    Pressure Kick



    Hi all,
    I was doing some engine mods on a truck the other day & a sparkie (site A/C man) came up to regas the A/C (CCTX) (134a) system & I asked him what pressure he was going to gas the system to for the ambient temperature & his reply was, I don't worry about that I just add gas till I see the gauges kick, can any one explain this phenomina?
    Thanks - Leigh

    It's a phenomina I've encountered quite a few times now. It's caused by the bloke doing the work talking a load of cobblers!

    Cheers,

    Health and safety first..........unless I'm in a hurry.

    Personally I think you are too reserved Andy!

    However many from Oz in the past.
    Have questioned Electricians ability to install A/C.
    And their stranglehold upon the right to do so.
