I am going through retrofitting. Right now everything is off and open.
Yesterday I put compressor together after changing gaskets turned into
complete disassembling as I dropped one semisphere-like rocker. One of
those which sit on a piston. I will charge A/C system with PAG. My
question is: what kind of product should I buy to add dye? I don't
want to mix with ester oil. I've read that dye is mixed with oil in can
(no info on the can I saw). I think it is ester oil. I also saw a can
of R-134A with dye which says that it should be charged liquid.
Instruction says that you can not charge liquid via low side - can blow
up. It sould go first trough a throttle. What is throttle? Is it
regular valve which used for R-134A charging?
Is there dye in the free form which I can just add to PAG oil before
