After an hour they came right out.

This is your tip of the day!
Randy is industrial the same as cleaning vinegar? Tracy uses the cleaning vinegar for a million chores around the house but I didn't know it would help free rusted parts? I have been using white vinegar for years to clean corroded electrical connections, it works great.

Thanks for sharing.

The one I took out behind the compressor measured 0.755" just above the o-ring. I have not received the new ones yet. I ordered sensors mfg by Dorman.
