    Hi Dean!

    Can I please ask you a HVAC question?

    Mini Split for my garage. Lines need tight bend at the point where they exit the wall and turn down to the ground How do I bend the likes w/o cracking / kinking the lines or damaging where they are meet the evap.

    Can I apply some heat, is there a close quarters bending tool or am I faced with just grabbing on and grunting my way to a curve that will work? Lines are 1/2 and 5/8 inch. Only the 5/8 has a spring around it. If heat is suggested do I use MAP gas or propane?

    Maybe I can first bend the lines with the indoor unit on a bench & snake them thru wall sleeve with some delecate maneuvering of the indoor unt. If I gotta bend the lines after the indoor unit is on the wall..... well that might be a necessity. I sure don't want to screw up the lines or the connections to the evaporator.

    Any help greatly appreciated


    Thank You
    Ray "Oman" Opperman
