Everyone should also remember that on most of our old systems... that the compressor crank seal is kept from drying out by a TINY TINY designed leak of oil from the compressor...
But this can only be renewed when the system is turned on.... so it is good policy to turn the air conditioner on for a short time at least once a month even in the winter... if you go 8 months without using the ac .... on an old car ... that is time for the seal to dry up and leak your refrigerant out...
