I think I just blew up my A/C

When I pull a hose or connection open the green rings look horrible. Do you have place to get the inch O-rings? Putting a square peg in a round hole is just not right.
Harbor Freight has the green (HNBR) o-rings in SAE sizes, don't know if the kit has the size you need, though. I've used them on other things, like a pressure washer and airless paint compressor, without any problems.

Is there a way to test for a plugged expansion valve before filling the system with refrigerant?
The only way I know how to test is with the system charged and running.

Thank you Jason for all the help. I sent the hose out today for repair so it won't be until 2 weeks or so that I will get them back.
