Was very close to being done with the entire break down, but the motor shifted and crimped the coil running out from the pump... fluid sprayed out... it's toast. Go figure, I'm careful the entire time and then a fluke thing like that happens. At least it was cheap

Working on getting a fridge with external coils.

It's a gamble. Other than slow and even pressure, not a lot of magic. A lot depends on just how hard the tube was before they turned it into coils. If it was well annealed you should be ok.
