Here are the steps to install the MRCOOL Flare to 3/8 Weld Fitting for Universal Series:
1. Turn off the power to the outdoor unit and disconnect the refrigerant lines from the flare connections.

4. Clean and deburr the cut ends of the refrigerant lines with sandpaper or a wire brush.
5. Slide the weld fitting over the refrigerant line and align it with the flare connection on the outdoor unit.
6. Apply flux to both ends of the weld fitting and the refrigerant line.
7. Heat the weld fitting and the refrigerant line with a torch until the flux melts and bubbles.
8. Touch the brazing rod to the joint and let it flow around the weld fitting and the refrigerant line, forming a smooth and even bead.
9. Repeat steps 5 to 8 for the other refrigerant line.
10. Let the joints cool down and check for leaks with soap water or a leak detector.
11. Reconnect the refrigerant lines to the outdoor unit and tighten the flare nuts with a wrench.
