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

In my case at least, the original hoses are just fine. I've been running R134 through them for one decade now without a single leak.

My low pressure switch rusted through, and I've lost a couple of compressors to shaft seal leaks, but the rest of the system is original and tight as can be.

Anyone who claims that part/all of the system *MUST* be replaced to convert to R134 is just plain wrong. Components *CAN* be replaced, but such replacement is strictly optional (assuming the components aren't damaged to begin with).

Got the new ones from John Hervey because you can replace the AC hoses with his without removing the body from the frame. Also, the valves tend to leak at the back of the compressor. Try metal caps with an O ring to seal it shut. (Thanks David)
