Car A/C R-134 info
First my truck that i drive to work and play in is a 91 and it has an R-12 system.
I've heard when changing to R-134 freon you have to change the compressor oil/ o-rings and totally vacum the old r-12 out before adding the new R-134
I've also heard this is pure A/C industry B/S and have talked to several people that have added r-134 to older r-12 systems and had no problems, a guy i work with has done this to an older car he has about 3 years ago with no problems yet, he just bought the adapters needed ........and vented the leftover R-12 :headshake ( yea i know thats bad for the O-zone) before adding the R-134.
Have searched the net and found info supporting both sides, just curious if anybody here had some input on it?
