    There are new Orings in the unit ..
    Soon as you remove the plastic dust covers you can see them.
    The O-Ring is the seal. A little oil MUST be applied to the O-Ring when tightening.

    Another reason to cut them out and replace!

    I believe Hoshi's pre-charged connectors are Aeroquip Series 5780, which use the O-rings for sealing during connecting, but the final seal is metal to metal.

    Finally some luck , my buddy was working across the street ! Borrowed his unit and got her emptied.

    Ok so im a big dummy. I shoved a ice pick into the metal cover and saw the piercing blades are behind it !!!!!

    SOB

    So the lineset doesnt do the piercing... It merely shoves against that metal cover and the blades poke thru .. and the blades end up going inside the lineset !

    Whoooda thunk

    Got it vacuumed , charged , and it just dropped a load of ice

    Soaped the fittings real good and no bubbles
