The front face plate leaks freon. So does the main seal. Found these leaks with my freon sniffer. Also picked up a couple of junkyard compressors for parts For the Dodge as well.
The propane bottle has been sitting outside for years with the valves open to vent the gas and the smell. My freon sniffer and my nose can’t pick up anything. Once we test the socket and take the valve out of the bottle I’m converting, I’ll rinse it out with soap, water, bleach, and maybe even solvent. Then pull a vacuum on it.
It’s hot here and I need the ac in this rig to work !!!
