Followup to my question from before...
I got some very good replies. I appreciate it.
I do have a good stash of R12. I am torn between using it, and getting
everything set up to use 134. Most likely will stay with R12 for now so I
dont have to change the expansion valve, or worry about capacity issues.
So for simplicity sake I ordered Clarks hose kit through their flowchart
for the components I have. I must say I am quite impressed and happy.
The only thing is the kit I got assumes running all rubber lines to the
front instead of using the originals copper... No problem, just cut and
fit, but paid for hose I did not need. So we mounted up all the hoses
put the new drier in the wheelwell. So all I have to do now is replace
the hoses at the front.
So I guess my next question is what to do about oil in the new sanden
SD5? Do they come pre-oiled? If I go with 12 do I need to drain and
flush it and replace with
compatible oil? How much does it take? Don't want to mess up 5lbs of
We will pull a vacuum on the system in a few days and let it sit for
testing. Then time to give it a charge. Luckily I have my refrigerant
certified and licensed friend helping with the hard stuff.
The next round will be setting AC up in the wagon....
