Making AC Lines
Trying to get the AC working in my NAS D110. I plan to drain all refrigerant, flush/clean and remove whatever blockage I seem to have, complete the R134 upgrade with new pressure switch and drier, put to vaccum, and add new refrigerant. Already checked the compressor and replaced the AC belt. It runs now and blows some cold air but not alot and AC manifold readings tell me I have a blockage in the system somewhere.
I ordered a new drier from AB with the upgrade kit. Problem is that the new one has a pressure switch but no AC lines with it. The old one has hardlines welded into the drier. SO I need to make new AC lines for the new drier.
I see online sources for AC stuff (lines, crimpers, etc..) but I am not convinced that I can get rubber lines to bend the way I need the new drier lines to bend to attach to the condensor and such.
Anyone know if you can fab up lines with copper or other metal materials? I found out LR sells a direct replacement drier/switch and it costs............over $800 from the dealer. No way I am going that route. The AB drier/switch should be fine with new lines thus my question.
