Yeah, the hammer! If in ..., give it a clout! I liked it when you emptied the dessicant into the polystyreine and then seconds later moved the polystyreine over the hole in the table.

let me start off by saying, I fix my own cars, but no nothing about A systems. question for ya, no visible leaks on my system, the compressor comes on, and stays on, doesnt cycle off, according to the gauge on the refill can, systems full, all the fuses and relays are good, the actuator door inside the car is switching, but no cold air, seems like most youtube vids I look at?, only adddress a major leak, or a locked up compressor, which I dont have, Ive googled and watched so many vids and they only address a leak or like I said, a locked up compressor, or clutch not engaging, what else should I be looking at?, not knowing whats wrong is driving me nuts

Have you shown the kit you used to put air pressure onto the system? If you have, I'd love a link to see that. And you said Ultrasonic leak detector? I guess it helps you hear vibrations? I quick google shopping search shows me on the low ~$350 and on the a glance on the high that these are $1,000 more. Do they have good reach to go far into tight places so you can hear leaks? I'm very interested in this technology. What else have you used it for?
