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



You seem to have done all of the hard work. 
They will need to flush out the system of all of the old oil. 
They will then need to put a vacuum on the system, to ensure it will 
hold a charge. If it does, from there they will pour in the R-12 oil 
in the top of the AC compressor, and then add the R-12.

It will cost you significantly more to have R-12 put back into the 
system. 

I still have R-12 in my system
