Re: Type 44 AC query

The problem seems to be either low charge or the restrictor/orifice tube. I
was misreading the segments in the diagnostics last night. The low pressure
cutout is cycling the compressor - about every 20 seconds. The heater core is
bypassed at this time (due to catastrofic failure) and I verified operation
of the programmer flaps.
I agree the 15-20 low side is too low.
