I'm 90% into the same problem/fix as Jeff. Griffith's with 3x Condensers [1x Decklid and 2x in Rear Fender] and all the Griffiths extras: Evaporator, Fan, Hoses, Switches, etc... It has worked great for 4+ years. However, last month, I noticed it was not cooling as well. After much searching, I determined there was a very small leak at the decklid condenser and hose connection from the compressor - Same hose as Jeff's just the leak was a few feet down the line...

I changed out all my O-rings and purchased a new dryer from Griffiths. Pressure tested with Nitrogen @ 150psi for 2-days - - No leaks. So, pulled a vacuum and just had a tank of 134A dropped off so I'll fill it this weekend.

Moral of the story: a small leak will cause the same issue Jeff is having... Hope you get it resolved! Shannon
