[DML] Re: What is involved to convert R134a back to R12

Going back to R-12 is fairly simple. Drain and refill the oil in the
compressor. Remove any fittings and labels that may have been added
from the conversion to -134, replace the service valve cores, pressure
test, vacuum, and charge with R-12. Of course this assumes the rest of
the system is in good shape. You may have to adjust the low pressure
switch to get the cycling right if it was messed with during the -134
