[DML] Re: recharging my R-12 system with R-416A (another update on #2613)



First of all IMHO it is NOT the "best" way to go converting to -134.
As long as R-12 or it's drop-in replacements are available it is still
better to stay with the origional system. If you are dead-set to
converting, then unless you know what you are doing and have the
proper equipment to do it, you should take the car to a shop that has
experience at, and knows how to do it. A proper conversion involves
removing all of the origional refrigerent, oil, seals, dryer, service
valves, and labels. Testing for leaks, pulling a hard vacuum for an
extended period of time, and a through operational test. Even with all
of that you WILL lose between 10%-20% of your cooling capacity. Most
of the time you will not notice it but when it is REALLY hot you will.
