I installed a new compressor a few years ago when the clutch bearing failed on the old one. At that time I had the system vacuumed and R12 re-installed. The original orifice tube was replaced years ago because many of the original ones were contaminated right out of the factory. I still have that replacement tube in the car. Three years ago my son-in-law ( he owns an auto repair shop ) converted things to 134. He vacuumed the system, installed the proper oil, changed the fill fitting and added R134. Since then I've driven the car from Minnesota to Pigeon Forge, on through South Carolina and back to Minnesota. Year two: I drove the car to the California coast and followed the coast line up to Victoria, BC and back to Minnesota. Last year I drove to Chicago, and then on to Williamsburg, VA and, again, back to Minnesota. This spring it's still blowing very cold.
