Thanks for that advice, fdryer, but the rebuilt compressor is already installed. I thought the reason for tightening the bolts to a certain spec was to make sure you didn't strip the aluminum. Oh well, maybe I'll hit it lucky on that one.

The suction line is the one I'm worried about right now. The line itself moves, I mean that I can actually feel the line move even though it's bolted. I hope that changes when there is pressure put on the line. I won't fill the system until the drier gets here of course. I called Saturn to ask if the diameter of the two O-rings that are on the compressor are the same and he said that even though the two rings are different sizes, one larger than the other, the actual diameter of both rings are the same. So I'm fairly sure I have the correct rings. Again, won't know until I fill the system. Thanks again for the help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
