    Welcome acnoob

    As k-fridge said “You can learn a lot 'round here” but this roller coaster sure gets bumpy at times.

    Thanx Guys!

    This is such an applied technology,that I am really anticipating my internship.Still have to take residential AC (window units) and heating.Got the Universal Certification out of the way awhile back,but really need to go out and get my hands dirty.Again,any recommendations on what type of manifold sets to buy?Again,somewhat leary of the combination 22/410 manifold set from Imperial.A few techs I've spoken with have said that they don't use the 3/8" evac line that's included on some manifold sets.Thanx again for any info-acnoob

    The 3/8 port can help reduce your vacuum time considerbaly.

    Manifolds are a personal choice.

    Most entry level sets are pretty much the same.

    The Imperial you mention is not any better or worse than any with similar ratings.

    You may want to consider a different set for use on any system with mineral oil.

    A fourth fitting is handy, for use with a micron gage, or while charging.

    Most people use the bare-bones model, and keep more than one set.

    Beenthere is spot-on with his recommendation for the 3/8 fitting.
    Speed is critical when drying out a system.
