The system held vacuum for an hour. After putting the right amount of 134a in the system it leaked out. The dye coming out of the condensate drain meaning its a bad evaporator. Why did the vacuum hold while a leak was present?

Do you

Because its a small leak and the pressure when you charged and with the ac compressor on is much greater then the vacuum you applied.
