I sure would love to get advice on retrofitting an older Ford to R-134a. My instinct is to stay with r-12. I have about eight pounds of r-12, and I can get a thirty pound tank for $250 from a friend, which should last me a lifetime of recharges in the two projects I have in mind before I die. Isn't r-12 more efficient? Isn't r-12 easier to compress and therefore easier on compressors? I'm in the process of restoring a 1972 Galaxie; it will have a 1971 PI drivetrain. My daily driver is a 1972 LTD Brougham. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Joe

Up here in the great white north, we have something called redtec. It's compatable with R 12 or 134, and it takes about 5 minutes to throw a can in. The install kit comes with an adapter for either system. It works great, and I don't have to wait 3 weeks on a service call to top up my tractors. And when it leaks out, I don't have to feel bad about wrecking the ozone layer.
