    Air Con

    Hi Everyone, i have a 91 V8 4.0 limited Soarer and need the air con recharging.

    I know that R12 is not used anymore and have got R134a to replace it. What i need to know is which port do i connect to? Is it on the pump or on the slam panal as both caps are missing and need an adapter to do this.

    Many thanks
    Alex.

    Take a look in the FAQs. I'm no expert but I don't think that r134a is a straight drop in replacement for r12. Read this

    Horsepower is something that looks great in a magazine article but suspension is actually what gets you from A to B fast

    When I had my Soarer regassed, my aircon guy used RS24. This is a drop in replacement for R12 and doesn't need any other parts changed.

    R12 is still available in Japan. 250g can will cost about 3,500 Yen. In Japan, 134a is used for car air con now and it's next to impossible to refill R12 instead of 134a.
    I have refilled R12 gas last year in my favorite garage. It is not allowed to use R12 gas in Japan now but still there are many R12 gas on the market.
