    I carry a box of different sized ID cap tube and cut to fit mfd spec. The argument I have for replacing the whole thing is almost every old cap tube has build up material on its walls and is already unable to behave just like new. when changing out those little compressors a cap tube left in the system may get you back to do it again in a few years.

    I would change the cap tube
    I have soldered them. I will not patch them if the bad spot is outside the 100% liquid part of the tube
    If the superheat ain't right it ain't charged right.

    10/4 on the repair location. It's not a liquid line to a txv. If you got liquid coming out the end there is another problem.
