If you mean to use on automotive R134, then you can buy them at many auto parts stores. I've seen the at O'Reiley auto parts. I've called 5 different auto supply dealers one day looking for these, becuase one of mine broke, finally gave up. 3 days later I was in one of these stores, and lo and behold they were there on a display buy the freon, and conversion kits. You can also find them online. Amazon has them http://www.amazon.com/FJC-6025-Coupler-Manifold-Conversion/dp/B000JFJLK6YOu can buy a cheap manifold set with adaptors at Harbor freight for 49.00.

91 Mercedes 300 E has R12 ac system that is no longer blowing cold. A faint bit of cool air sometimes shows up but it can hardly be called cool. Is there any additive out there compatible with R12?


Propane does the same as R12. I don't recommend it though(highly volatile). Best to convert to 134R. Last time I converted an R12 system was about 10 years ago. I would tell you how to do it, but I could get in trouble because you have to vent out the R12 first. I don't even know of a shop that has an R12 unit anymore. Good for you, they still have the adapters to go over your ports and the 134R today is compatible with the old systems oil. No need to change the compressor, dryer, and expansion valve.

How do I figure out what type of refrigerant I need for the ac?


The car originally had R12. If it has not been converted to R134 you would need to have it serviced by a pro or have someone convert it to R134. The R134 fill kit will not fit the R12 fittings.

How to recharge the A/C system


You would need to find out if the system has been converted to R134 or if it is still using R12.
If R12 you would need to have a licensed tech do it, or have someone convert it to R134.

What type of refrigerant for a/c


It came from the factory with R12 but look and see if it has already been converted to R134. If not then convert it over the R134 as R12 is very expensive. If it is low then you have a leak that must be repaired before adding refrigerant. It is illegal to add refrigerant to a leaking system.

1989 Chev PU , Aircon Dead , Want to Convert


Anyone can convert R12 to R134. It is as simple as screwing the two adapters on the low side and high side charging ports. Now to charge it you need to evacuate it as you said and then charge the system with R134. The hardest part is finding the way to evacuate and then recharge the system without going to a repair facility.

How much to recharge A/C unit in 92' Buick LeSabre?


Depends on if it takes R134 A or R12 refridgent. R134A most likley looking around $150 depending on amount of freon the system holds. if its R12 open your piggy bank cause its going to cost you some coin as R12 is no longer in production you have to convert your system to R134A or find a gararge that still has some R12

Want to replace fron in 93 ford probe


1993 is a split year, if you have charging ports are a little bigger than the size of a tire valve stem then u have R12, if they are big then you have R134, most all Ford in 93 use R12. In the picture are adapters for a retrofit to R134, these screw on an R12 port, note the large cap R134 cap on the end of the adapter.

R12 to R134


You have to have the R12 completely evacuated. This is done at a repair facility that works on A/C. The only thing after that is screwing on 2 fittings to your existing lines and charge your system. Companies make retro-fit kits so the owner can do it themselves. These kits are available at most part stores.
