Re: [DML] R134 Freon @ $6.40 Per Can



I've helped do better conversions on two cars since I did mine.  I recently helped another owner replace his whole system with new barrier hoses, switches, dryer, VOV, new R134a compressor and flushed the evap and condenser with mineral spirits.  That was about three weeks ago and it's working very well.  So I certainly agree with you that you can get great performance from R134a.  My first car was a 1987 Plymouth Duster and that had R12.  I remember on a very hot humid day I opened the door and the vents were fogging - the air was so cold the humid air was condensing in the air stream!  I haven't seen R134a do that, but it's certainly cold enough.

On my own car in the near future I will be doing all the same parts but I will also be swapping out the condenser for a custom parallel-flow type that DMC6960 (Jim Reeve) pointed me to.  After that I expect to never touch the A/C system ever again.

I did a half-assed conversion a decade ago (just new switches and valves, flushed system, vaccumed, and recharged with R134a) and while it blows cold when it's topped off, every year I need to add more.  I've had dye added and the main lines are just seeping along the whole length of the car.  There is no loose fittings or a bad part.  The hoses just do NOT WORK.
