have still have high SH and get a high SC reading then cap tube is restricted and time to change it out...

    Hope this Helps...
    Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean, all you get is that one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, well, the sky's the limit!

    yes this does help thank you... I thought that mp-66 is usually only 80% of the charge for r12?.. now will going from a .049 to a .050 be a problem?

    How does one plug a new cap tube ? Did you keep the same length ?

    My bad I thought you said you changed it from a .049 to a .050. You should always change the cap tube with the compressor. How long does it take to equalize form hi to low when you shut it off ?

    I wouldn't be concerned with how long it takes to equalize for a couple of reasons.
    1st ... SH & SC doesn't lie...
    2nd... Depending on temp of box, if cold will take longer to equalize than a warm box...

    But I do agree that the cap tube or tubes should be changed out when changing a compressor...

    Last I recall he said his box was @ 70+*. I would expect it to equalize within a few minutes. Not 10 or more. The cap tubes I have found pluged took forever and some never equalized while I was there.

    My answer is given as a general rule if someone is uncertain as to what they are doing they will have a better chance at getting the correct answer instead of guessing...

    If the manufacture knows that you put Hot Shot, yes they will void warranty...

    I've got 5 lugs of the stuff at the warehouse that when I started here over 4 years age I had pulled off all the vans and now they sit and collect dust and are only used when someone needs their vehicle AC charged....
