Either way, it sounds like a pretty easy and painless alternative, thanks for the help!
Right- youre on the right track, lotus. Keep going. Hey, please let us know what happens as we do care. (if you "opened up" the system , as you have with zero pressure/cracked tube, you should get a new dryer- I figured you probably know that already- basic ac stuff.........
