      I've used Redline MT-90 in O2A's I drain and filled/rebuilt. Been happy with it so far myself and never heard bad from customers.

      I've used these people in the past and they are just awesome. Mostly I use them for building A/C kits for cars and engine swaps, but they sell compressors and parts by the P/N.

      Well the forged pistons require a larger clearance anyhow...So a cold clearance, you could probably feel. Also a leakdown test on a cold engine, with forged pistons will result in high leakage...

      Little to no change in pressures when the compressor kicks on (especially if the low side drops a tiny bit but the high side doesn't) the compressor is shot.
