Re: R-134A retrofit
Its not hard or complicated.
I bought a $40 kit from Autozone, converted my old FORD truck, it took about 2 hours, cost $40 bucks, and blew ice cold for 2 and a half years until I sold it.
I did remove the compressor and dump the oil, I DID peressure check with compressed air and soap.
I didnt flush anytyhing ( other than letting gravity dump the compressor) I didnt vac pump anything.
I was probably lucky, but it worked for a long time, and it was cold, and it was cheap, and Ive talked to several other folks who did the same thing I did ( some even less) and it worked for them too!
try it yourself first, see if it wors or NOT.
this is all ONLY IF THERE IS NO R12 in there!
Mine was empty, nothing I had to jumper the compressor to take the new refrigerant ( it was a YORK)
