    No I mean torch propane as R290 refrigerant. Or do I need a higher grade? Chilly1 told me that the kind you use in a grill isint pure enough.

    I figure the propane in the propane torch is probably more pure than the grill propane and may work better

    OK, So if i bring it to canadian tire they should be able to do it coze they have gauge sets, propane, and they could solder it.

    But is it secure to put some R290 in a 134a compressor? And is the capilary tubes important?

    If they have the tools than they should probably beable to do it

    and u shouldn't have any problems with R290 in the compressor
    and the cap tube is very important and if gary was here he would say its the most important
    i use 4ft of .036 but thats for R22 it might work for u but for a more close to perfect size u might want to ask gary

    jll,

    It seems you have a lill' insulation problem, considering pic 10b... The armaflex used does not seem to provide sufficient insulation to battle condensation forming on it's outside. Nice temps you got there though! Nice 'n ghetto lookin setup too

    I agree. That insulation looks very thin. In commercial low temp systems, we use 3/4" wall thickness on all of the pipe insulation. I wouldn't go less than 1/2".
