    That regulator is not seated correctly so the diaphram is not trapped correctly in the bottom of the recess it sits in . Obviously the regulator has been changed as its not painted green. So whoever changed it put it in crooked .
    Dont pull the gas . Take the bolts out , remove the flange . If its in a vacuum the suction will hold the reg in . You should be able to turn the regulator freely in the hole with some resistance due to the O ring . If you cant turn it its crooked and jammed in the recess . It may suck a bit of air put the diaphram in the bottom will keep most of the air out . Unless whoever installed the reg butchered that too ??

    Cannot be larger than 2 square inches if I remember correctly. If it's larger, it's gotta be recovered... at least in NYS.
    I've done regulators on the fly. Usually use a boiler to bring it up close to zero. Never replaced an oil filter block. Wouldn't think there would be a reason to unless the seat is screwed up.

    You ain't gonna get the charge out in 4 hours. It will take you that long to set it up and push the liquid out. Then at least that long to get the vapor.

    I've done the whole block a couple of times with the machine just slightly below zero. With it off, there are only 4 small holes in the oil sump.

    If you get your pro membership, I could describe the process for you, but not out here in the open.

    I've had a question about recovery units like the one that OP posted a pic of.
    If the chiller has air in it, how do you deal with it? Do you just burp it off the top of the recovery tank? Do you let the purge handle it after charging?
    I only ask because our shop has more or less home made machines that has the ability purge as you recover. We also have a few large reclaimers that will distill 700# at a time... takes a while though.

    I hook up our portable purge to the recovery tank when a chiller has a lot of air in it.
    Don't step on my favorite part of the Constitution just to point out your favorite part.

    Political Correctness is forced on you because you have forgotten decency.

    Technically speaking, they are all heat pumps.
