    I think for the time we have it's a ton of information. I get that we're just learning the basics/building a foundation. I'd like to think that I'm prepared for stuff/class. I think a big part of it is age/maturity.

    Went to the sporland class on this. Pipe inlet outlet is key. You could replace a 163 with a 033 on a walk in. No big whoop

    Bigger is better in driers.

    Stupidest thing I’ve ever seen was a sweat in 1 1/8 drier! Needless to say when I walked away it had a replaceable core drier. Why anyone would sweat in a drier on that size liquid line in a tight space is beyond me

    I’m disappointed. The start components should have come individually and without the wires so you would have to wire it from scratch!

    I think she said that because she said something about overheating but she also said it's steel to copper connection and some that's a no go with 15%
    Sounds silly when you know there are 15% steel to copper joints out there twice the age of a lot of guys here.

    I'll stick with the stick too :cool:

    Still missing a few components here, but it's a work in progress.

    I did something similar once.

    Was a weekend. Had a plugged C-305-S

    All I had was a C-164-S so I put it in with some stubs of copper

    Not quite as extreme as a 1-1/8 to 3/8 drop :lachen:
    I don't even think I have any driers in my van any more except 2 RC4864

    He did a nice job cleaning EVERYTHING. Coil, fan, condenser base and the entire top enclosure. Also cleaned the drain pan and bent up the new discharge line in the pan. He'll wire things up next week and get lines, access fittings and filter drier brazed in. Evacuate, charge and test it. He finished all classwork early so this is his baby to keep busy with.

    Target wants a drier before every expansion valve so there’s C-033-S, C-054-S and all kinds of goofy driers hidden all over hell that plug up

    Should also mention he made the diagnosis.
