Thanks for all the help, guys.

 

Right now, I'm going to enjoy the state of denial.  I have -5° in the FC and holding for two days, compressor is cycling.  I have peace restored in the house.  I know Murphy is waiting, but I may put off the ultimate fix as long as I have to.  I appreciate the confirmation on 7015780.  That's what I really needed, as I'm pretty sure it's on the low side, especially with a leak of 3 oz or so every 2 to 3 months.  I know I'll have to face it sooner or later.  Having components in hand when the time comes will be a big help.

If you have it working now, and its taking a few months to leak out, this would be the perfect time to put  dye in the system. That way you can monitor it  every month to locate the leak and fix it before it goes out again and there won't be any guessing where the leak is at.

The last time I used dye was about 100 years ago back in the R12 car A/C days.  I never had much luck with it and never tried it on sealed systems.  What would you recommend?
