Re: Compressor conversion doc. 2nd. Ed
Most A/C Leaks can be attributed to poorly tightened joints or someone damaging a joint by not applying a wrench to both sides of the joint while trying to break or tighten the joint. Your compressor should work fine.
A good way to check it OUT OF THE VEHICLE is to figure a way to HAND-TURN it over using clockwise rotation with your finger on the intake port. You may need to apply 12 VDC to the clutch magnet to do this properly. If you feel a bit of suction and it does not go away immediately, the compressor is probably ok.
