Quote: I am happy. I never measured the temp but its cold enough that I have to turn it down after a few minutes on the road. I have done this conversion on several vehicles, not just a Montero and I never flush the system or change anything unless it was leaking. There is an oil out now that is compatible with both R12 and 134 that we have here in the hangar that I use. Again I think Dow Corning or the EPA or someone made up this myth that R12 will go thermo if you dont change everything. I saw articles on the so called "Black Death" of the compressor as well but I think the small number of these reported failures points to some other larger problem with the system pre conversion. Cows farting damage the atmosphere more than R12 ever did. John
My findings also ...In hundreds of conversions ...One thing never use sealer ever .. Fix the systems leaks ...Most of the time when you have a leak the leak spits a little oil ..Dirt sticks to the oil at the leak ...Mitus's leak at the adapter at the compressor to hoses alot...Compressers are easy to reseal really ...Some years ago there was a little box pump sold to pump down ac that was ran by air look for one of those ...R134 will and does leak out a smaller whole than R12 .. Leak checkers do not work that good with R134..
My 89 swb has R134 works great ...
Does anyone know if a lwb GEN1 condenser is bigger then a swb...??
