Refrigerant Type: R12
Country of Origin: United States
Customer brought one of these disasters in today. I searched and searched but could not find the high side port. Anybody remember where they hid it on this thing? The low side is right next to the compressor.
Had a little problem with it my boss told me to go ahead and go through the low side only. I vacuumed it and put in 2.75 lbs of R12 in it. Thats what the sticker said it uses. I fired it up, turned it on, walked to the rear to make sure the compressor was engaged. It was.
Walked to the front and yelled at my boss that I don't think the condensor fan is working. A second later it blew the solder out of the high pressure bleed hole in top of the dryer which is mounted in the LR fender well. Lost the whole Charge!
Bummer. So I don 't want to run it again w/o a high side reading.
"As of the 1987 model year, the A/C refrigerant high pressure service valve was changed.
On the Vanagon, the service valve location is under the left rear evaporator panel.
On the Vanagon Camper, the service valve is located in the left rear cabinet."
Good luck. Seems like you work on some real nuggets.....
